The Farrier is a pictorial journey across the equine world, recording farriers at work on six continents. Here the variety of horse types, their diverse environs, and the farrier’s range of activities, is seen through the craftsman’s eye. Simon captures the essence of the farrier’s world using his unequalled opportunities to photograph over 60 farriers.

Simon has been a farrier since he was 16 years old and has lectured and demonstrated farriery in more than30 countries on 6 continents, including the USA, Australia, Singapore, Iceland and Brazil. He has previously published four text books on farriery and has been published in numerous journals and equine magazines.

Simon is the only farrier awarded an Honorary Associate by the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons. He is a Fellow of the Worshipful Company of Farriers by examination (FRCF). In 2017 he gained a Doctoral degree in equine biomechanics and physiology. He was awarded an Honorary Fellowship of Myerscough College in July 2017 and in 2018 the Sir Colin Spedding Award by the National Equine Forum.
