All senior farriers are qualified under the diploma awarded by the Worshipful Company of Farriers at the end of a 4 year apprenticeship. Gary Pickford has been an ATF - an approved training farrier - for 30 years and has trained 50 farriers during that time, many of whom remain with the company or work with us as subcontractors and consultants. Others have gone on to have their own successful businesses.
We have a valuable apprentice scheme offering trainees the chance to go to the Farriers Training Colleges here in the UK, to achieve their goal of becoming professional farriers. Our company prides itself on being one of only a few in this country offering the type of opportunities for a trainee to reach a very high standard of farriery, which can result in an extremely lucrative and rewarding career.
Chapel Forge Farriers also works closely with other equine organisations such as Saracen Feeds and their equine nutritionist Polly Bonner, Valley Equine Veterinary Group, O'Gormans Veterinary Practice, Wessex Equine, bloodstock agents such as Charlie Gordon Watson, and vetinerary surgeons such as Jessica Kidd.
