The inaugural Australian Farriers' Conference was held in 2018 as the first of its kind in Australia. The 2nd annual Australian Farriers' Conference held in Surfers Paradise QLD in August 2019, again brought farriers together, both interstate and international, with a vested interest in continued education to share knowledge, experience and improving business management, job skills and horse welfare within the industry. The 3-day format is packed with relevant speakers, local and international delegates, latest research, technology and specialist sessions.
