The Complete Modern Guide to Horse Feet — Anatomy, Care and Health, Disease Diagnosis and Treatment

Reviews for The Essential Hoof Book
A great resource for all things hoof-related, The Essential Hoof Book truly is essential to have in any barn.
Hardcover and spiral-bound, which make it delightful to use as a reference book (why are they not all like that?). With such a wide range of useful information, this is the type of book that is a must-have for all hoof care professionals (farriers/trimmers/vets) … [and] every single horseowner
The Horse's Hoof
Once you’ve read The Essential Hoof Book, you will have a much deeper understanding of the horse’s hoof and how to keep it healthy and sound in ways you perhaps never thought of—or thought possible.
Gene Ovnicek GPF-RMF (Guild of Professional Farriers - Registered Master Farrier)
What I particularly love about this book is that it does not preach one ‘right’ way to treat hooves instead, The Essential Hoof Book teaches readers how hooves can be managed rather than ‘corrected.’ The Essential Hoof Book needs to be on every horse owner’s bookshelf
