As we dig into the farrier science, students find that the straight forward and basic principles that we break trimming and shoeing down into, make it easy for them to learn while at school and remember after graduation. These quick and inexpensive programs are designed to get students under as many horses as possible. OFS is unique amongst many farrier schools for the fact that we don’t lack in horse numbers. Our facility alone contains about 70 head of horses. In addition we have haul in horses and we travel to other facilities to familiarize students with the farrier-client relationship. Types of horses that OFS has to offer experience on are: ponies, donkeys, drafts, miniatures, thoroughbreds, Arabians, Morgans, quarter horses, paints, warm bloods, PMUs, and horses that are used for reining, cutting, roping, jumping, dressage, vaulting, pleasure, and trail.
