Changes are coming for how American Farriers Team members are selected.
The American Farriers Team Committee announced that spots on the American Farriers Team will be earned through a series of three competitions.
The first two will be team trials conducted in May and September. The final competition will take place at November’s American Farrier’s Association National Forging & Horseshoeing Competition. Points will be accumulated at each of the three events.
The shoe list will be released when registration opens on Jan. 18. Registration for earning a spot on the team is open to the first 30 registrants. Those who register after the spots are filled will be added to a wait list. Specimen shoes will be released to all competitors after registration closes. Competition rules will also be distributed at that time.
Those earning a spot on the team will serve a 1 year commitment, rather than the traditional 2.
