My name is Mel Pannewitz (Melanie if I’m in trouble!!). I have a fantastic base of customers at present that I have got to know well over the years and have become friends with many. I am looking to expand my business and would like to focus on the smaller horses, ponies and donkeys. I prefer horses under 16.2hh depending on their build.

This job is not just about strength, it is about working with the animal but faced with an 18.2hh shire horse I know there would be a more appropriately sized farrier than me!! On the other side of that I absolutely love the Shetlands and miniature ponies that a lot of farriers dread.

A good portion of my work is trimming which I really enjoy and take as much pride in as I do with my shoeing. I am just as happy to do a single trim as I am to do multiples. I attend Continued Professional Development (CPD) courses where possible as I believe you never finish learning and it is a great way to keep up to date with the new products available and developments in the industry.

I have a great network of people I can call on for help or advise where needed including vets, other farriers, physios, behaviourists and many equine professionals. My customers can expect me to turn up on time for appointments, always work to the very best of my ability and treat them and their animals with respect and confidentiality.
