KHS strongly believes that working apprenticeships provide the best means for farriers to complete their education. That’s why placing our top graduates in working internships has always been our goal. Apprenticeships not only allow our students to extend their education under a trained master; they also allow students to obtain valuable first-hand experience and learn what is involved in successfully operating a working farrier service.
Most apprenticeships include paid compensation, with salaries negotiated on an individual basis. Many students who have completed farrier apprenticeships have been able to launch their professional farrier career at the upper reaches of the earnings scale. While KHS cannot guarantee a paid apprenticeship to all graduates, we will make every effort to place qualified graduates of our 24 and 36 week classes in a qualified position.
