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. The programs are designed to get students under as many horses as possible.
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 many disciplines, inlcluding but not limited to: reining, cutting, roping, jumping, dressage, vaulting, pleasure, and trail.
