The BWFA is a choice

We offer  the choice of joining another Farrier Association.  

We continue to be dedicated to offering education and public awareness by promoting the Farrier as the most important equine professional to the overall health of the horse. 

The BWFA's goals are to inform the public and offer continuing education for farriers.

The BWFA has two divisions. 

  • Membership with a Board of Directors                       
  • Master Educators with a Board of Directors which are school owners

The school owners developed the BWFA farrier certification as we have it today.
