How Formahoof is shaping the future of hoof care
Formahoof is a new breed of custom-fitted hoof support and protection that is transforming the way vets, farriers, horse owners and equine professionals think about hoof treatment.
Laminitis affects one in ten horses and ponies each year and is one of the biggest challenges in hoof care. At Formahoof we have dedicated years of research to tackle what is the second biggest killer of horses in the world.
Our patent pending moulds and systems are designed to make treating laminitis and managing painful laminitic hooves easier for vets and less stressful for horses, giving immediate relief while supporting the hoof capsule through the natural regeneration process. Formahoof restores the hoof capsule and sole arch, bringing instant comfort to horses suffering with severe rotation or P3 penetration, creating stability and providing support to the compromised limb through the healing process.
Formahoof has moved away from the traditional approach to podiatry and has embraced a more inclusive mindset with innovation at its core.
Comprehensive research with leading experts in the equine community and engaging with renowned veterinary professionals, as well as many years of extensive trialing and testing, have resulted in the revolutionary Formahoof products that you see today, which provide proven, durable hoof protection under a wide range of climates and environments.
We are starting a hoof care revolution that will transform the way we look after our horses and we want you to be a part of it.
