Forge & Farrier, For Farriers

ATF wanted, full clean license, ex-military

Just seeing if anybody can point me in the right direction.

I’m 21 years old from Leeds, willing to relocate and I am ex-military (Household Cavalry Mounted Regiment) and I was wanting to train as a farrier in the Cavalry until I was unfortunately medically discharged.

I have lived in France on a horse farm after being in the military and I have also worked as a roofer during the pandemic.

I am trying to secure an ATF to employ me throughout the course of my apprenticeship college course with Myercough College and I am wondering if anybody knows any farriers who need a physically fit, reliable apprentice? I am willing to do anything it takes to secure employment or even just as little as a few days work experience if that’s all there is to offer. I have a full clean license and I am willing to make brews, clean work areas, sweep up and hold bad horses etc just to gain experience round a qualified farrier. If anybody could point me in the right direction or know anyone who needs a hand it would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you
