Our farriery service differs enormously from that of a regular farrier. Normally a farrier will spend around an hour shoeing your horse and then move on to the next. This allows him /her to keep costs down through the economies of scale.
We understand that sometimes horses and riders will need far more from their farrier. We take the time to watch you and your horse, both in hand and under saddle – after all, this is where you work together when competing! We then will discuss with you any concern and involve other professionals such as veterinary surgeons, physios and trainers/coaches. From this wealth of knowledge and information, we can make a detailed shoeing plan and implement it. This will allow us to help you achieve your best and steal those extra points or seconds that might take you from third to first. Basically, our aim is simple – to achieve the best and support and protect your horse whilst doing it!
Remedial work following injury is also very important to you and your competition horse. We understand that one month off of work often means three out of competing. We are well equipped to achieve an efficient recovery alongside your usual team.
We work in an unrushed and professional manner. We dedicate ourselves to your horse for as long as is required. We use the best products available to us, to help us achieve the elite farriery you and your horse deserve.
We are pleased to offer our customers the option of you visiting us at Bow Lake Equestrian with your horse, where good assessment conditions are available, or us visiting you at your yard.
