Ben is one of only 370 Approved Training Farrier (ATF) in the country. At present he has two apprentices.
Having apprentice farriers is important for a number of reasons. From a clients perspective it helps ensure a premium service, providing a higher level of cover, and allowing work to be carried out more efficiently in the yard – which is particularly useful when looking after bigger yards.
In addition training continues to push the whole team to work better. Training is also a useful way to increase knowledge. Having a larger team also provides more time for all the members to go on courses to continue their professional development – whether an apprentice or qualified farrier.
For the apprentice themselves it teaches them a trade that will support them for life, learning skills varying from working as part of a team, dealing with clients, and learning a skill.
If you are interested in becoming an apprentice with us, please email your CV and covering letter to [email protected] or call Ben for more information.

An exciting opportunity has arisen at BT Benson Farrier’s . We are now actively looking to take on a qualified farrier.

Must be a good communicator and able to assist in day to day running of business and must be able to work well within a team environment and individually.

We believe that it is important to continue gaining knowledge. For this reason we, as a team attend a number of Equine Practitioners Seminars through out the year. In addition Ben frequently gives lectures and seminars.
The apprentices are also encouraged to do this. Ben attains well above the recommended number of CPD’S points per annum and ensures he always remains up to date with any new developments.
