The Australian Farriers’ Conference will provide Farriers the opportunity to access the latest information, techniques, and products to use in their businesses and improve their level of knowledge and skills. Holding the Australian Farriers’ Conference annually will create a central hub for farriers to engage and network while providing an opportunity to continue their education on a yearly basis.
A central hub for farriers to engage, network, share knowledge & improve business management & job skills
The #australianfarriersconference is a brand new initiative and the first of its kind in Australia. It will be held from 2-4 August 2018 in Wisemans Ferry, NSW. Farriers from all over the country will come together to exchange ideas, learn new business and technical skills, and create a unique networking platform.
The three days will be packed with relevant speakers, local and international delegates, and include sessions covering the latest research and technology. A state of the art trade show will complement the conference showcasing tools, equipment, business management, equine products and services.
Our Vision is to hold the Australian Farriers’ Conference annually to create a central hub for farriers to engage and network, share knowledge and improve business management, job skills and horse welfare within the industry. It will also provide an opportunity to continue the education of a Farrier on a yearly basis.
