Love it

I bought it last summer and I absolutely love it! I use it all the time!

We do our own hooves the "Pete Ramey" way and while this does not replace all the regular farrier tools it helps out so much in between the trims I can't even begin to tell ya.

I use it about once a week on all three of my horses. Just a couple of swipes and done! It keeps that mustang roll perfectly.

I also bought the black one, can't remember what they called it. I've only used that once or twice. It's supposedly can be used to do a regular trim.

The black one is not on my love list though. I suppose if I worked with that one longer it would get better.

A few years ago I also bought the Riders Rasp, that has been collecting dust since about day one. Waste of my money, but, the Rider's Rasp gets a thumbs up from me. If you have the money I think it's worth it.

They have a shipping sale on their website today so I ended up ordering some replacement blades.

The only consideration would be the blades. They do last awhile, but, they do have to be replaced.

One last thought, I would not buy any of the other things he has for sale like the sole thing or the polisher type thing.

I have Pete Rameys book!, I love the trims. Im assuming you ment Radius Rasp for a thumbs up, not the riders Rasp. Im not intersted in any other tools, I don't normally touch the sole, never found a need to, And the polisher is most likely sand paper. Thanks Im real excited to get it now! Should be here anyday now :)

Radius rasp works really nice for touching up between farrier visits. Helps keep the chipping to a minimum. Big difference between this product and the piece of junk rider's rasp. The radius rasp is actually sharp enough to remove hoof---and your skin if you aren't careful.

I got the radius rasp about 6 months ago, and I use it to maintain our horses hooves between trims, and I absolutely love it. It actually removes hoof, but not so much that I could do any damage without having to work at it. And our boys hooves are staying on much better shape for a much longer period,a nd most importantly, theres practically ZERO chipping anymore! Well worth the money. I also got the sander and it does a great job of finishing.

I ordered one January 17, and it still has not arrived. I guess it is coming from Canada, so it is taking a while.

I recieved it ! It took forever to show up too :) I tried it on frozen hooves, It did not work well Ha Ha, I'll have to wait till it warms up a bit :) but I think it will be a good tool. I like the magnet in it, it holds onto my hoof pick :)
