Service Area and Travel Fees

My primary service area is western Maine (Franklin County) and clients within a 30 mile radius of Wilton do not pay any trip fee.  


Clients outside this radius pay $1/mile trip fee.

You can always avoid paying a travel charge by trailering-in to our farm!

Training
Your horse may require a little extra TLC.  Sometimes it's just 10 or 15 minutes of patience, and that's part of what I consider standard farrier work.  When I begin to feel more like a trainer or punching bag than a farrier, however, I will charge a training fee. 

For horses who need more time than the scheduled farrier visit permits, I offer trailer-in training at our farm.  Our large, 5' high, cedar round pen provides a safe comfortable setting for horses with behavioral issues to learn how to stand for the farrier.

One time training fee during appointment: $45

Fallen on hard times?
I've been there, and I want to help you keep your horse sound.  If you can't afford to pay, I may consider trading my services for work around our farm (stall cleaning, clearing brush, etc) or for in-kind goods (garden transplants, meat, canned food, etc).  Contact me for details.
