THE FARRIERS REGISTRATION COUNCIL




The Farriers Registration Council was established by The Farriers (Registration) Act 1975 as amended by the Farriers (Registration) (Amendment) Act 1977 to register persons engaged in farriery and the shoeing of horses; and to prohibit the shoeing of horses by unqualified persons. It is a criminal offence for any person to shoe a horse (including their own) or otherwise engage in farriery in Great Britain (excluding the Highlands and Islands of Scotland), whilst not registered on the Register of Farriers and to do so may render that person liable to prosecution, the conviction of which carries a fine of up to 1000. The Council is responsible for the annual registration of all farriers, and once registered each farrier receives confirmation by way of a badge showing the current year. Both the full Register and a breakdown by postcode are published.

The Registration Committee considers all applications from persons wishing to become Registered Farriers. The Investigating Committee carries out preliminary investigations of disciplinary cases, and the Disciplinary Committee considers such cases and may, if it thinks fit, direct that a person's name be removed from the Register, or that his/her registration be suspended.

THE FARRIERY TRAINING SERVICE




The Farriery Training Service is a managing agency established by the council to oversee the training of Farriery Apprentices in Great Britain. All apprentices must complete the full four-year course with an Approved Training Farrier and take the Diploma Examination in the last year. The service does, however, welcome applications from Approved Training Farriers and Apprentices worldwide. Among other responsibilities are the administration of the Terms and Conditions set by the Council for the training of Farriery Apprentices, obtaining funding for such apprenticeships and discharging responsibilities set by funding agencies. The Service also acts as arbiter for all matters relating to the training of farrier's apprentices.

THE WORSHIPFUL COMPANY OF FARRIERS




The Worshipful Company of Farriers is a City Livery Company, which has its origins in 1356, when it was established as a fellowship to oversee farriery within the Cities of London and Westminster. Six and half centuries later the company still has the responsibility for securing adequate standards of competence and conduct among persons engaged in the shoeing of horses. The company also actively promotes and encourages the art, science, training and education of farriery.

The company promoted the Farriers (Registration) Act 1975, which was later amended in 1977. The company has for more than 100 years been the examining body for farriery. Its professional examinations are administered by an Examinations Board comprising of practicing farriers who have achieved the company's fellowship qualification and equine veterinary surgeons. The Examinations Board is an entirely independent body within the craft and is responsible only to the Court of the Company.

THE NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF FARRIERS, BLACKSMITHS AND AGRICULTURAL ENGINEERS




The National Association was formed in 1905 for the future well-being of the trade, in order to protect and develop the interests of its members, encouraging improved standards of workmanship, thus being beneficial to all tradesmen, their employees and customers. The Association represents the farrier and blacksmith, provides a service to its members with free legal advice through their solicitors, and the benefits of a comprehensive range of insurance cover, designed especially for its members at discount rates.

Education is encouraged by shoeing and shoemaking courses for both qualified farriers and apprentices, seminars, demonstrations, trade fairs and lectures for all members. The Association also awards certificates, medals, books and money prizes for competitions organised and run by its members at various venues across the country. This not only stimulates public interest but also serves to further the education and skills of those who participate. On a bi-annual basis the Association, together with the Worshipful Company of Farriers, arranges an international Exchange Programme with the USA and Europe.

A comprehensive range of all farriery and blacksmithing books is available for purchase from Head Office along with Health & Safety posters and sundry items. Forge, a bi-monthly trade magazine with farriery and blacksmithing articles and Association news, ensures members are always up to date with the latest information.

The Association aims to bring together farriers, veterinary surgeons, horse owners and horse related organisations at special events, such as lectures, seminars and meetings, providing information and a wider understanding thus forming a good base for working relationships.
