Spend the day learning with Cody Gregory.
As a small child, Cody began working toward his goal of being the youngest American Farrier’s Association Certified Farrier, which he reached at 14. Not complacent with that mark, Cody passed the American Farrier’s Association Certified Journeyman Farrier exam at 15, shattering the previous record for the youngest to reach that mark.
In 2009, at the age of 17, Cody received a Diploma of the Worshipful Company of Farriers. He also achieved the amazing accomplishment of earning the Associateship of the Worshipful Company of Farriers exam at the age of 19.
Winning his fist buckle in a farrier competition at the age of 6, Cody has since competed all over the US and several international competitions. He was the alternate on the American Farrier’s Team in 2012 where he won first place at the Internationals Alternate Class in Stoneleigh. In 2013, 2014, and 2015 he earned a spot on the World Champion Blacksmith Team. Cody was the WCB National Champion in 2014 as well, and was part of that team when they won the world title at Calgary in 2015. He was also the top placing American in Calgary at the World Championship Blacksmiths Competition in 2013, and has won the Capewell Cup at the American Farrier’s Association annual convention and contest.
