FormaHoof is uniquely suited to treating Laminitis as it encapsulates the damaged hoof, protecting and supporting the sensitive internal structures. This prevents further deterioration, whilst also immediately reducing pain and improving the horse’s ability to move. The resulting comfort also reduces overall stress levels, leading to a faster recovery as the horse can quickly return to a regular routine.
To get the best results for your horse, we strongly recommend applications are carried out by professional trained farriers, trimmers, or vets.
Your horse’s hooves need a regular trim before the FormaHoof application, which we highly recommend is carried out by a suitably qualified person.

We recommend our Barefoot Mould for rehab and horses in work and Traction Mould for horses in work or those with minor pathologies. Our Performance Mould should only be used for racehorses and a shoe has to be added to the specially designed lightweight racing application.
Depending upon the natural rate of hoof growth and wear through work, the application can usually stay on for the length of your horse’s regular shoeing cycle. Whilst some horses may have a 4-week cycle, the average lasts 6-8 weeks or longer.
FormaHoof will clearly NOT cure a disease like laminitis or founder, but can support your horse during their rehabilitation by providing drug-free comfort and help to prevent further damage.
How long this will take depends on the condition your horse is in. Most horses can return to barefoot within very few application cycles, whilst severe cases may need a little longer.
If your horse is in an overall condition where riding is allowed, there is no reason why you shouldn’t ride in FormaHoof.
Once the hoof is cleaned and prepared well and the product is applied correctly, FormaHoof provides a clean, moisture controlled and puncture proof environment which prevents the growth of anaerobic bacteria and the development of thrush.
The FormaHoof application is firstly split at both toe quarters with a rasp and then the edge is levered down with a nipper, enabling it to be easily pulled off the hoof.
The polyurethane used by FormaHoof is not a strong adhesive and it does not form a strong chemical bond to the hoof like other products do. FormaHoof sets in the shape of the hoof, being wider at the bottom, which helps ensure it stays in place.
