FARRIER INTERNATIONAL TESTING SYSTEM
The practical portion of the higher level exam will consist of a candidate shoeing a complete horse with handmade shoes. The hind feet of the horse will be shod with open heeled, 3/4 fullered shoes and quarter clips. The front feet will be shod with a pair of shoes from the list of shoes. Each candidate will draw for the type of shoes to be made for the front feet. More time will be allowed for some shoes as described in the list of shoes to be used on the horse.
