Pacific Coast Horseshoeing School is an award winning horseshoeing school with the highest quality facilities and instruction available. Our commitment to students' success, regardless of background or prior experience, has made us sought out by students worldwide. After 8 weeks of intensive learning and hands on experience, our students are well-prepared for their career as farriers.
Our instructors are or have been full time professional farriers. They have years of experience running a business and supporting their families by shoeing horses. They understand and teach not just the theory of excellent shoeing but what it takes to run a successful business and comfortably support their family.
The curriculum was developed by Bob Smith and is the official Foundation Credential for the International Association of Professional Farriers. The instruction provides the students the information needed to take the Foundation Credential Exam with the International Association of Professional Farriers.
Practice is a critical component to getting the maximum benefit from shoeing school. All students have the opportunity to practice beyond school hours. The forge area is open from 7am to 8pm, seven days a week. Access to the classroom video and book library is unlimited and is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
Students' safety and learning environment are paramount at Pacific Coast Horseshoeing School. We do not bring in rank, ill-mannered, dangerous horses for students. You cannot learn how to balance a moving foot! We are committed to providing good quality horses for you to practice your professional skills.
