Having grown up in a professional and competitive showjumping background I understand the demands of a busy working yard.
I am a member of the worshipful company of farriers, I qualified in February 2011. Since qualifying I have worked in several high profile racing yards for a company called chapel forge farriers Ltd based in Lambourn. In 2016 I set up my own business and currently provide farrier services for a number of high profile yards based in Lambourn, I have worked with many top class horses including Toast of New York and Saoluen. This role involves many aspects, including dealing with a variety of people on a day to day basis including, yard managers, trainers, veterinary surgeons and my own employees, I’m regularly faced with difficult cases that need resolution by way of quick thinking.
I currently work long hours and varied hours and I am willing and capable of being flexible to get the job done.

I am a highly skilled farrier with 14 years experience. I have a passion for corrective shoeing, I have undertaken a work shadow placement in Kentucky which dealt primarily with equine podiatrists and I have a particular interest in acrylic work.
As part of my current role as owner and director of Britton farrier services Ltd I train and supervise junior farriers on a daily basis, I am responsible for ensuring a high level of services is provided to all the racing yards we attend. I have previously trained apprentice farriers, and I have a talent for nurturing young talent ensuring they become excellent qualified farriers.
As a business owner, I am required to managed all aspects of the business, I carry out stock takes, I visit racing yards to establish the amount of work required, meet with trainers and veterinary surgeons to make a shoeing plan to optimize soundness and comfort for the horses.
Looking forward to hearing from you.
