A Revolutionary Book that offers answers to so many unanswered questions.

On Sale for June! Take advantage of this opportunity to own this revolutionary treatise that redefines the principles of Chronic Founder and Suspension within the Equine Foot. 

"This book is the first book in over a century to challenge the very foundations of today's hoof care industry offering evidence based models for both suspension and balance." 

"Histology confirmed osteoarthritis of the ungular cartilages in those hooves displaying symptoms of chronic Founder. page 70"

"Balance has been a point of contention for as long as horses have been trimmed and shod. The Ungular Cartilage Suspension Model and the Internal Arch Apparatus Models dismiss this contention for what I believe to be the well-being of the horse. page 131"

With over 250 pages, 180 color illustrations, 108 bibliographic listings, a 27 page glossary, and extensive index. It promises to quickly become a go-to text for the most up-to-date information on hoof care for horses suffering these devastating pathologies. This book is the culmination of three decades of applied research, evidence based in vivo, and in vitro study. This book is for anyone that wishes to improve the quality of life of the horses in their care.

HPT Method of trimming Challenges Traditions

Here is a link to a video highlighting two trimming techniques. Even though this video was produced in 2007 the basics remain the same. Both trimming techniques have been around a long time. 

For anyone interested in exploring AEP and the HPT Method attending a hands-on course is a great start. I think it is important to know that this method has been taught to thousands of concerned horse owners and professionals for nearly 20 years. The HPT Method was included in an article published by the American Farriers Journal in November of 2002. The article was a review of the seven most common trims being taught around the world at that time. This method has stood the test of time and continues to help increase the quality of life our horses experience. I hope to see many of you at a hands-on course in the future. Best wishes
