Help Your Horse To Overcome Low Heels And Thin Soles

Let’s take the steps together to help your horse on the way to healthy hooves.
We are here every step of the way.

Crushed heels often result in long-toes and thin soles, but with FormaHoof horses can quickly recover the normal, healthy function of their feet. The three-dimensional fit reduces pressure on the loading structures of the hoof, realigns the bony column, and effects a better blood supply to the foot. This gives the horse’s body the best chance to re-grow the heel structure, gain sole-depth, and correct the suspension system for the foot within a shortest time.

Low Heels / Thin Soles Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

To get the best results for your horse, we strongly recommend applications are carried out by professional trained farriers, trimmers, or vets.

The correct size is two simple measurements away. You will find a detailed sizing guide on our FormaHoof Size page.

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 doesn’t need to be a forever solution, but it provides effective support, faster recovery time due to enhanced hoof growth and provides a safe and hassle-free transition to barefoot or traditional shoeing.

How long this will take depends on the condition your horse is in. Most horses can overcome pathologies such as thin soles and crushed heels during very few (1-3) application cycles, whilst other conditions 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.
