Oregon Farrier School
Get started with an exciting farrier career at Oregon Farrier School!

About Oregon Farrier School
Oregon Farrier School began in 2006 with the mission of producing quality farrier who will not only thrive in the trade but also be a blessing to the horse profession. Whether you want to be an everyday service provider farrier, a show horse farrier, or a competitive farrier/blacksmith, our programs are where you should begin.
All of our instructors are OFS and AFA certified and the head instructor is an American Farriers Association (AFA) Certified Journeyman Farrier. Beau Whitaker, CJF. We teach and follow the standards and concepts held by the American Farriers Association.  Students are trained and encouraged to go on and complete the lower and upper level certifications that the AFA offers.  At Oregon Farrier School we strive for each horse to function at their maximum potential in performance, soundness, and everyday life.  We believe that in doing so horse owners will enjoy long, useful lives from their equine animals.     

Professional Farrier Program
This 10-week program is for those who want to find work in the farrier field or start a farrier business. After completing this program students will leave with the education necessary to start a business in the farrier industry. It is designed to give students the skills needed to go out directly after graduation and properly start and run their own farrier business. With cutting edge methods taught, students have the advantage of an easy learning environment along with efficient and simple instruction. Upon graduation and completion of set standards students will be certified as professional farriers. This program is also for those who want a larger knowledge base for trimming/shoeing their own horses.

Advanced Farrier Program
This 20-week program is for those who want to obtain advanced farrier skills, knowledge, and experience. This program goes 10 weeks beyond its prerequisite, the Professional Farrier Program to make a total of 20 weeks. Students who enroll in the Advanced Farrier Program will dig deeper into farrier science to prepare themselves better to make a career in the farriery.  Not only will the students in this program gain 10 more weeks of valuable experience under horses, but will also study in greater detail lameness and event or discipline shoeing. Students will gain experience in the lameness section by engaging in both therapeutic and corrective exercises on horses.  The event and discipline section will cover a wide variety of shoeing on horses that compete or perform.
 
Practical Farrier Program
This 2-week program is designed for those who want a better understanding of the shoeing and trimming process. The better understanding includes learning how to trim and shoe your own horses. Another purpose of this class is for those of you who want more farrier knowledge for such things as buying horses, training horses or just having better communication skills with your farrier.

Does Oregon Farrier School Offer Clinics?
Absolutely! Educational clinics are offered periodically through Oregon Farrier School. These clinics can vary from general horseshoeing questions to specific problems that need to be addressed. Clinics are typically held on site at the school grounds or, if interest is shown, at a barn or facility of your choice.
