Hello and Welcome, My name is Alex and I am a registered and qualified English farrier working in Newmarket England. I am currently working towards my BSC Farriery (Honours) qualification and whilst doing so I decided to create 'eFarriery Education', I realised there was a lack of quality online content designed specifically to help farriers progress within the industry. I hope you enjoy these courses and look forward to hearing your feedback in the comment sections. If you have any queries or questions I'm here to help so pop me over an email and ill get back to you as soon as I can.
