I love Pete Ramey, but do not have any of his DVDs. However, I have studied his book, Making Natural Hoof Care Work For You. I also spent hours on his website and any other site reading and studying the pictures. Instead of spending money on the DVDs, my best friend and I hired a barefoot trimmer that was trained by Pete Ramey to come and spend some time teaching us. We have been doing our own horses feet for about 6 years and considering all the money that we have saved not paying a farrier, it was well worth it. She even let us split the cost instead of charging us each individually.

Since then, we have met Anita Martin. She has a great website.

Total Balance Natural Hoof Care

She is a follower of Pete Ramey and has attended his clinics. We recently had her come out to do a trim, but mostly to critique our horse's feet and tell us if there was anything that we were doing wrong or could do better. She was so knowledgeable and passionate about her work.

Thank you for the info rather be riding. After looking into buying the dvd pack I am not sure if 250 dollars is going to fly with the wife, so I will probably have to get the book.

I still do have another question though I read somewhere that pete says some of the info. In the book is not correct anymore. That he has changed some of his ideas. I was wondering if anyone knew what the changes were? Would it greatly affect the results of barefoot hoof care?

So basically will the book be sufficient or should I skip that and just get the dvds?

I still think that the book is very relevant. I just think that it was written a while ago and even the great Pete Ramey is still learning. Have you checked you local library to see if they have the book? If so, you could look at it first and then decide if you would like to buy it. I have heard that his DVDs are very good, but I liked the book better since I could actually take it out to the barn with me.

Okay thanks. I found the book online for 20 bucks or so, so I bought it. Hopefully now I can get my bay mare barefoot all the time, and not just most of the time. Just looking at that lady's website told me a lot. Basically I have been doing everything I could have to screw up her feet. Ggrrrr And I had the best intentions too. Oh well moving forward.
