His mission is to ensure you receive the daily “hard work” education to prepare you for self-employment. This relates to all aspects of the training we advertise.

Co-Owner, Office Administrator, Certifying Official. With 26 years in this business, I am familiar with the history, short comings and developments and strides and setbacks made in the farrier industry. Most school owners know each other and what we each offer. Remember, this is a very small industry within a larger equine industry but still smaller than most industries. We have made good friends over the years in every state of the US. As the BWFA secretary, we are right on top of providing farrier certification for those who EARN it.
Our office will assist you in any way to make your time here a hard-working dirty job, but enjoyable. We want you to be successful. Apprenticeships and friendships are achieved from this school and we are proud of those who have come before you. We expect you to gain the knowledge that you are seeking and more. When you go home and share it with other horse owners who desperately need a farrier’s assistance you are helping the overall health of the horse.
