Friday Feature: Farrier

This week’s letter is F.  If you missed last week’s Friday Feature, take a look at Educator (Equine).

A farrier is involved in the trimming (and potentially shoeing) of horses, working to keep their feet in the best possible shape.

The Horse Previously Wearing this would be in Need of a Farrier

Their job will generally involve:

  • handling many different horses
  • trimming horse feet
  • tacking on shoes
  • corrective work on horse’s feet that affect their leg alignment
  • lots of physical work
  • travel

In Australia there are trimmers who aren’t qualified, those who are undertaking a course and others who are qualified – all the while tending to client’s horses.  If you’re interested in learning the tools of the trade and undertaking an apprenticeship, take a look at Courses for Horses.


If you’re considering this area as a potential equine career to pursue, you may be interested in the other posts on this blog:
