Owner Craig Horvath began an apprenticeship in shoeing horses when he was 17. Following in the footsteps of his Father (another farrier with 35 years of experience) he underwent 6 years of apprenticeship at Calder Racetrack in Miami FL. Craig learned all methods of hot and cold shoeing, corrective shoeing, overall hoof care, and preventative maintenance. Upon completion of the apprenticeship, Craig was certified with the State of Florida and the IJHU (International Chapter of Journeyman Horseshoers). He spent considerable time at the Gulfstream and Hialeah racetracks in Florida as well.
Since moving to North Carolina over 10 years ago, he has built a reputation of excellence and dependability among his clients. Craig's service area includes a 25-mile radius around Raleigh, NC.
