Simon Moore FWCF 

Simon was born into a circus family in 1971, where his father was a lion tamer. Deciding not to follow his father’s career, he started his farriery apprenticeship with Paul Atkins RSS in 1989 and passed the Diploma of the Worshipful Company of Farriers (Dip WCF) in 1993. After finishing his apprenticeship, he set up business in Essex where he primarily shod sports horses, with a particular interest in shoeing showjumpers. 

During this time Simon met his future wife Ruth and they married in 1996 and have four children. In 1998 they relocated to Cornwall for ‘a slower pace of life’ but farriery soon took centre stage. In 2003 he established Cornwall’s first farriery practice Equine Foot Care, in partnership with Paul Martin Dip WCF, concentrating mainly on training apprentices. During this time, he was directly responsible for training 6 apprentices, of which four have successfully passed the AWCF exam, one of those being his son Callum – an achievement he is particularly proud of. 


In 2011 he passed the Associate of the Worshipful Company of Farriers (AWCF) and then passed the Fellowship of the Worshipful Company of Farriers (FWCF) in 2016. He was appointed to the Worshipful company of Farriers examination board in 2016 and continues to be an active member.  

He is a proud father and grandfather and spends his leisure time with his family or cycling the Cornish countryside. He is regular tutor and clinician.
