Overview

"No hoof, no horse" takes on new meaning with today's demanding sports and competitions. And since it takes considerable time and emotional involvement to develop an equine athlete, it is heartbreaking when a talented, well-trained horse is unable to perform due to an avoidable lameness. Maximum Hoof Power is a comprehensive guide to help horse owners develop proper hoof-care practices and to gain an understanding of shoeing techniques for the performance horse. A wide range of topics is covered, including factors that affect movement, selecting the right shoe, the shoeing process, choosing a farrier, coping with lameness, and corrective shoeing. Cherry Hill has taught university courses in riding, training, and management; she has written hundreds of articles as well as five books on equine topics, including Becoming an Effective Rider and 101 Arena Exercises. Richard Klimesh, a master farrier, specializes in therapeutic shoeing. Hill and Klimesh breed Quarter Horses and warmbloods on their Colorado ranch.
