The American Association of Professional Farriers, Canadian Association of Professional Farriers and International Association of Professional Farriers are pleased to recognize the thirty-eight (38) companies which have committed to being “AAPF/CAPF/IAPF Educational Partners". Their partnership has allowed us to fund AAPF/CAPF/IAPF Hoofcare Essentials Clinics and other educational functions throughout the United States and Canada.


Originally it was suggested that the AAPF/CAPF/IAPF would sponsor 4 - 5 clinics per year. With the overwhelming support for this program, we now plan to sponsor 8 - 10 clinics during the next 12 months. The AAPF/CAPF/IAPF has also been able to purchase a complete audio visual package (projector, screen, and sound system) which will help reduce the costs for hosts of the clinics.


The AAPF/CAPF/IAPF will provide one or two clinicians for each one day clinic based upon the projected attendance.
