About us:


Welcome to the Texas Professional Farriers Association Website. We are a group of horseshoers dedicated to upholding the standards of the AFA, continuing farrier education and striving towards ethical, correct shoeing jobs for the amazing animal we owe so much to; the horse. We get together several times a year to share knowledge and bring in some of the best clinicians in the world to do so. We are a farriers guild and have built strong and lasting friendships and welcome any farrier young or old to the trade to join us on our journey to enlightening ourselves in this career.
