Today I am speaking with my good friend, Daniel Bennett, AWCF. After hearing a couple of episodes where guests and I were discussing the AW exam, Danny reached out and suggested that we might have a few of our concepts a little misconstrued on what is involved in the exam and he wanted to clear that up.

As you will hear, Daniel is coming at this from a very interesting vantage point and his information is current and very helpful. This whole episode was basically Danny’s idea and is in the format that you would typically find on his podcast, the Lockdown Farrier Podcast. If you haven’t already, you should definitely check it out and subscribe. You will learn a ton. It is very focused on education and Danny has had many guests who are at the forefront of research in our trade.

I am very thankful that Danny took some time out of his fishing vacation on a Sunday afternoon to discuss all things AW, if you are in the midst of preparing for and attempting this exam, I’m sure you will find a lot of the information here very helpful, and it will help dispel a lot of myths. You’ve probably heard over the years about what is involved. It could even save you from practicing for the wrong things or surprises on exam day. Now, if you’re just at the beginning of your certification journey and the AW seems like a daunting far-off goal, please don’t disregard this particular episode.

Ever the educator, Danny shares a lot of information about preparing for any exam.  There is also a video version of this episode where you can see Daniel’s presentation as well. You can find it HERE

I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
