If It's Important to Your Business,
It's Important to the FIA!

The Farrier Industry Association was founded in 1986 with a mission to provide companies operating in the hoof care industry with programs and services which will strengthen and grow their businesses. The FIA is a corridor for communication within the industry.

We are manufacturers, suppliers, retailers, and service providers who sell farrier-related products. We are competitors…and we are friends. We believe that promoting a strong and healthy farrier industry is good business for each of our businesses and a benefit to the farriers, horse owners, and horses who use our products and services.

If your business is to provide farriers with the most advanced tools, products, gear, and services they need to do their work, we welcome you to the FIA.
