The DVD series Under the Horse should be made prerequisite to That’s My Horse in all training programs. The purpose of the future TMH series is to help practitioners apply the basic protocols described in UTH on specific and complex cases.
OTT Thoroughbred with distal descent of P3, chronic subsolar abscessing, exposed solar corium, severe wall flares, thin soles, lamellar wedge around the entire periphery of all 4 hooves and weak lateral cartilages. Watch us grow a better foot and give the horse a second chance.
“We chose this case to be #1 in the series because it was so difficult to get her comfortable. Everything we tried seemed to help for a week, and then she would crash again. Often when people see “before and after” radiographs or pictures they fail to realize how much work and dedication happened in between- triumph, heartbreak, triumph, more heartbreak... I wanted to get this across, and showing a case that almost beat me seemed like the best way to do this.” Pete
In this 3 Disc DVD Set, watch each step in the process as Pete tries to help this horse grow functional feet. Watch as the trimming changes over time and also see:
Teaching people to rehabilitate hoof problems is very difficult because every case is different. While the generalized instruction we provided in the lecture series Under the Horse was as detailed and complete as we could make it, we still find ourselves "stepping outside that box" on a routine basis. Disc 10 of the UTH series got rave reviews and was described as one of the most helpful hoof videos ever filmed. In Disc 10 we showed every trim of a distal descent and rotation reversal. A lot of real world information came out as we worked thru the nuances of that individual case. The appreciation folks had for Disc 10's format gave us the idea for the That's my Horse series.
We plan to film as many completely different 'types' of hoof problems as we can over time. We will show each trim, how the horse moves, the changes to the feet, and how we deal with the everyday problems that pop up. Currently we have completed footage on a navicular horse, a "high/low" horse, a club foot, several chronically foundered horses and a "splat-footed" draft horse. We'll keep filming other 'types' as they come along. As we get time, we'll put each case together in a DVD set (That's My Horse #1, #2, #3......). A serious student will then be able to collect each video set, and concerned horse owners will be able to just buy the one that most matches their personal horse's situation.
We are very excited about this format. Aside from showing more of the 'out in the dirt' nuances of rehabilitative hoof work, it will provide Pete an opportunity to present new findings and methodology discovered over time. Keep checking back here for new videos- we hope to put a new one out every 6 months or so. Ivy and Pete

I have two of the hoof rehab videos. Both demonstrate that hoof rehab takes time. The videos are repetitive, but I think that is an important feature. It points out that there is no magic involved, no quick fix. Correct trimming, dietary changes and using boots or casts to keep the horse comfortable and lots of time and patience are what is needed. It takes time to grow out a new hoof or two. Also, noted in the videos is that not all lameness is hoof related. It can be difficult to determine exactly what the cause of the lameness might be. Very good information. Happy to have these videos!
