Farrier and Foot Care

A good farrier is quite literally worth his weight in gold!  If you've got one - make sure you treat him decently or he may decide he doesn't need you as a client.  If you think yours is not as good as he should be -  your horse is constantly losing shoes, or you spend hours waiting for him to turn up - discuss the problems with him and try to resolve them, or look for a new one.

Most farriers have at least as much work as they can handle - but don't be tempted to use an unlicensed farrier.  Apart from the risk to your horse's soundness - it is against the law.  

You can search for a farrier by postcode or county, or by name.
