What customers say:

Had Will come and trim my boys feet today. He was bang on time !!!! First he did my big lad Taz who took to him straight away then he tackled my 10 month (who is nervous and a rescue case) and he was fantastic wasn't expecting get his feet lifted never mind getting them trimmed. Absolutely highly recommended.
Thanks again

5* Excellent Farrier would recommend to anyone. Especially good with youngstock, and nervous types.

—  Melanie Waugh


Would definitely recommend Will as a farrier. Extremely punctual and friendly. If you have an emergency, he always provides flexibility where he can. Very considerate and responsible around our horses. After moving house, I had no choice but to change farriers due to being too far away from my previous farrier. He has now shod our horses twice and done a grand job on both occasions.
