What Trapani does is give readers practical info they need to keep their horses sound. He discusses how the hoof works and the proper balancing of it, how to choose the right show for the work performed, how to trim the hoof and keep it pliable and healthy, and how to discipline and use effective methods of restraint. Trapani suggests various ways to correct lameness and conformation problems, He tells what to look for in a farrier. Most important of all, he explains how to deal with emergencies.
