From the Back Cover:

The Very Best In Shoeing Instruction. Veteran Army farriers say this 1941 War Department technical manual (TM-220) offers the best instructions on shoeing techniques to be found anywhere. And we know you'll find this 128-page book jammed with hundreds of practical shoeing ideas you can put to good use.

Featuring hundreds of time-tested Cavalry shoeing techniques, you'll pick up tips and techniques dealing with: anatomy and physiology, tools, shoes and nails, handmaking shoes, borium-treated horseshoes, fundamentals of horseshoeing, normal, special and corrective shoeing techniques, proper care of feet between shoeings, effective care of unshod feet, practical trimming and shoeing suggestions, and 107 time-tested shoeing questions and answers featured in a unique chapter called "The Horseshoer's Catechism."

Part of the American Farriers Journal "Farrier Classics Series: of books, The Cavalry Horseshoer's Technical Manual has been reissued since shoers and horse owners kept asking where they could find a copy of this valuable shoeing manual.

Review:

Starting with anatomy and physiology of the horse's foot, pastern and legs, the 128-page book is packed with beautifully drawn illustrations. But the illustrations aren't only for the anatomy portions. Instead, the book is chock-full of pictures and diagrams, covering everything from shoeing tools, making shoes from bar stock, applying Borium, specialty shoeing and caring for bare feet. It also delves into shoeing specific types of horses including the riding horse, polo ponies, hunters and jumpers and draft animals. While shoeing methods come and go, this book focuses on the ways that have worked for centuries. -- American Farriers Journal, March/April, 2000
