About the AFA

With members across the United States and in several countries, the AFA exists to further the professional development of farriers, to provide leadership and resources for the benefit of the farrier industry, and to improve the welfare of the horse through continuing farrier education.

Five Tenets

The AFA centers upon five foundational tenets which reinforce our mission and drive all of our efforts and programs: Education, Certification, Communication, Research, and Innovation. These five timeless tenets provide the basis for all AFA programs and serve as the focal points of the AFA, past and present.
