About Our Horseshoeing School

Tucson School of Horseshoeing has farrier training facilities unsurpassed in efficiency and practicality to prepare you for your horseshoeing career. Careful thought and consideration have been given to their design and construction.


The Tucson School of Horseshoeing is in the heart of Tucson, Arizona. Tucson, a large sprawling metropolis with a tremendous number of horses, has maintained the atmosphere of the Old West. Tucsonans enjoy the comforts of rural Western living and the convenience of urban facilities year-round in the warm, arid climate.

Each student is assigned to a combination forge, work bench, vise, anvil, stand and all the blacksmith hand tools. Each student has an individual stall with cross ties for the horse they are working on. The school has grinders, arc, acetylene welders and a metal band saw for each of the students use.

Each instructor has no more than five students. We accept nothing less than perfection on every piece of work you turn out. We keep you upside down and underneath horses for the entire course. When you leave Tucson School of Horseshoeing, your craftsmanship in the field will be competitive with that of anybody in the business. If you work at shoeing horses, you will be able to turn out this high quality work at the rate of one horse shod per hour within one months time.


We estimate that over the past fifteen years, we have only lost three working days a year due to inclement weather. Our favorable location gives Tucson School of Horseshoeing the combination of natural assets and abundance of horses and a climate permitting outdoor work 52 weeks a year. No other horseshoeing school in the country can match these special advantages.
