Apply for recognition as a farrier's apprentice farrier

Service Description

In Germany, farriery and hoof trimming may only be practised by certified and state-approved farriers. This does not apply to the practice of farriery by employees or apprentices who are subject to social insurance contributions, insofar as they work under the supervision of farriers. This also excludes veterinary work and work that merely involves the usual day-to-day cleaning and care of hooves and claws.

Farriery includes all work on a hoof for the purpose of protection, health maintenance, correction or treatment. Hoof trimming includes all the work involved in fitting, repairing or removing a shoe on an animal's hoof if this animal is to be used as a draught, pack or riding animal.

Specialist training at farriery schools may only be carried out by certified and state-recognized farriery instructors.

Examination certificates in the field of farriery and horseshoeing obtained outside of Germany can be equated in accordance with the Farriery Recognition Ordinance. This ordinance also regulates the procedure for state recognition for persons with equivalent examination certificates.
