Olsen Equine

Doing whatever it takes to keep your horse happy and healthy

“Lee has a feel for the horse and the customer, and that’s a great combination for a successful farrier. His knowledge and quality of work, accuracy of his appointments is the reason I recommend him.”
Chris Cox, Mineral Wells, TX

“Lee is an excellent farrier, whom I have used for a few years now. He is very professional and dependable, doing his best to try and make my horses reach their full potential–including one horse who is very difficult and frustrating to shoe. Thanks, Lee!”

Kelly Allen-Clifton, Professional barrel racer & futurity trainer

“I have known Lee for quite a while and he has been shoeing my horses for the past five years. He does a great job. He is hard working, trustworthy and always willing to work with you on special needs of your horses. He has also turned me on to Omnis cubes. They are easy to feed, clean and keep my horses looking great.”

George McQuain, Production Manager, Classic Rope Company
“Can’t say enough good things about Lee! I have a jumper with some “feet challenges,” and Lee took the time to assess his gaits, his conformation, and special needs given his type of discipline. My horse is traveling better than ever! Professional, kind and trustworthy!”
Jaclyn Johnson McKesson
“The Lee Olsen shoeing clinic has been very beneficial to me. I went to the school this summer in Dupree, SD to learn how to shoe my own horses. When I left the clinic, I not only knew how to correctly put a shoe on, but gained knowledge about horses and what to look for. Lee was very knowledgeable and taught us about horses and not only about nailing shoes on. I would recommend Lee to any level horseman that wanted to learn how to shoe and shoe confidently. I went to the school to shoe and trim for myself and has paid for itself time and time again. If someone was interested in making a career out of shoeing, I would recommend going to one of Lee’s clinics to get started.”
Layne Carson, Grassy Butte, TX
“Lee is an amazing farrier and horseman. This guy is class act. One of the best men I know. Proud to call him my friend.”
Cody Sullins, Stephenville, TX

“It’s hard to find a farrier who truly wants to master their craft and will genuinely take an interest in maximizing your horses performance. Lee is top shelf in both categories.”

Jake Link, Weatherford, TX

“Lee Olsen has been a farrier in the Stephenville area for many years and works for many of our clients. He is easy to work along-side and has an excellent skill set.”

“I have been around horses my entire life and shoeing my own since I went to school. Been shoeing professionally off and on eight years. For me shoeing began to be something I dreaded. Lee has been a friend of mine for a few years and he always offered for me to jump in with him and go apprentice. Time and circumstances never let that happen. Finally I took him up on it and it was the best thing I ever did. He has taught me so much about this trade. Everything from hands on shoeing, anatomy, business, and customer service. He has a amazing talent for teaching. I have been an instructor in other aspects of life, and I know you can be the best at what you do but it takes a certain type to teach. Lee always hits on the positives and still shows you the things that will take you to the next level. He’s is a student of his craft and very open minded to other ideas. He is constantly thirsty for knowledge. Lee took me from a “horseshoer” to a farrier. He opened up new doors and I love this trade again. I am excited to go through the certification process this spring. If you wanna be the best, be around the best.”
Cody Sullins, Stephenville, TX
“When we are in the process of finding a farrier for our horses there are a few things that are important to us. We value a farrier that will work on our horses like he is working on his own, with respect for the horse’s attitude and for the horse’s longevity. We also appreciate “non-cookie- cutter thinking,” where each horse has its own specific needs. We have found over the past few years that Lee has remained proactive in finding the best tools, studying and using the best techniques, and seeking further education. His care for detail is appreciated and Lee is highly recommended by us for any horse lover’s horse.”
Bret Robinson, Eastland, TX

“I have worked with Lee on several cases and been impressed with his knowledge and ability to correctly shoe a horse. Lee is always very professional and pleasant to work with. I would definitely recommend him to shoe any type of horse whether it be basic shoeing or complicated corrective cases.”

Dr. Ty Tipton, DVM DACVS-LA ESMS, Equine Sports Medicine & Surgery, Weatherford, TX
“Lee is a great farrier, and what sets him apart is his horsemanship skills and understanding the needs of the horse for all disciplines.”
Rickey Green, Multiple NFR qualifier and champion, Morgan Mill, TX

“Lee has been Shoeing my horses for the past 6 years. He is dependable, and he makes time for my horses and I whenever we need him. He keeps my horses sound and their feet looking good. His work is high quality and nothing but the best.”

