The Farriers Registration Council


The Farriers Registration Council (FRC) was established by the Farriers (Registration) Act 1975 as amended by the Farriers (Registration) Act 1977, to register persons engaged in farriery and the shoeing of horses, and to prohibit the shoeing of horses by unqualified persons.


It is a criminal offence for any person to shoe a horse (including their own) or otherwise engage in farriery in Great Britain whilst not registered on the Register of Farriers, and to do so may render that person liable to prosecution.


The Council is responsible for the annual registration of all farriers, and once registered each farrier receives confirmation by way of a registration card and car window sticker showing the current year. Copies of the full Register or a particular postcode area list of farriers are available from the Council offices or their website,
