Beaufort Cottage Farrier Travel Scholarship

Beaufort Cottage Educational Trust in conjunction with Simon Curtis would like to offer newly graduated, UK based farriers a unique opportunity to spend 4-6 weeks with Aaron Gygax in Brittnau, Switzerland.

This large progressive specialist farriery also works closely with the neighbouring equine clinic. The successful candidate will gain invaluable experience in all aspects of remedial farriery in both TB and Sport-horses. We envisage this to be an excellent opportunity for farriers intending to take apprentice examinations and priority will be given to those farriers who have applied to sit these exams, but any farrier with at least two years post graduate experience will be eligible to apply.

The scholarship will cover reasonable travel expenses and a living wage for the 4-6 week placement, accommodation will be provided on site.

Farriers wanting to apply should do so by emailing a copy of their CV, along with a covering letter and a letter of recommendation from a mentor. Applicants will then be invited to an interview either in person or via Zoom before a successful candidate is selected.

All applications and further enquires please contact the Beaufort Cottage Educational Trust

Application deadline 15 August 2024.
