Majors / Programs

Horse Owner Basic Hoof Care


This program is designed to give the students basic skills to trim and shoe their own horses.  The skills practiced in class will allow for evaluation and treatment of minor lameness and gait problems.  Classroom time is complimented with significant time in lab.  Horses are provided so students have ample hands-on.  These courses could also form the foundation for continuing in the professional farrier certificate or even an AAS degree in Farrier Business Management.
