Hoof-fitting blacksmith/hoof-fitting blacksmith recognition

If you want to work as a hoof-fitting smith or hoof-fitting smith, you need state recognition. Examination certificates in the field of hoof and claw fittings acquired outside Germany may be treated on an equal footing in accordance with the Hufbeschl-AnerkennV (HufBeschl-AnerkennV). This Regulation also regulates the procedure for State recognition for persons with equivalent certificates.
