Hufbeschlagschmidin/Hufbeschlagschmied Recognition

Anyone who wants to work as a hoof shoesmith or hoof shoesmith needs state recognition.

Examination certificates acquired outside Germany in the field of hoof and claw fittings can be treated in the same way in accordance with the Hufbeschlag-Anerkennungsverordnung (HufBeschl-AnerkennV). This ordinance also regulates the procedure of state recognition for persons with equivalent certificates.
