The equine hoof is a complex marvel of natural engineering, built to withstand tremendous forces and able to adapt to an astonishing range of environmental conditions. It also changes daily–for better or for worse–in response to external and internal factors. Few horse owners have the opportunity to acquire a deep understanding of the hoof, which limits their ability to advocate on their horses' behalf and make informed decisions about hoof care and management. This book is the first resource of its kind to combine the most current and useful information available, gleaned from the research and wisdom of top hoof experts around the world, with a unique "hands-on" approach. The authors provide basic terms and anatomy, clearly illustrate the differences between healthy and unhealthy feet, discuss biomechanics and management concerns, and cover the causes, treatments, and prevention of commonly encountered problems, including laminitis, white line disease, and thrush. Along the way, readers are given activities to help them better analyze and understand the most important aspects of equine hoof health, such as hoof balance, depth of sole, and point of breakover. Easy–to–follow language, over 400 full–color photographs, and do–it–yourself exercises promise to empower horse owners and caretakers of all experience levels with the tools they need to accurately assess hoof health and keep their horses as sound and happy as possible.

Reviews

There are many faces of imbalance and asymmetry in the horse's hoof. Flares are just one example that every owner, rider, trainer, and caretaker should understand and know how to manage. Here's how Kauffmann and Cline explain them in their book.  www.horsenetwork.com Could easily serve as a textbook for a class in anatomy, equine science or equine management, but reads so easily that you could find yourself working steadily from cover to cover loaded with high-quality photographs illustrating essentially every facet of the text can serve both as a text to educate the horse owner and a shelf reference that's easily navigated to find a specific issue or concern. www.horsenation.com "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." www.horsenation.com
