Hot Shoeing-The debate over which is better, hot shoeing or cold shoeing, will continue as long as horses are being shod. The fact is, it's simply a matter of personal preference. Hot shoeing bonds the shoe to the horses foot directly without the use of nails. It does not hurt the horse at all. One area where farriers agree is the hot shoeing is recommended when using clips.
-Hot Shoeing: $15.00(per hoof)

Clips-Clips are flat extensions on the horseshoe that lay flat against the hoof wall. These can be used to help keep the shoe in place or some people choose them simply because they like the way they look.
-Clips: $5.00(per set)

Pads-Both standard (plastic) and leather pads are used for protection and to cushion shock. If you have ASB, Tennessee Walkers, or Morgans they typically have longer feet and may benefit from multiple pads on each hoof to improve their way of going. If you turn your horses out frequently, leather pads are not recommended b/c they retain moisture.
-Leather Pads: $10.00(per pair)

Sliding Plates-These are in addition to the shoe itself and are primarily used to shoe reining horses and occasionaly cutting horses. "Sliders" can be used on both the front and hind feet.

Emergency Visit: $20.00(per horse serviced)
