Farriers Pages 'Commend a Farrier'
Helping horse owners ‘find a farrier’
The old adage “no hoof, no horse” still rings true; so it’s little wonder that a good farrier is one of the most important people in any horse owner’s life, from the happy hacker to the serious competitor. However, finding a good farrier in the first place is often down to a combination of word-of-mouth recommendations and ‘trial and error’ shoeings before owners find someone they trust with the welfare of their horse’s precious hooves.
A new feature on www.farrierspages.com, the online farriery resource for the horse owner, will help owners not only find farriers in their area but view commendations from other customers via its user-friendly online database. The aim is to help them make an informed choice when it comes to finding a farrier, as Claire Brown of farrierspages.com explains:
“Finding the right farrier can be difficult, and the aim of the ‘commend a farrier’ service is to help make it easier. Alongside recommendations from other horse owners it will highlight those who have been awarded 'Master Farrier' status from the Worshipful Company of Farriers (WCF) and also those that have won a WCF Best Shod Horse award.
“We’d like to encourage horse owners - and vets - to visit the site and recommend their farrier’s services; whether they’ve helped rectify a particular hoof-related ailment or injury, or are simply always on time, polite, helpful and consistently do a good job. It will only take a few minutes of your time, but it’s a great way to show your appreciation for the work your farrier does whilst helping other horse owners find a farrier they can trust – we hope that the overall effect will be more well-shod, sound and happy horses!”
