REQUIRED SUPPLIES FOR THE ADVANCED HORSESHOEING & BLACKSMITHING COURSE: Students must have hand tools, text book and manual. The required hand tools and text are itemized in 12-week Required Tools. If you already have tools of your own you may bring them. If not then PLEASE buy your tools from us here in our office. The reason we ask this is that we have found that almost all of the students who buy their tools elsewhere end up buying the wrong tools to the extent that they are not even usable, leaving them having to purchase new tools anyway. We do have economy brand tools as well as the very best tools, and all are at very competitive prices. You will be given your course manual when you arrive at school.
