Sam joined the team at the end of 2013, officially starting his apprenticeship January 2014. Sam has completed a year long course at Warwickshire College known as the Farrier Access Course. This teaches forging techniques, equine anatomy and farrier knowledge to prepare students for the apprenticeship. Sam undertook his first college attendance at Warwickshire as an official apprentice in February of 2014. He is a keen rider and has grown up around horses.
In the course of his apprenticeship Sam has been highly placed in many national farrier competitions, and is proving to be a very good shoe maker. His work on the horse is equally highly commended and he takes great pride in his work.
