An easy to read book that will enlighten novice and experienced horse owners about keeping a horse barefoot, and the use of hoof boots as a highly successful, healthier and modern alternative to metal shoes. The author, a natural hoof-care exponent, provides straightforward, impartial advice on making the transition from shod to barefoot, and discusses the importance of diet and exercise in the maintenance of healthy hooves. She describes different kinds of trim and offers guidance on choosing a hoofcare professional. Barefoot boots are discussed in detail, along with how to choose and fit them. At least one case study is included with each chapter and there are helpful notes on troubleshooting.
