Required Tools

Buying the right tools is a very important investment as you start your career as a professional farrier. Many students make the mistake of buying the wrong tools when they start. To help you make an educated investment, we offer both tools for sale and for rent at the school. The cost to rent a full tool kit is $350 for the full course. If you wish to buy all the tools when you start the course, we offer student tool kits for $1600. Our tool kit includes everything on this list.
