As a current member of the ICFTA, I think it is worth while for any hoof trimmer to join. It is great to be able to discuss all aspects of hoof care with other hoof trimmers. I am insured with Wrights Insurance through the association for which I receive a discount. The association organise, check and diploma days for its members. I did the check day with Pieter Kloosterman this year and found this very beneficial.
