The Jamison Albright Foundation for Farrier Scholarships (J.A.F.F.F.S) is a charitable trust established for the purpose of awarding scholarships to individuals interested in a career as a Farrier. We believe formal education is the best way to prepare individuals in the care and maintenance of the feet of the horse to ensure sound performance with minimal injury or risk to the animal. We hope the scholarship will help Farrier students develop a firm foundation to ensure a successful career as a certified Farrier.
This foundation was created in honor of a prodigious young man who left this world too soon in May 2008.
Jamison Michael Albright had a heart of gold and a presence that will be remembered for years and years to come. He developed a love for horses as a young child, and spent his days at the local horse barn caring for and riding any horse he could get his hands on. This spurred his career path towards being a “legendary farrier.”
After high school he attended the Oklahoma Horse-shoeing School in Purcell to train as a Master Farrier. Jamison went on to work hard as a farrier, never complaining about the long hours and strenuous work. He had an incredible gift with the mighty and soulful animals, and they showed him trust and respect in his abilities to care for them. He lived life fully and passionately up until his passing in a motorcycle accident on May 1st, 2008.
