I can do without something that doesn't address the heels.

In riding, a horse's energy is like a river- guided by the banks but not stopped by them.

EXACTLY!!! That's why I thought it was a cool little device. I thought it would be great to put in my regular grooming routine...or to polish the hooves up right before going into the show arena I'm not going to comment any more on this because its becoming one of those vendetta things. I'm just going to try it and see what happens...if I waste my money...hey...I stimulated the economy right.

I use medium sandpaper to touch up my horses hooves before a show. Works better and you can do the whole hoof wall, not just the edges. I'll use coarse if there's a chip or to round out the edges.

What I don't get about that riders rasp is it is 50.00 and then the replacement blades are the same cost?!?!?!

Let us know what you think of it, but I think I wil stick with my regular rasp for touch ups and chips between trims.
