The Michigan Horseshoers Association began in 1969. It is an organization which provides services to the horse owning population of the state. As the years have passed the number of horses in Michigan has grown, and so has the MHA. Without the support of volunteers and sponsors, it would be impossible for the MHA to meet the demands requested of the organization. The Michigan Horseshoers Association was the first professional Farriers association in the United States. Two years later the American Farriers Association was formed and based originally upon the profile created by our Michigan Association.
