The only regret I have about attending Troy’s school is I didn’t do it sooner.  You would be hard pressed to find an educator in this field of study with the passion and dedication Troy has for teaching his students.  The small class size allows Troy to move each student along at their own pace which I benefited greatly from.  If you want to learn how to shoe horses and shoe them right, Troy Price’s Horseshoeing School is where you want to go to school.  I’d give it five stars.

I have personally known and observed Troy Price as he developed from apprentice to world-class farrier, competing in and judging farrier clinics around the world.  In 2010, Troy was the featured clinician for our annual open house/clinic.  This clinic was rated as one of the best clinics for purposes of education by many of our attendees.  I sincerely recommend Troy as an instructor in all aspects of farriery.

I first met Troy Price in the spring of 2002.  I gave him a call about the shoeing school I was thinking about attending.  Troy asked me if I would like to come ride with him.  I rode with him a couple times that summer before going to shoeing school in the fall.  Right from the beginning he had me under horses, pulling shoes and showing the basics of trimming.
After returning from shoeing school, I started working with Troy.  He was always willing to take the time to help me learn even though he could have done the job much faster without me.  After a long day, we would go in the shop and he would work with me on forging exercises.
Troy has a passion to teach the art of horseshoeing.  If you are willing to work hard, Troy is willing to do all he can to help a person learn.  Without Troy’s positive attitude and his willingness to teach and give of his time, I feel I wouldn’t have achieved the success that I have.

“Troy Price Horseshoeing School is by far one of the top shoeing schools in the country!  I would recommend this school to anyone that is interested in learning this trade.  Troy and Jenny Price have gone out of their way to develop an environment for success!  I wish them all the best in their continued endeavors as I know anyone who attends this school will become a knowledgeable, capable, and valuable asset to this industry.”

“The amount of horses that were available to us every day was a big help.  It allowed us to become more efficient at a faster rate.  Troy was always available to answer questions when needed.  The smaller class size allowed this to happen.”

“To anyone considering attending Troy Price Horseshoeing School, it was worth all the time and money spent here.  If I had known this was an option before attending and graduating college, I would have gone here in a heartbeat.  I have never had an instructor like Troy, someone so personable, knowledgeable, and good at teaching.  He is able to do something many teachers can not do and that is relate situations to your real world experience, but not only that he shows you how to do something, and if he sees that you are struggling he actually figures out a different way to teach you the task so you understand it in a way that works for you.  I came into the 12 week program not knowing if I would have the confidence and ability to start my own shoeing business.  I left with not only the confidence but the knowledge and experience to go out into the horse world and succeed.  Not only did I get the experience and knowledge, but he helps you start up your business by helping you find the tools you need at the best price he can find and is truly excited for you making you feel good about your decision.  If you make your choice for a horseshoeing school be sure to base your decision, not on location or size of school, but on finding someone who lifts you up and truly has the skills, knowledge, personality, and drive to truly help you and want you to succeed and that school is Troy Price Horseshoeing School.”

“I think you progress faster here than you would at the bigger schools because there’s a lot more one-on-one time.  Troy knows what he’s talking about and he’s a great teacher.”

Colt Ingram – Virginia – 12- week horseshoeing student

Best learning experience I ever had.  Wish I could have stayed longer to learn more.  Troy is a great teacher and strives to “Make Horseshoeing Great Again!”

“I greatly recommend Troy Price Horseshoeing School!  Wish I had come straight out of high school.  There are plenty of horses to trim and shoe, and we were nailing on shoes the 1st day of week 2.  There is plenty of one on one time with Troy, and he will make sure you understand what you are learning to the fullest.  If you are willing to put the time in, Troy will too in all aspects of forging and shoeing.  If you like to work hard and want to run your own business and like being around horses, I would definitely come here!  Don’t ask Troy for more horses or he will give you more than you can handle.”

“Troy’s two week trim class was one of the most amazing experiences I’ve ever had.  On day 1 we were trimming and hot shoeing dead legs; by day 5 I was shoeing live legs.  I am convinced that I received more one-on-one instruction than most people who attend a trim class.  Best aspect of the course was the low student to instructor ratio so my entire 8 hours/day were spent having instruction while I trimmed/shod…Troy changes his instruction to fit the needs of his students; in other words, if there’s something in particular that you want to learn, he will change your instruction that day to meet your goal.  I received an excellent education. I’d strongly recommend this trimming course.”

                                Ashlyn Kuersten – Michigan – 2- week horseshoeing student

The student to teacher ratio was excellent and each student got all the horses they wanted to work on.

Attending the 12 week Basic Horseshoeing Course has been the best experience I could have had.  I definitely learned a lot more than  I would have expected to in a mere 12 weeks.  I would never have thought that  I would be able to shoe a horse after only one practice run.  Apart from the great amount of knowledge and skills I’ve learned, I also gained some pretty great friends.

12 weeks ago I couldn’t identify anything of a hoof except the hoof.  Today I finish knowing the anatomy, diseases, and overall care for a hoof.  Troy took the time (and a lot of patience) pushing me to be better, pushing me to be faster while shoeing.  If it were not for the small class size, I do not think I would have the knowledge and confidence I do today.  This class is hard.  There is a lot of strength, speed, but most of all you have to use your head, eyes, hands, thumbs, and horsemanship and using that and Troy’s tutelage things go easy.  I strongly encourage anyone who is looking into this as a career to enroll in Troy Price Horseshoeing School.  You will not be let down and you will learn.

Troy Price – World class horseshoer and a world class teacher.  Troy’s patience, knowledge, and ability helps him to approach each student to their learning ability and make it as easy as possible.  If you put your heart and soul into being a good farrier, Troy will put his heart and soul in teaching you.

Troy will push you to learn and accomplish things that don’t seem possible to the inexperienced eye.  There are so many aspects of horseshoeing that he can show, explain, and have you do that would take a few years of trial and error if you were to try on your own.  I highly recommend the school to those seeking a solid education in the horseshoeing trade.

Troy is a very good teacher and is very good at what he does.  I couldn’t believe all the things I learned while I was at school.  I would highly recommend anyone to this school.

                                           Quinton Wingerter – Michigan – 6 week horseshoeing student

If you are just starting our or you are an experienced farrier wanting to continue your education, I highly recommend attending Troy Price Horseshoeing School.  You will not be disappointed.  If you want the right start with a good foundation in the fundamentals and advance work, Troy Price DELIVERS.

My expectations were met the very first day of the Trim Course.  On the second day, Troy had my class forging.  I couldn’t believe on my second day I was performing the basics of shaping a shoe and on the third day, I was trimming live horses.  Before attending the Trim Course, I had no prior horseshoeing experience.  This proves how great a teacher Troy is.  His knowledge goes far beyond the expectations of the industry.  He wants his students to succeed.  His unique teaching style is easy to understand and easy to apply when you go home

                                           Micheleen Pierce – Michigan – 2 week horseshoeing student

The adaptability of Troy Price Horseshoeing School makes it suitable for all types of students.  Troy is able and willing to alter teaching style in relation to the goals of the students.  I really liked that I was able to meet and eventually surpass the goals I had entering the course.  Troy is obviously more than qualified in his career and in turn excels at running a horseshoeing school.
