This book combines the technical and practical for the advanced user as well as those with some knowledge of horses. It is of most use to those who have performance horses where advanced shoeing knowledge is needed by your farrier. Fully recommend as a book to read or reference document.
My dad is undertaking a farrier course and this was his recommended reading book for his exams. He finds it very useful with detailed information on all aspects of being a farrier, as well as all the specific things regarding bones and muscles. The book makes good use of diagrams and pictures as well to help learning. Recommended for anyone undertaking a farrier course or just wanting to learn about it in general.
This book is well written and illustrated. I bought it for my son as he would like to train to be a farrier. It arrived promptly but unfortunately the envelope was not strong enough for the book to be posted through so many letterboxes during the delivery process. The corner was badly squashed and the envelope had a hole in it from where it had dropped. I'm not making a huge complaint but I would suggest that a better padded envelope would be much better for any type of book being posted with Royal Mail.
