A Lifetime of Soundness (LOS)
The Keys to Optimal Horse Health, Lameness Rehabilitation and the High-Performance Barefoot Horse
by Hiltrud Strasser, Dr. med. vet., PhD

All new 4th edition, revised and with color pages! This is the book that started the barefoot horse movement. Dr. Hiltrud Strasser is a veterinarian who, for over thirty years, has been studying and researching the causes and cures of lameness and other common health problems of domestic horses. This revolutionary book will forever change the way you care for your horses. According to Dr. Strasser, "Most of the common health problems and lamenesses afflicting domestic horses are a direct result of man-made violations of their natural lifestyle, and can be prevented or cured through a removal of the cause and a return to a natural lifestyle." This book explains the Strasser Method and philosophy. 196 page soft cover book, COLOR PHOTOS and black & white photos and illustrations.

Dr. Strasser is a veterinarian who, for nearly twenty years, has been studying and researching the causes and cures of lameness and other common health problems of domestic horses. In 1993, she opened the Institute for Hoof Health and ESHOP (European School for Hoof Orthopedics) in Tuebingen, Germany--a center for study and learning, in which the hoofcare specialists in Europe obtain their schooling. In this first holistic hoof clinic, equine patients from around Europe are routinely healed and restored to a fully active life after being given up as hopeless and incurable by conventional veterinary medicine. Dr. Strasser is the author of several textbooks on lameness and healing, reference books on natural boarding for horses, and many articles for both horse and veterinary journals. (Her newest textbook was written in English and co-authored by Hoofcare Specialist Sabine Kells, see info below.)
