What is a Farrier?


A farrier is a professional who shoes horses. This person also trims hooves and makes sure they are in the right conformation, balance, shape and length. Horses are on their feet most of the time, so it is vital to keep hooves healthy and prevent a horse from becoming lame.

In Lampang, we are fortunate to be able to work with skilled farriers who can provide hoof care to the local ponies and horses. We carry out regular farrier training to upgrade their skills and build more farriers so that the local community can sustain themselves without relying on external farriers.
