Hoof Meter Reader (for horse owners)


Invented by Jaime Jackson


2012 model replaces 1999 version.

  • User friendly! For horse owners, trimmers, farriers, and vets.
  • Reads easily from both sides of the horse — no need to reach across one hoof to measure the other.
  • 3 measurement dials:
    • Yellow dial measures left hooves.
    • Red dial measures right hooves.
    • White (center) dial is scaled in both metric and U.S. units.
  • Measurements are calibrated to my measurement data gathered from wild horse hooves as published in The Natural Horse: Lessons from the Wild (Northland Published, 1992).
    • Compare your horse’s measurements with those of sound wild horse hooves.
    • Know when your horse’s hoof measurements are in the “natural” and “healthy” ranges or are “unnatural” and heading towards lameness.
  • Indispensable hoof gauge for conducting the natural trim.

Free simplified instructions for horse owners available here. You can download and/or print and take to your horse to use.

Not sure what to order?

If you need help deciding what to order, please email me and I will get back to you if not the same day, within a day. If you have questions about shipping, I cannot tell you in advance what shipping fees might be, but please read my statement below.

Shipping Rates!

I use a 3rd party ap to get the best possible shipping rate, however it is not integrated with this website due to technical limitations. But after you place your order, I always refund the difference between what you pay at checkout (the USPS retail rate) and what I will save you using my 3rd Party ap. This typically amounts to substantial savings for both U.S. domestic and international orders, especially when you order multiple and heavier products.
