The American Association of Professional Farriers and Canadian Association of Professional Farriers are pleased to recognize the thirty (30) companies which have committed to being “AAPF/CAPF Educational Partners." Their partnership has allowed us to fund AAPF/CAPF Hoofcare Essentials Clinics and other educational functions throughout the United States and Canada.

Originally it was suggested that the AAPF/CAPF 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 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 will provide one or two clinicians for each one day clinic based upon the projected attendance.

Upcoming AAPF/CAPF sponsored clinics include:

• September 18 & 19 - Life Data Labs, Cherokee, Alabama
• Clinicians: Current AAPF/CAPF Board of Directors
