O. A. Curtis & Sons is a farriery business of long standing, in the centre of Newmarket.

We are based at The Forge, Moulton Road, but travel a wide distance to service our clients’ needs. We shoe all types and breeds of horses but naturally concentrate on Thoroughbred racehorses, both in training and at stud. We believe in providing the best possible service; anything less is never good enough for us.

He has lectured and demonstrated farriery in 19 countries on five continents including the USA, Australia, India, Russia, South Africa and Dubai. He has published three textbooks on farriery, as well as contributing numerous papers to professional journals. He is the first and only farrier to be made an Honorary Associate of the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons, the highest honour possible for the College to award to anyone who is not a veterinary surgeon.
