Idaho Farrier Fund
Being a farrier can be an extremely rewarding career. In a recent poll, we found that 95% of our graduates are gainfully employed as farriers, both part time and full time. However, doing this job does not come without its risks. Between the hot metal, unpredictable horses, and sharp tools, it isn’t a question of IF you get hurt, it is WHEN, and to what extent.
This is why we are starting the Idaho Farriers Fund. This fund will be used as a savings account for our graduates if they ever get injured on the job and are needing a little extra help while they are healing up.
We want our future, current, and previous students to know that we are invested in their long-term success. For this reason, we are committing to contribute $5 for each horse we shoe at our school to a separate bank account as a small emergency fund for injured graduates.
100% of funds raised will be saved and placed aside for injured Idaho Horseshoeing School Graduates. Funds will be distributed on a case-by-case scenario determined by school administration and available funds. An update of distributed funds will be posted on the Idaho Horseshoeing School Alumni Facebook group. If you would like to donate, you can find the fund on Venmo @idahohorseshoeingschool
