Established in Albuquerque, New Mexico in 1971, the AFA began with a small organization of farriers who wished to help organize the farrier community and provide direction for the future. Since those humble beginnings, the AFA has grown into an association of international scope, providing direction and growth for the farrier community.

Today, the AFA represents farrier interests throughout the equine world. In addition to its primary concerns of promoting equine welfare and providing continuing education for working farriers and the equine community, the AFA stays abreast of the equine community and acts as an advocate for farriers in relations with veterinarians, breed and sport associations, and state and federal government agencies.
