Forge & Farrier, For Farriers

Apprenticeship available

We have a vacancy for our next apprentice starting November 2020 (with a 2-week trial period to be undertaken ASAP).
We are looking for a motivated, enthusiastic, dedicated, and professional person to join our team. They must be able to work as part of a team and individually. An interest or background with horses is helpful but not essential.
We are the largest farriery company in the UK, and our ATF Gary Pickford has trained well over 70 farriers over the past 35 years. We have a large high-profile client base and travel all over the country from our Forge based in the “Valley of the Racehorse”, Lambourn. This clientele is varied, covering both flat and jump yards, studs, liveries, and personal clients. We also work in the exciting and challenging field of therapeutic corrective shoeing and with vet referrals, giving the candidate an exceptional chance to learn and train that many other ATFs cannot offer. They therefore must have a willingness to adapt and have attention to detail.
