A farrier is the trade of hot cold and corrective shoeing, and trimming of horse hooves. A farrier will pair out the sole, balance the hooves and either put horse shoes on the feet or leave them bare foot. The hooves must be balanced in both width and height. A farrier uses different tools to keep your horses hooves as healthy as possible. You should have a farrier to come out and see your horse every 6 weeks but this may vary depending on the condition of your horses hooves.
