Master Farrier

John Pittard
Master Farrier

After completing a five year farriering apprenticeship in Victoria, John Pittard spent 2 years working in England. First shoeing both stud and race horses at Newmarket and then as the sole consulting farrier at the Newmarket Equine Research Centre where he worked in conjunction with veterinarians dealing with corrective shoeing techniques and therapeutic shoeing for horses with leg and hoof problems.

John then spent a further 8 years overseas developing farriers for the Jakarta Racing Management and Jockey Club of Pakistan before returning in 1978 to his own business in Australia. He has worked on winners of the Caulfield Cup, Golden Slipper and AJC Derby and both the Grand National and Great Eastern Steeplechase. John's own apprentices have themselves become some of Austrlia's leading farriers.

Over the last 25 years John Pittard has developed techniques of lateral and medial extensions and elevation for correcting deviations in the legs of foals. In 1991 he was employed by Arrowfield Stud (Scone, NSW) to oversee the development of foals and he was able to fully explore his speciality of problem leg deviations in foals. During this time Arrowfield produced the top selling yearling at the Sydney Easter Sales (Australia's premier sale) on four occasions.

John employs a team of farriers and he continues to be hands on with his speciality of correcting problems be it foals, weanlings, yearlings, race horses, mares or stallions.
