Appointments can be made by telephone or text between the hours of 7am-5pm, Monday-Friday.

We always try to keep to the allocated appointment slot that has been given, however, from time to time appointment slots may need to be adjusted. We will always advise clients of this, as soon as possible or you are welcome to call the mobile number for an arrival time

If a client cancels within 24 hours of their appointment, we reserve the right to charge a cancellation fee.

Work on horse’s feet may be done by any member of the Britten Farriery Ltd team, or subcontractor under our authority.

Safety is a priority for Britten Farriery Ltd. In the event that they feel it is unsafe to continue to shoe a horse, they reserve the right to stop working on a horse until it is safe to do so.

A safe working environment should be provided with hard standing, electric, water and shelter from the rain. Horses should be presented clean and dry where possible.



Invoices are due on receipt or on agreed terms

In the event that a client has an invoice outstanding, there will be no further visits, shoeing or trimming until the invoice has been cleared

Outstanding invoices may also be subject to a minimum £10 administration charge

There will be a annual price rise inline with inflation 



Lost shoes incur a fee

If a shoe is lost in less than 7 days will be free of charge 


In the event that a client wishes to raise a complaint. Please raise this directly with Stephen Britten, either by email or verbally and he will strive to resolve the issue as quickly as possible.


Horses need to be handled by the owner or appointed groom/other as Britten Farriery Ltd accepts no liability or responsibility for catching or moving horses to and from shoeing area.

Should the horse become impatient or dangerous someone (owner or appointed other) would be required to hold the horse whilst work is carried out/finished on the horse.
