and we are delighted that you have decided to become a member. Our membership numbers have been steadily on the rise, and for good reasons. The last three annual conventions – in Reno, NV in 2014, Overland Park, KS in 2015, and Mobile, AL in 2016 have drawn enthusiastic attendees who have praised the quality of the lectures, demos, hands-on, and industry specific shopping opportunities. Our annual National Forging and Horseshoeing Competition which is held each year during convention is drawing competitors from around the US and abroad.

Our Chapters are regularly offering clinics with some of the best farriers in the industry. The availability of pre-Certification workshops is growing, and the number of opportunities for Certification testing is steadily increasing. Our weekly email e-blasts inform members of an array of events on the calendar, as well as reporting on the events that have taken place. It’s a good time to be a farrier, and an even better time to be a member of the AFA.
