Horseshoeing School

Hello I am Dennis Cappel founder/ instructor of Farrier School est 1993. Watch this video and get to know me better and why this school could be just what you have been looking for. You will see students being instructed as well as the mapping system and much more .

Watch this and get ready to join the fun! Hope to see you at one of my monthly classes.

I started this class in 1993 for some of my customers who wanted to do their own horse shoeing. It wasn't long after the first few classes that some of the graduates were shoeing for other people and many of them have gone on to become full time farriers. I have had companies call me and offer this trade school to those looking seeking other employment.

I believe the reason this training program has been so successful for its graduates is because of my personal attention. I personally teach every class and since I have over 30 years of experience and I continue to stay on the cutting edge of techniques to help horses to become more comfortable and better performers, I will share this valuable information with you. I am also am a horse trainer and competitor as well so I have a better understanding of how the horse actually feels than someone who is just a horseshoer.
