Work

The majority of Registered Farriers will spend a significant proportion of their time in work, often including early mornings and working weekends. It is therefore important that Farriers are happy in their chosen path of employment and that any concerns or problems are resolved quickly.

  • If you are concerned about your registration or professional responsibilities please contact the offices of the FRC at frc@farrier-reg.gov.uk or T) 01733 319911 where someone will be happy to discuss your concerns.
