Smoking Steel Shoe Co was founded by Gavin Halls Dip WCF on the belief that all horses deserve the best quality care and attention.

I have been providing farrier services since becoming qualified in 2001.

I served my apprenticeship under the guidance of my ATF (Approved Training Farrier), John Goode AWCF, one of Newmarket's leading farriers at the time and former farrier to Shergar. His team comprised of five other experienced farriers who worked at champion trainer, Sir Michael Stoute’s, yard in Newmarket. 

 As a team we regularly won the Victory Racing Plates Cup, for shoeing the most Group 1 winners in the UK annually.

Spending my apprenticeship gaining knowledge from some of the best vet's, farriers and trainers in the equine industry gave me the experience, knowledge and confidence to handle any farrier job.



Smoking Steel Shoe Co offers the highest quality farrier services for your horse. Our experience ranges from international shoeing for the Royal Family in Bahrain to rural shoeing in New Zealand. On top of that, we also collaborate with vets to ensure the hoof health of every horse we work with. We are confident in every aspect of farriery, from trims to shoes to remedial work. You can be assured to receive a punctual, friendly and calm natured service from our farriers.

We treat every horse with the same attention to detail, Shetland to Shire.
