A Practical Guide to Horseshoeing
A Practical Guide to Horseshoeing
A Practical Guide to Horseshoeing provides the horse enthusiast with detailed information about horseshoeing. Extensively illustrated and laid out as a technical manual indexed by chapter, section and paragraphs, this book contains invaluable historic knowledge of horseshoeing.

The anatomy and physiology of a horse's foot, pastern and legs are studied, and information on horseshoer's tools, machine-made shoes and nails are given. Handmade horseshoes from bar iron or steel are examined, as are borium-treated horseshoes.

Both normal and corrective shoeing is discussed for the riding horse, polo horses, hunters and jumpers, and draft animals. Care of the horses feet between shoeing periods and care of unshod horses is explained as well. A question and answer section called the Horseshoer's Catechism rounds out the book with information on anatomy, normal shoeing, shoeing to relieve or correct disorders of the foot and shoeing to correct faults in gait.

A Practical Guide to Horseshoeing, prepared under the direction of the Chief of Cavalry of the U.S. Mounted Cavalry, is an invaluable guide to practical horseshoeing knowledge.
