Trimming & Shoeing Clinic continues to expand in Dupree, SD


Over the week of June 18, 2018, two Olsen Equine clinics were held in Dupree, SD.  Eighteen participants from as far away as Hardin, MT and Hazen, ND, and from nearby Dupree and Eagle Butte, SD. Throughout the clinics, participants learned about and practiced trimming, shoeing and blacksmithing. The Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe Reservation offered scholarships for several of the students to attend. This marks the third year that Lee Olsen offered his clinic in Dupree, where he grew up. Lee Olsen, American Farrier Association Certified Journeyman Farrier, says he enjoys getting to share his what he’s learned to help others. The West River Eagle, Dupree’s local newspaper, remarked, “The reason Olsen comes back to Dupree is to share his craft with other people who want to invest in a career that can show a quicker return on the investment than a college degree for anyone who is willing to approach the craft with the idea that there is always something new to learn.” Lee hopes to continue the annual shoeing clinic in Dupree, and possibly even adding another clinic later this summer. If you’d like to hear more about upcoming clinics, please contact Lee. “This is one of the best experienced I had. I would like to comb back again and would recommend to anyone who wanted to learn to be a farrier.” “Great clinic. I feel when I leave here I will able to comfortably trim my own horses, which was my goal coming in.” “Thank you for being so helpful when a guy struggles. Showing me what I’m doing wrong and letting me fix it.” Got questions about equine hoof care? Join Lee's Facebook group, "Ask the Farrier," and be part of the iron-sharpening discussions.
