Welcome to Ben Benson farriery; an established farriery business based in Swalcliffe, Oxfordshire. An Approved Training 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.
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.
Ben or a member of his team have shod Paddy for the seven and a half years that I have been fortunate to own him. During this time Ben has always been very helpful and accommodating with shoeing Paddy as he finds being shod a bit of a traumatic experience.
Ben has been shoeing my show and working hunter horses for 5 years , his professional skills as a farrier go beyond “nailing on shoes”. He stresses the importance of balancing the feet and improving the conformation, which to me is paramount. He is 100% reliable and another attribute is that Ben and his boys all have a sense of humour.
