An association for accredited and unaccredited Farriers & Blacksmiths
It is important that all horses be shod by a competent tradesperson. A fully trained and competent farrier can detect problems in a horse's foot and alleviate them by correct shoeing. Farriers play a most important role in the horse world and, properly trained, are invaluable to the owner or trainer with the knowledge and skill they possess.
The AFBA promotes the profession and serves as a representative of farriery interests within the horse world. The AFBA actively monitors legislation and showing rules, and acts as an advocate of farriers in relations with veterinarians, breed and sport associations, and state and federal government agencies.
