  Farriers competition (Ireland)


   Jay Tovey FWCF



Having over 20 years experience as a farrier in Bedfordshire has allowed me to shoe a diverse variety of horses and ponies across Beds, Herts,  Bucks and Cambs. I was trained by one of the most respected farriers in Bedfordshire, Tom Ryan Fwcf (www.equinehoof.co.uk). I have gone on to work alongside some of the best farriers in the world and over the years have dealt with many shoeing problems from foal limb alignment to re-establishing balance in competition and riding horses. I tackle lameness issues daily, including laminitis and am proud to work alongside all veterinary  practices in the area. 

Aside from the day to day working I have been dedicated to farriery competitions since an Apprentice and regularly compete all over the country at county shows and travel abroad to international shows including the Calgary Stampede in Canada. I believe competitions keep you sharp and up to date with all the latest developments in the farriery world, which ultimately benefits my clients. 

I passed the fellowship exam in 2017, which is the highest achievement that a farrier can obtain, only 55 people in the world have achieved it. I am also delighted to have been appointed as a Farriery examiner and judge by The Worshipful Company of Farriers which again, takes me all over the country judging farrier competitions and Best Shod Horse classes for numerous showing classes and have recently had the privilege of judging at Burleigh Horse Trials.
