The Board of Directors of the American Farrier’s Association [AFA] is pleased to announce that our 50th Anniversary Convention has been moved to Arlington, Texas, November 8-12, 2021.
While we are disappointed to not be returning to Albuquerque, New Mexico for this special event, the move was necessitated due to restrictions in planning a large-scale event there at this time.
The AFA Annual Convention is the only nationwide event of its kind and scale, bringing together farriers, veterinarians, suppliers, horse owners and students for four days of education, competition, certification, hands-on learning and networking. The Farrier Industry Association also hosts a robust MarketPlace throughout the week that includes many of the top suppliers and manufacturers in the equine industry.
The AFA would like to thank the teams in both Albuquerque and Arlington for working through the challenges of this move with us, and we look forward to welcoming everyone to the great state of Texas in November!
Representing professional farriers, veterinarians, suppliers and horse owners, the American Farrier’s Association is the oldest and largest membership organization for the farrier industry in North America, and the only one with internationally recognized standards of competency through our certification programs. Setting the standard for excellence in hoof care, the AFA provides professional development, certification, leadership and resources for the benefit of the farrier industry and the welfare of the horse.
