Heartland Horseshoeing Application
How to apply
Once you have decided which course you wish to attend, find the dates on which the course is offered. You can find this on the Course Schedule Page.
Fill out the Enrollment Application and send it to HHS. The form may be found here:
You have two options with payment – mail a check in the amount of $1,000.00 with your HHS application, or please use the Paypal button below to pay instantly.
No applications will be accepted without the pre-enrollment deposit. The $1,000.00 will be applied in full towards your tuition.
Upon receipt of your application, you will be sent 2 copies of an Enrollment Agreement. Read and sign both copies. Keep one for your personal records and return one to HHS. You will then be completely enrolled, and we congratulate you on your decision to attend Heartland Horseshoeing School.
If you wish to pay your application deposit online, use the PayPal button below. Please note there is a $35.00 processing fee included. Thanks!
For Workshops, please use the following form. Please note, these are for workshops only, not for courses:
Pre-enrollment deposit information
The deposit that we ask with your application is just that. It is a partial payment for your upcoming tuition, so it will be applied in full towards the class you are signing up for. This means that the remaining tuition is $1000 less. If you pay online, it will charge you $1035, and $35 of that goes to PayPal, $1000 towards your tuition.
Please do not send in an application without it, or make the decision to send it in without being 100% committed to coming to the Heartland. Traditionally, we have to turn away a lot of interested students because classes fill so quickly. That is why the deposit is non-refundable. We do not want your deposit, we want you as a student to be here and be a part of the Heartland for the class you are signing up for. Having you here is how we make a living. The deposit is like earnest money when buying a property. It is a way to back up someone’s word.
Scholarship Opportunities | Edward Martin FWCF Farrier Scholarship
There was once an incredible craftsman in this industry named Edward Martin, FWCF. Edward was a farrier from a long line of farriers in Scotland, and he began his apprenticeship as a farrier across the street from the house he was born in, as did his father before him, and his grandfather before his father. Each of them bore the name Edward Martin, and their name is legend in this trade. In honor of this master craftsman, a scholarship has been formed, sponsored by the donations from the Draft Horse Classic Edward Martin Perpetual Shoeing Competition. Each year, one person is selected to receive partial funding for the farrier school of their choice, as long as they are enrolled in a class that is a minimum of 8 weeks long.
To qualify, students must write a 300 – 750 word essay about what this opportunity means to them personally. Why do you want to be a farrier? What will you do with your education that makes you a candidate for financial support? Persuasively present your case.
You must download this application, fill it out and send the application along with your essay by July 1st to:WM. E. Merfy, CJF
7511 White Oak Lane.
Browns Valley, CA. 95918

If you wish to attend HHS from a foreign country, we do have approval with SEVIS to help you apply for your student visa. The process does take time, so it is imperative that you sign up as far in advance as you are able. Begin by sending your application with a money order made out in US funds for your deposit, or pay the deposit online through the website. On your application, be certain to give your place of birth, the country that issued your passport, and your birth date with the month written out. Additionally, we need a picture of your passport as well as a letter from you stating that you have enough money to attend school and live in the United States while in school. We will then enter the information on the SEVIS website, which will allow us to print your I-20 form for M-1 student visas. We will send this form to you along with enrollment agreements. You will have to go online and pay an FMJ fee. Once you have done this, you can print the receipt, take the receipt, your enrollment agreement, I-20 form and passport to the US Embassy in your country, and get a student visa. As you can see, this is not a fast process, so please allow plenty of time to get everything done.
Foreign students will also have to pay their tuition in full at least 30 days prior to the start date of the class. You can do this with a money order or check made out to Heartland Horseshoeing School in US funds, or through direct bank wire. (There is an additional $40 fee through the bank.) Include the receipt for that payment in your packet to help when you cross the border. The US wants to make sure that anyone entering has sufficient personal resources to be a student in the US.
Students choosing to pay their deposit by check or money order may send $1000 to:
Heartland Horseshoeing School
327 SW 1st Lane
Lamar, MO 64759
Please note after filling out the application, you will be taken to a page where you will then be able to pay the $1,000 application deposit + the $35 PayPal fee. Your application will not be accepted until this deposit is paid.
