Big news! Pete Ramey's Under the Horse DVD series gets a very important review from the American Farriers Journal. The barefoot concept is definitely not a fad but a concept accepted by even the brightest thinkers in the horse industry.
Ramey’s set of DVD’s is without a doubt a must-have series for any
equine professional farrier or horse owner. While he is an advocate of
barefoot trimming, there are many ideas that you can learn from this
package regardless of how you trim and shoe horses. In these 10 DVD’s,
Pete Ramey spends 16 hours covering topics ranging from basic anatomy,
biomechanics, nutrition, laminitis, navicular issues and problem feet.
All are discussed in a clear, no-nonsense approach.
This series is filled with detailed information that all equine professionals can use. Everything is explained in such a way that everyone can benefit from Ramey’s knowledge and learn new ways to unlock tremendous healing powers from the horse’s hooves. It focuses on the ability to demonstrate the steps that are needed to drive a pathological hoof toward a healthier state. A combination of contemporary veterinary research and practical real-world field work will help viewers arrive at sound protocols that can be put to immediate use with any horse.
In 9 hours of classroom instruction, you’ll learn about the mechanics of trimming and how to effectively bring positive changes to the hoof over time. You’ll also develop a deep understanding of the internal hoof structure and see how it impacts a horse’s performance.
Following the lecture portion, you’ll view 7 hours of trimming on live horses suffering from a wide range of hoof concerns. This includes assorted breeds, a foundered mule and a draft horse. Finally, the DVD walks you step-by-step through an emergency call with a laminitic horse suffering from a 20-degree rotation. You’ll evaluate the trimming and progress during a number of visits with this laminitic horse.
Pete Ramey offers wisdom and insight that his years of practice and study have given him. If you own only one shoeing DVD series, this should be it."
