"I wrote this book to help horse owners and professionals get the facts straight concerning natural hoof
care. Practically speaking, it's a step-wise trimming method using the sound hooves of wild horses as my
model. I've tested this method extensively for over 20 years. It works."
"Well organized book with step by step instructions for natural trimming. I am already offering to loan it
out to friends because it is so full of information, has great photos and clear instructions on how to trim.
I found the writer to be no-nonsense and extremely clear. I really like this guy because he was a
long-time farrier and so he has had lots of experience with horses' feet. He obviously has the horse's
best interest at heart. I recommend this book to anyone who is thinking of having their horse go
barefoot or already has a barefoot horse." -- J. Dale from Arizona

I have the book, Horse Owners Guide to Natural Hoof Care, and have been practicing your trimming
guidelines for most of this year. The change in my clients' horses is even hard for me to believe. I can
say now that I have seen some close to perfect feet. Before this I had only seen one horse with feet this
pretty and well developed. I really enjoy practicing these techniques and look forward to learning
more." -- James from Mississippi
