Gavin Cromwell is a trainer with a difference. A farrier by trade he has shod Gold Cup and Grand National winning horses along with an Olympic Gold Medalist. He took out a Training licence in 2005. His farrier skills are a passion and a trade that he is still very much in demand for by some of the biggest operations in the sport.
Gavin started, like many, as a stable lad with ambition and drive. Experience gained abroad in Australia and at home with the likes of the late and great Dessie Hughes have stood to him when striving for excellence and that shows in his operation with the results he has achieved.
Ever since Arresting landed his first success on the track it’s been a wonderful journey with high profile winners under both codes of flat and jumps racing.
Since starting out, his operation has grown significantly and continues to rise through the ranks with a superb team in place at the yard in Danestown, Balrath, Co Meath.
