In Great Britain the approved route to becoming a qualified farrier is by undertaking an Advanced Apprenticeship.

There are three colleges in Great Britain who provide approved Farriery Apprenticeships - Hereford and Ludlow College, Myerscough College and Warwickshire College.

Please visit each of the college websites for more information.

An ancient craft…

A farrier is a skilled craftsperson who makes shoes for horses and similar animals.

A 'farrier' shouldn’t be confused with a 'blacksmith'. Both work with metal but only a farrier is permitted to fit shoes to horses.
