Smarter skills, better horses

Werkman Hoofcare understands and meets the contemporary high expectations of farriers. Our product line consists of quality products finished in detail, which you, the farrier, will elevate the vitality of the hoof to a higher level in order to enhance the performance of the horse. Here's why:

Strong as steel and rich in tradition

Werkman Hoofcare established in Groningen, was formed in 1909. The founders, the brothers Hero and Berend Werkman, both farriers themselves, strived to provide their customers with excellent service in addition to top-quality horseshoes. In the past century, Werkman Hoofcare has exported many different models to countries all over the world. Today, the fourth Werkman generation has the reins of the company; Christel Werkman and her brother Reian Werkman.

Skilled focus on improving farriery

The focus is still on the customers and on product quality, yet, so much has changed. Nowadays and in response to the contemporary quality requirements imposed on horseshoes, there are continuously innovative developments. Werkman Hoofcare is, more than ever, focusing on improving farriery. Our horseshoes are continuously being refined, improved, and adapted to contemporary market requirements. In this manner, we can continue to supply our customers with high-quality horseshoes.

Collaboration is the key

As a customer-oriented organization, we value a good relationship with you, the farrier. The reliability of our organization and our employees play a crucial role in that regard.
