We are delighted that you have decided to become a member of AFA. Our membership numbers have been steadily on the rise, and for good reasons.

  • The last few annual conventions, in Arlington, TX (2017), Reno, NV (2018), Tulsa, OK (2019), and Chattanooga, TN (2020), 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 across the US and around the world.
  • Our Chapters are regularly offering clinics with some of the best farriers in the industry.
  • The availability of Pre-Certification workshops is steadily growing, and the number of opportunities for Certification testing is steadily increasing.
  • Our bi-weekly email e-blasts are informational and educational.

It’s a good time to be a farrier, and an even better time to be a member of the AFA!

Note: A copy of the AFA Certification Study Guide is included with New Regular and Student Memberships.
