Horse owners can now check out a helpful new website from the Farriers’ Registration Council, which has detailed information on all aspects of farriery.

Particularly helpful is this easy-to-use site’s list of all registered farriers.

Thesite’s “Find a Farrier” service efficiently searches for your local registered practitioner.
