[EquineCushings] Barefootin' - a little rant
Just curious, isn't it the same with Horse shoeing schools?Yes it is - but there is a long, time-honored tradition of apprenticeship in the shoeing business.

I had private training, and then spent a LONG time working on the horses in a riding program that I was running. The horses there taught me an awful lot - and I'm grateful to them for that (and sorry for what I put them through too).
