The National Equine & Hoof Research Foundation, Inc.

The National Equine & Hoof Research Foundation, Inc. assists in providing financial support for research and soundness of the horses' hoof. We support the FNRC and school in their efforts to be the leader in farrier science research and education. This is a nonprofit organization recognized under Section 501 (c) 3 of the Internal Revenue Service tax code.

Contributions can be made to the NEHRF as a group or as an individual. If your organization contributes $500.00 to the NEHRF, you will be invited to the FNRC for a hoof-trimming clinic. We ask that your club come as a group of about 25 people. 


Freckles & Flat Rock competition 005.jpg

Freckles was slightly foundered, but after 3 months of our care she acquired a new home where her care was maintained by a farrier affiliated with the FNRC.

 These horses were donated to the NEHRF, cared for and given new homes thanks to farriers affiliated with the FNRC & BWFA.


Horses We Have Helped!

If you do not wish to donate your horse to the NEHRF, you can bring the horse to the Farriers' National Research Center. We would charge you only for the materials used and will be happy to give you a free evaluation before any services are preformed. We can keep the horse overnight for a small fee per day, or you can bring him and take him home the same day.
