Hi,
I am looking for a really good farrier in the Bury, Bolton or Manchester area who is good with barefoot horses, who will also be good with a nervous youngster.

I currently have a very good one but the problem is that he is so popular I can never get hold of him and my poor boy is becoming overdue for his feet being trimmed.

Can anyone recommend one please. I would be greatful if you can.

Many Thanks
Gem

We use Marshall Proudfoot for ours, one retired with no shoes and one ridden, shoes on fronts only

Mark Bernard is very good, I've used him for years.
