Making Natural Hoof Care Work
for You
by Pete Ramey

Pete Ramey is a skilled, full-time natural hoof care practitioner from Georgia, who converted from shoeing to natural hoof care in 1998. In this book, Pete describes the many horses, both shod and lame, he has brought successfully into barefootedness and soundness since then. Pete's reflections are based on his real-life journey from novice to professional practitioner. Much of what Pete has learned has been through trial and error, and it is his intention that you will be able to benefit from what he's learned, and avoid some of his mistakes!

Written with lots of heart in down-to-earth language, this best-selling book is Pete's unique spin on natural hoof care. His humility and respect for horses shine through on every page.

Pete recommends that readers be familiar with Jaime Jackson's
Horse Owners Guide to Natural Hoof Care before reading this book as it was the starting point for his own work.

Pete's book is recommended by Clinton Anderson, and has been featured on the Clinton Anderson television show. It is also internationally popular, and has been translated into several languages.

Reader Review
"Every horse owner and farrier should own Making Natural Hoof Care Work for You!! This wonderful book provides golden information about horse hooves, hoof care, and trimming. I had been trimming my naturally barefoot horses for a few years when I first read this book, but it quickly became an invaluable resource. The excellent guidance provided in the material and honest evaluations of natural trimming compliment the excellent trim photographs. The photo progressions helped me to see what Pete Ramey did with each situation. He shows foot trims of different breeds, and each hoof tells its own story. I continue to refer to the book any time I have a new question about one of our horses' hooves." -- Pamela from Georgia
