History of the World Championship Blacksmiths
The WCB was formed in the spring of 2006 as a membership based organization born from an idea that company CEO, Craig Trnka had been kicking around for years. The WCB founders wanted to produce horseshoeing competitions at venues where there was horse owning public to show and educate that a well educated farrier is a powerful tool - the only equine professional who sees the horse on a six week rotation in a non crisis situation.
The first ever and original Super Clinic took place in a covered arena in Houston Texas in January of 2007. Over 200 farriers from across the country gathered to take part in this first ever of its kind event and to preview what the WCB was going to be about!
