BFBA Focus – Pre-Farrier ‘Test of Skills’   iCal entry for this event

This is a new opportunity for students to meet potential ATFs; introduce themselves, demonstrate their skills and get noticed!

The ‘Test of Skills’ is intended to be a fun opportunity; a chance to demonstrate forging capabilities. Entrants will be required to make one ‘test piece’ which will be confirmed in advance on Friday 22nd October. This piece will be forged from a coke fire. All participants must bring their own tools and provide their own PPE. Times for the competition will be published on 27th October.

Entrants are warmly encouraged to bring test pieces with them plus copies of their CV to hand to potential employers. This is an opportunity to get a step ahead and meet many ATFs in one location.

Entry is £5 per person and will include access to Focus on both the Saturday and the Sunday. Enter online below – or call BFBA Head Office on 024 76 696595 by 22nd October 2021.

BFBA Focus can provide an unrivalled springboard to a career in farriery - visit the marketplace, listen to lectures and watch practical demonstrations. For more information visit the website at www.bfba.co.uk.


This competition is available to those seeking an apprenticeship in farriery only. Those with a current apprenticeship need not apply.

Location: BFBA Focus, Blackdown Halls, Stoneleigh Park CV8 2LG
