The Worshipful Company of Farriers
Promoting the welfare of the horse since 1356


Upper Warden, David Buckton

I am one of those privileged people who have been lucky enough to combine work with pleasure, from running a livery yard followed by 30 years as an equestrian insurance broker. When not in the office I could usually be found on a horse, preferably hunting.


Middle Warden, Steven Wilson

Working in economic development, and with Higher Education and Industry, I have experience at director level in both public and private sectors. I led the British Prime Minister's Initiative for Vocational Training in Russia for some years, and have served on the Livery Companies Skills Council and the City & Guilds of London Institute. 

I am the proud son of a fine Highland farrier and crofter, the late Bill Wilson, of Lochaber Forge, Torlundy, Fort William, Inverness-shire. My late father also bred Highland and Exmoor ponies and my brother Iain now keeps a large flock of Blackface Sheep at Inverguiseran Farm on the Knoydart peninsula, Scotland's last wilderness. I have always ridden and am a keen supporter of the Suffolk Punch Trust, having moved from glen to fen to live in exile in a village near Cambridge almost a decade ago.
Renter Warden, John Wilsher

I am the grandson of a Sergeant  Farrier of The Suffolk Yeomanry WW1, who also owned his own Forge in Grantchester, Cambridge.  I have spent my working life in the Motor Industry and have a small country garage, dealing with ‘horseless carriages’!
