Farriery Competition | Horse shoe-making.

Farriery Competition Schedule

Judge: Mr Stephen Hill FWCF
Judge’s Steward: Sammy O’Gara AWCF
Entry Fee: £10 per class except Eagle Eye (£5)

This year we are bringing back the ever popular Farriery Competition. This involves farriers and apprentices from all over the country coming to Burrs to compete in making horse shoes from an exact specification. Shoes will then be judged. There are various classes covering a wide range of possible shoes needed for different types of horses and workloads. You will get to see these shoes being made from a straight piece of steel to becoming ready to be put onto a horses foot.

Competitors will shoe-make out of the back of their own vans using their own tools and anvils, but steel will be provided. It is the competitors own responsibility to wear PPE.

This year’s Farriery Competition is very kindly sponsored by Sammy O’Gara AWCF and Walgar Farming.
