Monday, Tuesday and Friday are usually spent in the field, shoeing horses at neighboring farms and horse ranches. Wednesday is generally spent at the school doing horses that are brought to the facility. Thursday is designed to be a forge day without horses, although it often turns into a shoeing day. This schedule is not set in concrete since circumstances may require the schedule to be changed.
Student shoeing at HHS
We leave the school on field days at around 8:30 am. We try to return to the school at approximately 3:30 pm in order to hold class. On most Wednesdays there are too many horses to hold class, and we shoe until all horses are done.
