Since its inception in 1971, the American Farrier’s Association has impacted the lives our member farriers, their family members, and the equines they care for.

Whether that’s through education, certification, competition, or lifelong friendships forged through the years, AFA programs and events have created a community – a family – that is second to none.

If you have a family member who was greatly impacted by the AFA and its mission during his/her lifetime, or you’ve recently lost an equine companion whose farrier contributed to his/her quality of life, consider gifting to the Foundation in his/her name. Our In Memoriam contributions will be recognized on our Memorial Page, as well as in Foundation reports and American Farrier’s Association publications.
