The Canadian Association of Professional Farriers (CAPF) has been launched as an affiliate of the American Association of Professional Farriers (AAPF) to provide Canadian farriers with a professional organization that not only promotes the integrity of the farrier industry as a whole, but also strengthens the knowledge and skill set of its membership.

The CAPF invites farriers representing all horse breeds and disciplines to join. Industry accreditation can be achieved by enrolling in our educational programs designed to enhance the art and science of farriery. With additional educational background, every horse owner throughout Canada and the United States will benefit by knowing their horse is in good and knowledgeable hands.

Regular membership in the AAPF and CAPF is open to any full-time or part-time farrier.

As part of the launch, JLT Sport, a division of Jardine Lloyd Thompson Canada Inc. has announced the introduction of a tailored and affordable Farrier Insurance Program to help meet the needs of daily business activities by providing protection on or off their premises.

Additional details about the AAPF and CAPF are available on the orgnaizations' websites: www.ProfessionalFarriers.com and www.ProfessionalFarriers.ca.
