Forging On

Hear the hammers ring at the 2017 American Farrier’s Association National Forging & Horseshoeing Competition.

Project by Christine Hamilton

Top farriers gather annually to compete in the Capewell North American Challenge Cup live shoeing finals, part of the American Farrier’s Association National Forging & Horseshoeing Competition. One of the nation’s toughest farrier competitions—judging trimming, forging and shoeing—it draws farriers from around the world. These talented men and women compete to hone their skills and benefit the horse. Western Horseman said stopped in at the 2017 competition, held in Arlington, Texas. Learn more in “Staying Hungry,” in the June 2017 issue of Western Horseman.
