The Centaur Reborn

The Centaur Reborn by Peter Speckmaier and Sabine Kells

The Centaur Reborn gives insight into how to establish optimal horse health, horsemanship, and top equine performance. In addition to a brief review on correct lifestyle and hoof care, it covers areas such as tack fit and horse nutrition, psychology, anatomy and physiology, especially as these relate to training, riding, and rehabilitation. Peter Speckmaier, one of the authors and the world's first Certified Strasser Hoofcare Specialist, is also a Chiron Jumping instructor; in this book he showns how basic Chiron jumping training can establish a horse's willing cooperation without force. Chiron-trained horses are often jumped without reins or headstalls, over obstacles such as ropes or streams of water shooting out of a garden hose. This book concludes with a brief history of Caprilli, the man who revolutionized jumping in the late 1800s.

"This book was written for everyone who has ever watched an equine performance and stood in awe, wondering how to even begin to achieve such harmony. It is for those who wish to give to their old familiar mounts whose health may be failing a new lease on life and vitality. It is for those who are frustrated by apparently inexplicable problems in their horses, from back pain to head tossing to vices that just won't go away. It is for those who want to achieve optimal perfomance in their chosen discipline, or who just want as healthy and willing and 'rideable' a horse as they can have." 172 pages.

The Secret of Happy Horses

"The Secret of Happy Horses"
by Sabine Kells

A wee little pocket-sized book for riders, horse owners and horse enthusiasts of all ages, especially those who "want to do right by the horse".  It is a basic, fun, and inexpensive introduction to the nature of the horse and its biological needs for health and longevity, so that these often misunderstood needs can be met and the foundation for a long, healthy life can be established in an age where the majority of domestic horses suffer from lameness problems and their average lifespan is often less than half of a horse's natural lifespan. This book touches on the basic aspects that anyone who has a horse should know: horse care and boarding, horsemanship and equine psychology, tack types and fit, hoof care and lameness rehabilitation, and the importance of our own attitude or focus in achieving our goals. It is as lighthearted and fun a book as it can be, serious information generously interspersed with the delightful cartoons of Doreen Guthrie. 186 page pocket size book.

Making Natural Hoof Care Work for You

Making Natural Hoof Care Work for You
by Pete Ramey

Pete Ramey is a skilled, full-time natural hoof care practitioner from Georgia (also a field instructor for the American Association of Natural Hoof Care Practitioners). Those who have read Jackson's Horse Owners Guide to Natural Hoof Care will recall the story of how Pete converted to natural hoof care in 1998, after being a shoer. Pete has now written his first book about the many horses, both shod and lame, he has brought successfully into barefootedness and soundness since then. Pete's reflections are based on his real life journey from novice to professional practitioner. Much of what Pete has learned has been through trial and error, and it is Pete's intention that you will be able to avoid some of his mistakes!
Written in down-to-earth language, and full of photos and drawings, this book is Pete's unique spin on natural hoof care. A perfect companion to the Horse Owners Guide to Natural Hoof Care, horse owners will find lots of useful information in Pete's book to make their hoof care programs more successful. Softcover, 168 pages.
