This was one of the first courses in the US that is dedicated to helping people achieve their American Farrier’s Association certification goals. It is a very intense course, and is taught at a high rate of speed. Regardless of your level of certification, or the level you are trying to achieve, this course can help you get there. It is also recommended as a great refresher course, even if you are not trying to take any exams.
The highlights of farriery theory are covered in this course, and the CJF Bar Shoe and CF Shoe Display are demonstrated and worked on. Students will have very little time for rest during this week.
Every day is spent doing horses that are graded to the AFA standard, while the student gets one-on-one help and input from the HHS staff. Cody became an AFA Certified Journeyman Farrier at the age of 15, so he is able to offer some remarkable advice and input that anyone can use. Chris became an AFA CJF in 1991, and is the only American that has become an Examiner for the Worshipful Company of Farriers. Couple that with the fact that he wrote and administered the certification program of the Association of Brazilian Farriers, and judged the first farrier exam for the South African Farrier’s Association; Chris and Cody can offer unparalleled guidance as you pursue your goal.
