Idaho Horseshoeing School is one of the largest and most sought-after farrier schools in the world. All the teaching facilities and housing are in the small town of Roberts Idaho.
Idaho Horseshoeing school has 3 full-sized homes for student housing, 2 shoeing barns, an anatomy lab, and a full workout facility. We have a 30 student teaching capacity with 5 full time instructors and 1000’s of horses to work on throughout your course.
As a student at IHS, you will start the first 8 weeks of your educational journey at the North Campus. Here you will learn the fundamentals of the farrier trade. The North Campus is a place where you focus on horsemanship, basic shoeing, forging, and anatomy. The horsemanship portion will go over basic groundwork and teaching a horse to stand for a farrier. This course is taught and managed by Certified Farrier Cody Harris and Dustin Smith.
Once the male students complete the first 8 weeks of their farrier course, they will move to a home closer to the Main Campus called mens advanced housing. The women will stay in their home for the duration of their course, regardless of course length. For the last 8-12 weeks of the students course, they will be taught shoeing for different breeds, lameness’s, advanced forging in a coal forge, and how to start a business.
When you graduate from the 20 week course, our goal for you is to have a legal LLC established, a business bank account with an attached debit card, a basic understanding of quickbooks, and a personalized website to get your business started legally and correctly.
By the time you graduate from our longest course, you will have all the tools and abilities you will need to start your business. The last 8-12 weeks on the main campus are taught by Journeyman farrier, Riley Mickelsen.
