INTRODUCTION

Allpass Farriers was established in 2008, it’s owned and run by myself, Morten Allpass and provides a reliable, conscientious and professional service.


ABOUT ME

I was born in Denmark in 1981 in a small town just North of Copenhagen. I grew up around horses and started riding when I was 5 years old. By the time I was 10 years old, my mum had started breeding Icelandic horses professionally and set up her own stud farm and livery yard and I was heavily involved with the day to day work in the yard.

In 2001 I travelled to Australia where I worked on some of the biggest cattle stations out in the Northern Territory and Western Australia. All the work with the cattle was done on horseback and it gave me a great insight into the problems and conditions of the working horse.

It was in Australia that I came to the decision that I wanted to become a farrier. I have always enjoyed using my hands and mind together, and in the skill and knowledge one gains with being a farrier I certainly have the benefit of using both.

Upon my return home to Denmark from Australia, I was very fortunate to be accepted for an apprenticeship with one of Denmark’s best farriers. Within our regular client base were some of the country’s top dressage and show jumping horses plus many large racing yards. My time as an apprentice was varied and diverse and my approved training farrier was extremely dedicated in constantly striving to enhance our skill set and education by attending regular seminar’s, courses and equine conventions. I completed my 4 year apprenticeship with flying colours in 2007.

In spring 2007 I moved to the UK to be with my English wife and to add to my internationally recognised qualifications I also completed the Dip WCF examination at Warwickshire College. To further my knowledge and experience I spent time working with 2 different farriers in the West Sussex and Surrey areas before establishing my own company ‘Allpass Farriers’ in 2008.

AREA COVERED

I cover most of Surrey and around the Kent and West Sussex borders, which is approximately a 30 mile Radius from Redhill in Surrey. Enlarge this map in a new window.




ETHICS

I believe that all horses should be given the same high standard of care and quality of workmanship. As a farrier I deal with a broad spectrum of horses, anything from rescue horses with severely neglected feet to the top performing equine. In each individual case I will always endeavour to ensure that the best possible solution for the horse is achieved. In many cases where the horse has a foot or limb condition, I work closely alongside veterinarians to resolve the issue.

In my work I use various modern techniques and materials and pride myself in keeping up to date with the latest developments and to always strive to continue my professional qualifications and knowledge.



Whether you have a single horse or a big yard, I always offer the same high level of service. My clients are extremely important to me and I’m always happy to discuss the individual needs and requirements for your horse(s).
