Having attended an accredited 8 month farrier program, and several shorter courses, I'm confident I can provide an accurate review for this school. First off Brooks is an extremely patient, and encouraging instructor who obviously has a sincere desire to teach - effectively.

The course focused on gaining complete competency on the most core, essential, skills for this trade, while allowing for offshoots into specialized concerns. I correctly applied more shoes here in 2 hard weeks of work, than in my 8 month program.

Horses were overall a pleasure to work on, most being extremely patient, and the lab was well set up, clean, and modern. The entire aspect of living, eating, and relaxing on site at the ranch was a positive to allow long, hard days of working on horses.

Not only would I not hesitate to recommend this school, I'm returning to complete another specialized section as soon as space is available.

"Wyoming School of Horseshoeing provided an excellent course of instruction! This was just what I was looking for. I loved the fact that we were able to gain first hand experience on a variety of live animals. We worked on everything from miniature donkeys to draft horses.

Brooks's passion for shoeing horses is evident in his teaching. Above all, he has the right temperament for his role as an instructor. He is extremely patient!

When I think of this school, I think of professionalism. Professionalism is a main focus of this course, and is expected in all aspects. I also really liked that business is emphasized in the school. At the Wyoming School of Horseshoeing, they teach you more than how to shoe a horse!"

"The Wyoming School of Horseshoeing provided me with a unique experience from trimming donkeys to draft horses to a dissection of the lower leg. I could not be more satisfied
with this school.

Brooks's patients and passion for teaching were very evident in the day to day activities. Brooks wants to make the industry better by preparing students for real world situations.

The food and accommodations were excellent."

- Micah, WY

"After completing the 2 week course at Wyoming School of Horseshoeing, I feel confident in going out and shoeing horses safely. The food and the dorms are right on the ranch so there is no need to ever leave the school. Once you've paid tuition and tools, there is not much expense after that if you choose. The education I received here at the Wyoming School of Horseshoeing is something I can use for the rest of my life. I would recommend this school to anyone who has the
desire to shoe horses." -Aaron, NE

Typical "day in the life of a student"

Weekdays and 1 Saturday per month at the
Wyoming School of Horseshoeing

Begin your day to the sounds of chickens crowing as you walk just across the driveway to the Tombstone Café for a fresh western breakfast.

After filling up, make your way up the hill to the F.E. Warren Clubhouse for morning class time. Typically we are in the classroom from 8 to 10.

Head over to the Senator's Restaurant for a great lunch.

Make your way to the shoeing and forging barn where you will apply your classroom learning to the hands on approach working on horses and your forging skills! Your instructor will be in the barn working with you side by side so you get the best experience and learning possible for the rest of the day.

After a day of classroom work and Horseshoeing, you have the rest of the night to yourself. You can choose to study the classroom material for the next day in the comfortable bunk house, head back out to the barn for more forging practice, or take it easy and kick back at the Senator's Restaurant.

After work, the weekend is yours! Choose to study, take in some of the other opportunities that the Terry Bison Ranch offers, or take some time to experience the local attractions. Visit historic Cheyenne, home of Cheyenne Frontier Days just a few miles north, or Estes Park in beautiful Colorado about two hours south of the school. Take in a tour at one of Fort Collins many breweries, or hike around the Horsetooth Reservoir. We will see you back in class bright and early Monday morning!
