Sion Davies Farrier Services
Don’t miss Sion Davies and his team of professional farriers in action.
A well shod horse is the result of co-operation between the horse owner the farrier… and the horse. The farrier brings to the job the skill and knowledge acquired through a lengthy apprenticeship, intensive college and training and a continuing accumulation of experience.
The horse will be better able to co-operate if used to handling, so that it will stand quietly whilst the feet are picked up, trimmed and/or shod. Proper feeding and continuing foot care picking out the feet helps build strong horn which makes good farriery easier.
Sion and his team will be located on the 2nd Avenue next to the Horse Pen.
