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.

Since Jim’s interest was in farrier education at home and abroad and in helping people who needed a helping hand, the AFA created the Jim Linzy Fund to carry on his work. The money raised in his name is used to fund clinics and programs to help sick or injured AFA members and in support of the Jim Linzy Memorial Lecture at the annual convention.

Please contact the AFA Membership Chairman, Steve Eastman, CJF, if your chapter is interested in holding a Linzy clinic fundraiser.
