Mission & Goals


The NEAEP exists to improve the health and welfare of horses by providing state-of-the-art advanced professional education to equine veterinarians, farriers, technicians, veterinary students and horse owners.  The Association was created to support owners and practitioners who care for their horses by providing access to region-specific industry information, networking opportunities, and additional representation on medical and legislative issues at the state and regional levels.

The NEAEP is the first organization to include farriers in our definition of “equine practitioners” and to actively foster the relationship between veterinarians and farriers.
