OUR NEWEST BOOKS & MEDIA
organ in a horse’s body is not its heart or lungs or liver, but
the skin. Some experts say it is also the most neglected part of a horse’s
body. This new book looks at how skin, hari, and hoof horn work together
to protect the body, regulate temperature, and expand/contract. All those
skin problems from mud fever to rain rot and sweet itch are covered. Full
of color photos and diagrams, 192 pages, 7.5 x 9” paperback, Available
in USA July 2005. $40 plus $6 post in USA, $12 rest of world, via air

biomechanics theories. The section on the hind end is particularly helpful.
There is no one out there who won’t find things of interest here.

examination of the effects of saddles on horses of all shapes and sizes,
plus other sources of back pain. Covers all types of saddles, all shapes

In this highly illustrated, comprehensive book, Dr. Harman reveals that 75 percent of horses that are chronically stiff, crooked, resistant, or disagreeable are reacting to back pain caused by an ill-fitting saddle.
The reader is introduced to the factors that must be considered when searching for a saddle--numerous elements of horse and rider conformation and saddle construction--and painstakingly walked through the process of determining how the function of the horse's back, and the competence of the rider's seat are affected by them. It is made astoundingly clear that the results of conscientious saddle fitting are a horse that performs eagerly and moves freely, and a rider who finds it easy to correct her position, communicate her aids, and sit on her horse in a relaxed and balanced manner.
Dr. Harman includes a thorough chapter on caring for the horse's back, with information on holistic therapies and tips for changing potentially problematic management practices.
Dr. Harman is a veterinarian and respected saddle-fitting expert. She has been certified in veterinary acupuncture for fourteen years and veterinary chiropractic for a decade and is trained in homeopathy and herbal medicine. She has owned and operated Harmany Equine Clinic, a holistic veterinary practice in Washington, Virginia, since 1990.

Published October 2004.
Soft cover. 126 pages, illustrations/photos, references, reading list, indexed. Focuses on current therapy and philosophies, both traditional mainstream and “natural” shoeing and barefoot care of horses. Author is a leading research team member in hoof physiology lab (Michigan State University) and a farrier.
(Note this book has been endorsed by farrier author Henry Heymering with a resoundingly positive back cover review, and you know how hard that is to come by! He says, among other good things, “Much of the research on hooves from ancient to current times is explained with unmatched clarity. The more people read this book, the more sound horses there will be.”)
Note: Many of you read Lisa’s insightful article about her role assisting Dr Robert Bowker in hoof research projects at the Michigan State University’s “Equine Hoof Laboratory” in Hoofcare #78.
