50 years and Up Contest
A 50th Anniversary Contest would not be complete without a 50yrs. and older class…. Class Judge will be Craig Trnka! More details to come…. you must be at least 50 yrs. old to enter, prize money is added to this class, bragging rights, and a hand forged trophy! You can ‘steal’ a station that is already set up, no need to worry about equipment! Pack your favorite hammer and tongs!
For the 50th Anniversary Contest and Clinic the Michigan Horseshoer’s Association will host a special competition for all you 50 year old, or older, ‘Masters’. This is your opportunity to show that there is still some fire in your forge by competing with farriers in your own age group.
This special ‘Masters’ class will be judged by Craig Trnka. This event will take place on Saturday at the same time the Draft Horse Class is taking place. Those 50 and Up competitors who have entered the Draft Horse Class will be given an earlier opportunity on Thursday evening to make the competition shoe.
The 50 and Up class at the Michigan Horseshoers Association 50th Contest and Clinic will use these dimensions for the contest shoe shown below; 13 1/2″ X 3/8″ X 3/4″ It measures 4 7/8″ wide by 5 3/4″ long all measurements where done square.
