Welcome to Ben Benson farriery; an established farriery business based in Swalcliffe, Oxfordshire. An Approved Master Farrier, he has worked in the farriery industry for over 15 years.

  • The great thing about Ben Benson is that he is more than just our Farrier. He is part of our Team. He cares about the horses, their ambitions and results. His attention to detail and constant progress assessments go that little bit further to help us stay ahead of the game.

  • Ben has been shoeing for me for the past 10 years, I consider him a valuable member of the team. He is a great communicator and always makes the time to discuss the horses with myself and yard manager Kelly.

  • We have been using Ben as a Farrier for the past 8 years. Ben has a high level of knowledge and ability. He is not only technically very good but also has a great affinity with the horses. He is open to discussions about our horses feet with not only ourselves but also our vets.

    Gareth Hughes – International Dressage Rider

  • We have used Ben as our yard farrier for the last 11yrs. He is always reliable and trustworthy. I have complete confidence that Ben will pick up on any foot issues long before it becomes a serious concern. Ben takes a great interest in each horses individual foot and health requirements which is very important on a large busy yard such as Emile’s.

  • I have to say I was truly impressed with the compassion that Ben showed for my 26yrs old x SHP Twiggie.
    He was truly amazing and I can’t thank him enough for taking her on. Thank you for all your help …

  • Cannot rate Ben highly enough! Would give 10 stars if I could!! Before Ben started shoeing my horse she had awful flat feet with sunken heels and she went lame. He has worked closely with the vet to bring her sound and keep her sound and she now feels better than ever! The care that goes into his work is phenomenal – he really takes his time and does his very best for each individual horse. I know that I can pick the phone up and he’ll always be happy to offer great advice if I need it. I really am so grateful for everything he has done for me and my horse!
