We have been informed that the Hawkesbury TAFE Farrier course will continue as is. There was concerns that all horse based courses at Hawkesbury would cease in the near future however with some intervention and commion sense the Farrier course will remain. There are still ongoing concerns regarding having two courses and the cost and funding constraints relating to running two coiurses 

As the platform for our website is about to be unsupported we will be changing servers in the near future. As the format of the website has remained largely unchanged the question now is should we leave the format as is or do we change the presentation completley ? We would like some imput from members regarding this issue. We would also ask members to submit new photos for the new website

If you would like to have an input to the new site please send your submissions and or photos to mfansw@mfansw.com.au

The association will be sponsoring two apprentice divisions of the shoeing competition at the Tamworth Cutting Futurity in June 2022.

Due to increased fuel prices recentley we have subsidised all our race day farrier services by $50 each farrier per midweek meetings indefenitley.

The association continues our association with the Inglis Riverside Sale complex at Warwickfarm servicing three sales in the last two months.

Members should be reminded of the apprentice subsidies currentley on offer by state and federal governments.This is an ideal oppurtunity to put on an apprentice

With life getting back to somewhere near normal in 2022 (disregarding a potential world war) there should be some events coming up in the near future. Scone horse week is in May and there will be a shoeing competitsion if anyone is interested .The association will be sponsoring the apprentice events.There will be two divisions for apprentices 1-2 second years and 3-4th years.

There has been rumours of Hawkesbury TAFE farrier course discontinuing however this is not true.Some of the horse courses conducted at Hawkesbury may be discontinued however we have not had comformation of this.The TAFE is undergoing a restructure with horse courses as the Scone facility only has two more years as it was purchased by Racing NSW. TAFE will lease back some parts of the Scone campus so we are asuming that both farrier courses will remain or possibley be consolidated into one facility in the futuredepending on the numbers of students.

The association is continuing to service the Inglis sales in 2022 and along with the raceday services which puts us in a healthy financial position moving forward and enables us to have no membership fees
