B & W Equine Vets
" I have worked with Brush Farriery for several years now, particularly on remedial cases. I feel confident when I recommend my clients use Brush Farriery they will receive a reliable and professional service. Working together we've had great results with some very tricky cases. I can also recommend Brush Farriery on a personal level as they look after my own horse, who receives top quality care from the whole team. "

" Phil (and Brush Farriery Services) has been my farrier for 10 years. I have always found him to be immensely reliable, professional and conscientious and his work is of an exceptionally high standard. Phil and his apprentices are always quiet and calm around my horses. Phil cares for his equine clients with dedication and empathy. He has used his vast experience and remedial skills to keep all my horses sound and myself happy in the knowledge that he is doing his very best for us. Phil is quiet and measured in his work, approachable and easy to contact - he always returns calls - and he happily works in conjunction with my vet. Phil and his team do a fantastic job and I would highly recommend them "

CLAIRE DYSON RACING
" I have worked along side Phil at Claire Dyson Racing for 4 years.Phil is an extremely conscientious farrier. He cares greatly about the results of his shoeing. He is very attentive and will raise any minor concerns he has with the horses feet before they become an issue and since he has shod here we have had much fewer shoeing related issues. He appreciates corrective farriery cases with an open mind and is willing to listen to other opinions but also put forward his own suggestions making for a great working relationship with me as the yard vet. All in all an invaluable member of the team here at Claire Dyson Racing. "

" Brush Farriery Services Ltd have been looking after our horses foot care since 2005. They are a brilliant team who have dealt with the most challenging of horses over the years in a professional,calm manner. A lot of the horses that arrive at the centre have never seen a farrier and have poor foot conformation and large overgrowths. Phil and his team have a sympathetic approach which is backed up with the knowledge needed for dealing with all aspects of foot care.We are always confident that our horses receive the best possible foot care.

COTSWOLD HORSE AND HOUND PHYSIOTHERAPY
" I have worked with Phil for a few years now and have consistently been impressed with the quality and passion for his work. My horses are far from straight forward, thin soled, sensitive thoroughbreds, but he has always done what is best for them and nothing is too much trouble. Their feet look fantastic, he is always open to discuss options and his findings. Being an animal physiotherapist, I am more than aware of the importance of correct foot balance and the effects poor feet have on the whole horse, it can easily become performance limiting. This is something Phil takes great care with and as we share many mutual clients, it is a relief to know we can discuss cases and combine our skills to improve the health and wellbeing of the horse.I highly recommend Phil to my clients and friends. His is kind, patient and intuitive with my horses and despite me consistently forgetting to provide tea and coffee, him and his team arrive with a smile on their faces and on time!!! "

" I have been using Phil (Team Brush) as my farrier for at least 7 years now, during this time Phil has always been reliable (turns up on time, if not earlier) and he will call/text if there are any changes or issues he might have found if i am not at the yard. I therefore trust him unreservedly and have full confidence in the manner in which he and his team will be shoeing my horses in my absence. Phil is very knowledgable and unwavering on the necessity of balancing the horse's feet to the best of that horse's confirmation. He seems to have a very good rapport with his team as they always seem to be very happy, polite and keen to learn. I would recommend team Brush any day. "
