of Farriers Associations (EFFA)
History of EFFA
The European Federation of Farriers Associations (EFFA) was founded on 14 December 1997 at the Veterinary School at Maisons Alfort in Paris. This followed preparatory meetings at Stoneleigh (UK) in 1995, Utrecht (Netherlands) and Verona (Italy) in 1996.
The original member nations were: Belgium, Denmark, France, Ireland, Italy, Netherlands, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, United Kingdom.
Over the next few years, Belgium and Italy left EFFA, while Austria, Czech Republic, Finland, Germany, Hungary, Iceland and Norway joined. This led to the 15 member nations that are listed elsewhere on this site.
Malta and Algeria are represented by individuals.
