High Country Horseshoes is saddened to announce that due to the current Covid-19 situation, we will have to cancel our annual Spring Clinic this year.

We have been discussing with Delta Mustad Hoofcare Center (this years sponsor) on what we can do for our customers. We feel we have come up with some good news!

We are offering our Farriers our usual clinic discount during the week of May 4th-8th.

As we are still not able to have customers into the store, you may phone, fax or email us your order and you will receive the usual clinic discount of 10% off your ONE TIME order of shoes, nails, tools, pads and hoof care products (some exceptions may apply)

 BONUS……Delta Mustad has generously offered an EXTRA 10% off Mustad branded shoes & nails also!!!

We will make arrangements with you when you place your order for when you can pick it up (or we can ship it to you)

Thank you for all your co- operation during this challenging time.

Work safe & stay safe!
