Event description

Description

Sponsored by Eustance Pack and Tack Outfitters and professional farrier Austin Talley from Alphreta, GA.


Learn low impact horse camping with special tricks of the trade from decades of outfitting experience. Confidently shoe your own horse for your next backcountry adventure.

Includes breakfast, lunch, and class materials. Shoeing tools, camping and packing equipment, and livestock will be available for student use.

This is a hands on training experience. The ability to perform standing, bending, lifting and other physical activities allows the most benefit from the practical training portions of class. Individual learning plans can be created for those with specific needs, if arranged prior to the beginning of class.

This course is designed for those that already have some basic horsemanship skills. If you are completely new to horses, inquire about our beginner classes.
