Addendum to our Programs as of October 1, 2011
Program Name: 
 Horseshoeing IV Advanced Course
 6 week course in Specialty Shoeing

Objective: Upon graduation of our Horseshoeing III course we emphasize that the first year out of school is the hardest. Taking this into consideration many of our graduates have chosen to specialize in shoeing a particular breed or event horse such as serving only show horses, polo, roping, reining, barrel, walking horses, hunter, jumper, drafts and the list and possibilities go on and on. This will depend on the type of horses, occupations and recreation in their area.

Course Description:  The intent is to provide Specialty Shoeing Courses on a more professional level to provide a higher paying self-employment for these men and women. At the completion of this course, the farrier can apply for the Journeyman level Farrier Certification.  We have 4 divisions for a total of 6 weeks of advanced training. We will offer one course a month, year round, allowing the working farrier to work around the schedule.

Total Clock Hours:  270.0 hours

Classroom/Shop/Total Hours:  50/220/270

Curriculum:  We have included the use of an Infrared Thermal Imaging Camera known as Thermography where images are downloaded into a computer program to evaluate the horses. A technique known as Equine Flexion Therapy will help in identifying the particular weakness in the performance of the horse due to improper shoeing. Extensive work and research will be performed and documented on each case. This includes gas and coal forge work, shoeing, evaluating, theory in the classroom. Lameness issues that occur to horses will be a high priority to ensure a safe and sound horse. Additional tools, books, DVD’s and supplies will be needed. Promoting and How-to sponsor a horse owner clinic in your area will be practiced.
