Hoof care is hugely important to your Horse and Pony’s wellbeing and quality of life, unfortunately it’s an area that is sometimes overlooked which can lead to much more serious problems over time. It is important to make sure your horse’s hooves are always in good condition which will help prevent infections and damage.
Your hoof care regime starts with simply cleaning out your horse’s feet with a hoof pick and a brush which gives you the opportunity to check for any signs of infection or bad smells in the frog or any damage or brittleness to the hoof wall itself. The earlier you pick up on potential problems and inform your farrier or vet the better.
We sell a range of frog care, the frog is one of the most important parts of the hoof, if the frog is unhealthy and unclean it could leave the area vulnerable to infection. To prevent infection this area must be looked after correctly. We also have a range of hoof cleaners and polishes which keep your horse’s hooves clean, tidy and show ready! If it is an all-round protection that you require for your horse’s hooves the Anti-fungal gloss prevents chipping, cracks and soft, spongy, smelly frogs to help keep your horse’s hoof hygiene tip top.
