Monday 11 March 2019
Event: 13.00 - 14.00
Venue: LMA Presentation Room, Gallery 4, Lloyd's, London EC3M 7DQ


Anyone with an interest in equine insurance/equine care, including underwriting, claims, brokers/coverholders and loss adjusters.


The LMA’s Bloodstock and Livestock Committee would like to invite you to a briefing session delivered by Matt Fawcett Dip WCF (Hons), Farrier Consultant, offering Bio-Mech Farrier Services and Consultancy.

The session will cover the following:

  • the subject of farriery and its importance and relevance within bloodstock and equine insurance
  • how money can be saved on claims with careful investigation and changes to shoeing
  • basic anatomy, common problems and methods of shoeing
  • two short case studies
  • an opportunity to ask questions.

Matt currently runs his my own farriery business and since 2016 has run his farrier consultancy business to the London markets and now also provides loss adjusting services to insurers.


“Having grown up with horses and my father being a jockey I was always destined for a career in equine. In 2000 joined the British Army as a farrier where I was to become the last ever Royal Army veterinary Corps farrier. I spent 8 years based in Melton Mowbray and Hyde park, initially learning the trade and later on as an instructor of farriery and lecturer at Nottingham University. After leaving the Army I went on to set up my own farrier business and still run this to this day providing farrier services to a multitude of different clients and specialising in remedial and orthopaedic farriery and aiding and solving low level lameness.

In 2016 I began consulting to the Lloyd’s syndicates and in turn have saved them considerable amounts on high value claims where shoeing is either the primary or secondary cause of injury. I have a broad knowledge of equine and veterinary science and still have a passion for riding as well as a keen interest in bloodstock.”
