Farrier Focus 2019 - your response

Thank you to all those who attended Farrier Focus this year and for giving their feedback - we cannot begin to make it better without your input!

We were delighted with the response and there were so many brilliant suggestions. Amongst them include better food, more tradestands and the International Team Horseshoeing Championships being closer to the tradestands. The demonstrations, tradestands, layout and atmosphere being amongst the favourite elements of the event. 

67% of the responses received were from qualified farriers, 17% from apprentices and 16% from allied professionals and interested parties.

We met the expectations of 100% of the exhibitors! Exhibitors were asked to score elements of the event on a scale of 1 to 5 with 5 being 'excellent', the average scores are shown below - 

  • Overall event rating - 4.68
  • How well informed - 4.32
  • Sponsorship opportunities available - 4.09
  • Ease of booking and set up - 4.64
  • Value for money - 4.0
  • Usefulness of event - 4.41

We have so much to reflect on and the survey has certainly given us plenty of 'food for thought'.

Congratulations to Ben Duthie, winner of the £50 cash prize and BFBA hoody!
