Farrier Spotlight Returning This Summer

We’re looking for more pictures and stories of our favorite hard workers for the 15th annual National Farriers Week

Farriers work hard year-round to provide quality hoof care for horses worldwide. Although we hope appreciation is shown all year long, each year we set aside a week dedicated to honoring your work. The 2013 National Farriers Week, sponsored by American Farriers Journal, will take place from July 7-13.

In its 15th consecutive year, National Farriers Week is a time for horse owners, trainers, grooms, veterinarians and others in the equine community to say “thanks” for all of the terrific work farriers do.

Recognizing Dedication

It’s no accident National Farriers Week occurs during the second week of July each year. While your hard work and persistence is a year-round commitment, we want to take a week out of the busiest season for most farriers to show you just how appreciated you truly are.

“Being a farrier goes far beyond normal hoof care,” says Frank Lessiter, Editor/Publisher of American Farriers Journal. “We want to remind the equine community that farriers do so much more than normal trimmings and shoeing, all while sacrificing their bodies and often in less than ideal circumstances.”

Farrier Spotlight

American Farriers Journal is bringing back last year’s popular “Farrier Spotlight.” From now until July 1, you can encourage horse owners, grooms, trainers, etc., to submit pictures and videos of their farrier working with horses, and share why they appreciate their farrier. Additionally, they can share a story about their farrier.


We received hundreds of “Farrier Spotlight” photos last year. Pictured above are Cade Walker…
