Gabrielle Hanson-Smith

"James has shod all three of my horses for a year having taken over from my excellent last farrier due to injury. I am really delighted  with the way all three of them are going.  He focuses on the needs of each individual, and his remedial shoeing of my Irish Draught, has had a wonderful effect on his way of going. He is comfortable and balanced in his feet, resulting in a transformed performance on the flat and over jumps, plus as his balance and way of going has opened up his movement he no longer pulls shoes off, which has been a problem.  My three horses have very different feet, and James addresses each one with care and thought. James is always prompt, flexible, extremely helpful in every way, calm in all circumstances (dealing with bolshy youngsters!) and the horses like and trust him. I have no hesitation in recommending him to anyone who wants a thoughtful farrier who is prepared to give time and understanding to each animal, and whose attention to detail results in happier and more comfortable horses who can therefore perform at their maximum"

Terri Anderson

"When my farrier of many years decided to take early retirement, I was at a loss as to who I could trust to shoe my string of show jumpers. James came highly recommended, he is very patient, calm, talented and conscientious young man. James is prepared to listen to your requirements, assess situations and carry out his work with compassion and skill. I have found him to be a very personable and happy soul, happy to have a chat but focused in his work. I too would thoroughly recommend James to be trusted to shoe your most precious of steeds"

Ellisha Townsend

"I would highly recommend James. He has always been fabulous with my horses all of whom are young and nervous. He is quiet, calm and very patient with them, always on time if not early! And does a great job, would recommend to anyone!"

Alice Pearson

(International Event Rider)

"A very professional, punctual, calm and talented farrier. James balances the foot very nicely, he is very dedicated to getting the feet into the best condition. We have horses that are pigeon toed, have navicular and TB's with flat feet and James deals with each one individually and they have all improved since he has started shoeing them"

Lucy & Derek Hopkins

"I've been lucky enough that James has shod my horses and the hunt horses at the North Hereford since Derek and I moved to the kennels. We couldn't be more thrilled with his work. He is gentle when handling the horses especially one that can be awkward. His time keeping and attention to detail is second to none. I would have no hesitation in recommending him to anyone".
