About Us

The San Diego County Farriers Association (SDCFA) was founded in 1992. This association was created to promote farrier science to horse owners, veterinarians and farriers alike. The Association plans to achieve this through clinics, farrier certifications and contests.


The mission of the SDCFA is to provide sound trimming and shoeing techniques of the 21st century, while still focusing on the importance of traditional forging and farriery techniques of generations past.


The goal the SDCFA is to increase awareness of the science of farriery and how vital it is to equine soundness and well-being.
