Top Concerns of Farriers All Over the World

Major farrier worries are about the same regardless of where you trim and shoe horses:

  • Risk of injury
  • Being unfairly blamed for lameness issues
  • Getting paid
  • Client loyalty
  • Rival farriers undercutting my prices
  • Camaraderie between farriers is disappearing
  • Too many young farriers coming into their territory
