|Jim Linzy Fund|
Jim Linzy was a nationally known farrier from Pine Bluff, Ark. He was an early member and strong supporter of the AFA, president of the Southern Farriers Association, a member of the Anvil 21 Club, and a widely traveled and respected clinician, teacher, and shoer of gaited horses with few equals. Jim was murdered in 1990, and to honor his memory the AFA gives an annual award to an outstanding clinician who has been nominated by his or her peers.
Please contact the AFA Treasurer, Tim Byrne, CJF, if your chapter is interested in holding a Linzy clinic fundraiser.
