 Product Description

Author: Simon Curtis FWCF

This book is for farriers, veterinary surgeons, trainers and breeders. It describes farriery involvement, from the newborn foal to the horse in training and back to the stud farm. There are over 200 colour prints and 50 diagrams that take the reader through a clear, methodical assessment of conformation and hoof shape.

Each type of deformity is described with treatment options given. Up to date techniques for managing conditions of the foot and limb, with the latest materials, are shown.

Topics include: Understanding foot balance, deformities in foals, making and applying extensions, cosmetic shoeing for sales, plating for the turf and dirt track, hoof wall and crack repair, infections of the foot, making and fitting bar shoes and terminology.

The author, a 4th generation farrier, has practised in Newmarket, England for over 25 years. During that time he has worked equally on horses at stud and in training and trained over 15 apprentices. He receives referrals from both farriers and veterinary surgeons and is a consultant to many of the top trainers and stud farms. His articles have been published in farriery and veterinary journals around the world. He has held clinics and lectured in North America, Asia, Austrailia and Europe.
