October-November 2013 eNewsletter
On Saturday October 26, 2013, BWFA Members gathered at the
Kentucky Horsepark in Lexington for a one day meet and greet.
We are proud to announce
our new 2013 Inductee into the BWFA Hall of Fame is
Dave has been a member since 1990 at which time he was the blacksmith and farrier
for the park. His contributions to his craft and helping others who visited the park
to understand the importance of a professional farrier has been a great asset
to the farrier industry as a whole.
Enjoy this slide show which we will be adding to in days to come.
We would like to thank each and every member who attended that commented that they enjoyed a different location this year and we look forward to planning the 2014 event.

The Hall of Fame Poster has been placed in the Farrier Shop at the Park for
1000's of visitors to view and learn more about the
Brotherhood Of Working Farrier's Association!

The BWFA is a choice
We offer the choice of joining another Farrier Association.
We continue to be dedicated to offering education and public awareness by promoting the Farrier as the most important equine professional to the overall health of the horse.
The BWFA's goals are to inform the public and offer continuing education for farriers.
The BWFA has two divisions.
- Membership with a Board of Directors
- Master Educators with a Board of Directors which are school owners
The school owners developed the BWFA farrier certification as we have it today.