Slick Robison, Weatherford, TX; Rope horse trainer
“Lee has been shoeing my horses for some time now. He is very knowledgeable about horses’ feet and knows what your horse needs to be his best. He also takes the extra time shoeing your horse to make sure he travels correctly. I would highly recommend Lee to anyone. He is very dependable and will be on time every time. Check him out- he would be hard to beat.”
Harold Green, Lipan, TX
“Lee has been shoeing my horses for several years now and I could not be happier. He is reliable and always contacts me when my horses are due. We had a horse founder and he did a great job on educating me on how to treat it and he used a special shoe for her and she is doing great now. He is also a very knowledgeable horseman and an accomplished roper. He has given me some great horsemanship advice as well as roping tips, and my roping has improved dramatically. He really takes good care of me and my horses. I always recommend Lee to anyone I come across.”
Paul Syptack, Weatherford, TX

“Lee is a very talented person. Good head on his shoulders.”

Matt Lopez, Keldron, SD; Cutting horse trainer
“Lee Olsen is a knowledgeable horseman and an accomplished farrier. His work is recommended by leading equine veterinarians in the north Texas area. Lee is well connected to the equine marketplace, and he has a loyal customer base. His clients include top trainers and winning competitors in an array of performance horse disciplines. As a result, he takes care of some of the best equine athletes in the business. Lee is an honest businessman, and he is a hard worker. He is dependable and responsible. Lee has an outgoing personality. He makes friends easily, and he works hard to make sure his customers get the best work and best service possible.”
Ken Bray, CEO Equibrand, Morgan Mill, TX

“Many horse owners do not have a full understanding of how an equine athlete needs to be trimmed or shod. I have fallen under this category. I have experienced a few different farriers for different reasons. I have a head horse that needed her coffin joints injected because of improper shoeing and too much pressure on the coffin joint. After switching to Lee Olsen the horse has not had a single problem with her front feet. As I got ready to sell this horse the customer had a pre-purchase exam done. Once X-Rays of the feet had been taken, the vet made a statement including, “If this horse had not been shod properly then you would have some major problems with the coffin joint, whoever is shoeing this horse is doing a nice job.” Lee takes his time and makes sure he is fitting the horse’s needs. I live two hours from Lee; I appreciate his care and passion for my horses, and I will drive to him to ensure my horses’ feet are being taken well care of.”

Clay Deen, Wills Point, TX; Team roper
“I have had great luck with Olsen Equine finding me and my wife horses. In a six month time frame we purchased 5 horses and he helped our neighbor find one also. Also is a great horseshoer and teacher!”
Devin McGrath, Belle Fourche, SD

“Lee is a great shoer. He is very dependable and cares about what he does. I would recommend him to anyone.”

Richard Durham, Henrietta, TX; NFR qualifying heeler
“Lee Olsen has kept my horses performing at their highest level. Lee went the extra mile to not only teach me the basics of shoeing, but he also helped me get better performance by working on my riding and horsemanship. Thanks to Lee’s suggestions, I have been to the pay window more often and learned a LOT!”
Matt Martin
“I went to Lee Olsen’s school last summer and have nothing bad to say about it. Through out the class Lee had an unbelievable amount of patience trying to teach me how to properly shoe a horse. I learned not only how to put shoes on a horse, but also the anatomy and even understood how to be a better horseman. Lee provided everything we needed for the class, which gave me no excuses to learn how to become and build myself to be a successful farrier.”
Blake Williams
“Performance horse owners know the importance of a reliable farrier, who’s not only knowledgeable, but a true horseman. Lee has shown great patience with our changing schedule and our horses. He makes individual recommendations for treatment and maintenance based on his evaluation of each horse. Lee’s passion and desire to improve each horse is refreshing. Lee Olsen is a rare find who checks all the boxes and we’re thankful to know him!”
Clyde & Amy Warner, Azle, TX
“Lee has done a great job on two of my horses that aren’t the best to shoe. He’s always there on schedule to do them and will always make time to come by if there is a problem. I would highly recommend him on any type of shoeing!”
Heath Hardman

Lee is very professional and most importantly very knowledgable about his profession and very good at his job. Although Lee is already a outstanding farrier, he strives to learn more and become better than he already is and I value that. Lee takes the time to show his customers his work and explain why he does or does not do or recommend certain things, but also listens to the needs and desires of his clients. Thanks, Lee!”

Billie Ann Harmon, Professional barrel racer & futurity trainer
“Lee is a class act that always does a first class job on our horses’ feet. Nice to see someone take this kind of pride in their work these days. We have been feeding the Danco Omnis complete alfalfa cube for almost two years with great results.”
Lance Inderman
“In today’s times of busy schedules and hurrying everywhere we go, it is nice to know that the horses you love and care for are taken care of when it comes to your farrier. In the last two years, Lee has proven to stay consistent with keeping my roping horses well shod and balanced. I have had no lameness issues, praise GOD since Lee has shown up to 4 Spades ♠ Land & Cattle, LLC to take over as the number one farrier for the ranch.

Lee prides himself on:
1.) Presentation and cleanliness, before and after the job.
2.) Patience & dedicated to shoe one precise and balanced.
3.) Loves and cares for your horses as much as you do.
4.) Easy electronic billing process for accountability.”
