How Much Does a Horse Farrier Cost?

According to Wikipedia, a farrier is “a specialist in equine hoof care, including the trimming and balancing of a horse’s hoof and the placing of shoes to the horse’s foot.”  Your horse’s feet should be trimmed and shoed regularly, and this can be done by a professional farrier.

The cost of a farrier will depend on how many horses need to be “trimmed,” the complexity of the job, the geographical location and the farrier performing the job.  It can also vary depending on the farrier’s skill.  Like other craftsmen, the more experienced and skilled they are, the more in demand they will be.
