of Farriers Associations (EFFA)
EFFA promotes and supports the highest standards possible within the farrier education
EFFA uses the network of European Farriers to make educationsl tools available for the different countries and institutions.
Historically, there have been differences throughout Europe in the way horses have been kept and used, and as a result European farriers have been trained to work differently and to use different horse shoes and tools. Nowadays, horses are kept and used in similar ways all over Europe, and there is less reason for national differences.
