New item! We are now carrying a suede leather apron made by Nordic Forge. This apron features a truly great design that goes back many years in the farrier trade, with improvements added in recent years: a sturdier belt, heavier leather reinforcements, and a slightly different cut that renders the design adaptable to most women as well as men. If you’re going to do hoof work, then you want a good apron to protect yourself. This one does the job, and does it well.
We would consider a quality apron to be an essential purchase for any serious trimmer -- even seasoned professionals can slip with a sharp knife or rasp.
Please note the apron dimensions listed below. This is a full coverage loose-fit apron which may not suit men or women under 5 ft 4inches, particularly those of a more petite stature.

Same apron style -- 2 different eras:
the one on the left is brand new, the one on the right has a few miles and about 20 years on it, but still going strong! (Please note, the light grey apron below is our previous apron-- our new Nordic Forge apron is the same style but a more pliable leather in a warm brown color)
