Review for Hoof Prints on the Journey:

I was a fast convert after getting my first pair of Treks a few months ago. I have used them weekly with my gelding and can’t imagine I’ll ever go back to shoes! I loved them before I even knew the philosophies and reasons behind barefoot hoof care, but please tell Carole that reading her book has increased my understanding and cemented the philosophy for me.

Everyone talks about how horses are therapeutic. I’m the poster child for someone whose life is more livable because of them. It’s especially important to me that I honour my horse’s important role in my life by doing my best to keep him healthy and happy, too. I feel like I’m even closer to that ideal now.
