Honor Horseshoers During 21st Annual Farriers Week, July 7-13

Celebrate the contributions farriers make to the equine industry in Spotlight Farriers


American Farriers Journal would like to thank the many farriers who dedicate their time, effort and skill to the equine industry. This year marks the 21st annual Farriers Week, a time American Farriers Journal sets aside to celebrate your professional contributions — and invite others to do the same.

Also, stop by the American Farriers Journal Facebook page during Farriers Week to access a profile frame that shows your farrier pride.
