2015 Mail-In Forging Exercise

Heart Bar Horseshoe

Response to the final Calgary Mail-In Forging Exercise was so tremendous, it would be a shame to see it go away because of the Calgary Stampede’s decision to abandon a forging contest. Although Calgary may be gone, there is good news because a new mail-in forging contest will take its place. Sponsored by Victory Racing Plate, this contest will be tied to the International Hoof-Care Summit. People who can’t make it to the Summit still can participate in the forging exercise by mailing in their entry.
