Crompton farriers was established in 2015 by Sam Crompton, the third generation of his family to train as a farrier.

The family tradition of farriery dates back to 1952 when Sam's grandfather, Esmor Crompton started practicing. His son Steve continued the business and built a strong reputation, training a number of apprentices. Today, Sam runs his own successful business.

Having graduated from University with a B.A. (Hons) in Product Design and Digital modelling, Sam decided to train as a farrier alongside his dad. He qualified in 2014, passing the examinations set by the Worshipful Company of Farriers. Crompton Farriers continues to thrive with a loyal client base on the Wirral and across Cheshire. 

The importance of Sam's work is reflected in his commitment to learning. He completed the Diploma of Higher Education in Farriery and was awarded the Myerscough College Challenge Cup for achieving the highest practical grades over two years. Following this Sam went on to complete a BSc (Hons) Farriery degree graduating with first class honours. These extra qualifications have given him the ability to carry out more advanced work, with science based evidence to formulate shoeing plans.

Sam also works successfully alongside a number of veterinary practices, hospitals and equine professionals and is dedicated to providing the best possible care, to suit the individual needs of each horse. His knowledge and experience provides clients with the reassurance, that they are receiving the highest level of service.
