New Summit “Sounding Board” Members

American Farriers Journal welcomes 11 industry leaders to the International Hoof-Care Summit Advisory Board

Much of the success the International Hoof-Care Summit has enjoyed is due to the American Farriers Journal staff listening closely to the wants and needs of those of you involved in professional hoof care. Starting with the first Summit in 2004, we’ve always believed there is nobody in a better position to help plan the program and activities than folks working daily on the equine foot.

The Summit and AFJ each have separate panels of hoof-care professionals who serve as a “sounding board.” These industry leaders help us by suggesting and offering their thoughts on topics, speakers, format adjustments and much more.

Members of the AFJ Editorial Advisory Board were listed in the March issue (Pages 8 and 9).

Board Members

The Summit Advisory Board includes four farriers, two equine veterinarians, four suppliers and one horseshoeing school director. These 11 members represent several aspects of the hoof-care profession and a number have been speakers at previous Summits and have also authored AFJ articles.

We value their opinions and ideas in helping us continue to make the International Hoof-Care Summit the premier learning experience in the world for footcare professionals.
