You can always avoid paying a travel charge by trailering-in to our farm!

Training

Your horse may require a little extra TLC. Sometimes it's just 10 or 15 minutes of patience, and that's part of what I consider standard farrier work. When I begin to feel more like a trainer or punching bag than a farrier, however, I will charge a training fee.

 

For horses who need more time than the scheduled farrier visit permits, I offer trailer-in training at our farm. Our large, 5' high, cedar round pen provides a safe comfortable setting for horses with behavioral issues to learn how to stand for the farrier.

 

One time training fee during appointment: $50

 

Fallen on hard times?

I've been there, and I want to help you keep your horse sound. If you can't afford to pay, I may consider trading my services for work around our farm (stall cleaning, clearing brush, etc) or for in-kind goods (garden transplants, meat, canned food, etc). Contact me for details.
