Farrier Product Distribution (FPD) has become the latest company to join forces with the American Farrier’s Association (AFA) as an educational communications partner. AFA Executive Director Beth Daniels issued the following statement: “We are delighted to partner with FPD in this initiative. Dan Burke and Linda Hill of FPD have a well-deserved reputation in our industry for supporting farrier related education on many different levels. They have been committed sponsors of the AFA for many years, and we are thrilled that they have partnered with us in our effort to further educate our membership.”
The AFA’s educational communications initiative offers companies the opportunity to utilize the AFA website video and blog platform and No Foot, No Horse newsletter for the purpose of providing product and product application information of an educational nature. With new product development within the industry at an all-time high, and horse owners becoming ever more knowledgeable about the options for the care and management of their horses’ feet, it has become increasingly important for farriers to stay current.
“We appreciate the work the AFA does in the farrier industry. Education and the sharing of information are important to farriers in their work, and FPD is happy to participate with the AFA as an educational communications partner,” said Burke, President of FPD.
Additional current educational partners include Life Data Labs, Inc. and Purina Animal Nutrition, LLC, which has sponsored a new series of AFA brochures covering topics of interest for farriers, horse owners and veterinarians, as well as five regional clinics for farriers and veterinarians.
The American Farrier’s Association was founded in 1971 and is the largest U.S. based organization serving farriers worldwide and the only U.S. farrier membership association to have an internationally recognized certification program. To learn more visit www.americanfarriers.org
