The hoof's natural design is remarkable and plays a key role in the overall health of Your horse

Barefoot is the most natural and healthy state for horses’ hooves. However, modern equine management and associated hoof weaknesses has meant that a perfectly healthy and well-shaped hoof is extremely difficult to achieve and keep, until now!

Damage From Nails Horse's Hoof

Nail holes, especially old ones, weaken the hoof wall and are an open door for bacterial migration which can impact future hoof health immensely. The images here show a healthy natural wall (barefoot or non-invasive) in comparison to a wall which has clear signs of damage around the nail holes.

FormaHoof Benefits For Horses Hoof

FormaHoof addresses many of the limitations of existing products on the market, such as traditional metal shoes or hoof boots, and allows any hoof imbalances, structural weaknesses or conformation challenges to be quickly and effectively corrected, to give the best chance possible for a lame horse to return to full soundness and for sound horses to stay that way.

The unique, patented, liquid fit FormaHoof moulding process creates a non-invasive, three dimensional, protective and supportive overlay on the horse’s hoof. By recreating the form of a perfectly healthy, balanced hoof, FormaHoof delivers immediate results, assisting farriers in the fight against a multitude of hoof-related disorders, from Laminitis and White Line Disease to Hoof Cracks, High-Low Syndrome and Foal Limb Deformities

What Other Owners Say

Thanks to FormaHoof, I can finally start riding my horse again. We have been struggling with my horse’s hooves for almost his entire life. He turns 12 this year so it’s been a while. I’ve had the best farriers for many years and we’ve given him time to rest his hooves from iron shoes many times, but it always comes back to bad hoof walls (white line disease).

When I say we’ve tried everything I really mean everything so honestly this feels like a lifesaver for me and my horse! I’m so glad that we found out about this amazing product and I hope everyone with similar problems is considering to try it. I just wish that we found out about it earlier, it would have saved me a lot of money and grey hair, but better late than never.

Tex had never taken a lame step on soft soil but was noticeably tender on firm ground. After an ice storm, he bruised his feet terribly and I resorted to pads, icing them, topical hardeners etc. Dr. Emily Hood led me to FormaHoof and Tex is now on his second application, is exercised at a long trot daily and is sooo sound! Secondary issues like soreness he always seemed to have on his top line have also resolved. Icing on the cake is that he’s winning / placing with the elite horses now!

James Commander, Horse Owner & Barrel Racer, Oklahoma, USA

I have no idea how this technology helps and is so magical. All I know is my boy was in so much pain, next to zero heels, his toes were growing way out of shape, he had a hoof fracture and was limping bad. Dr Emily Hood turned out to be a blessing for both my boy Raymond and me. After 2 cycles (4 month), we could both enjoyed a small trail ride again.

Shout out to FormaHoof, Eli walked in the snow more comfortable than ever has in the past… His FormaHoof ‘shoes’ didn’t accumulate any snow balls and barely tracked snow into the barn’

Jan Snyder, Horse Owner, Ohio/USA

I purchased FormaHoof for my own horses as we live in a extremely isolated non horsey town in the very northwest Western Australia it is not possible to get podiatry farriers or at times any farriers where we are, I had taken my horses for podiatry x-rays due to some subtle soundness issues which confirmed NPA, with the help and support from FormaHoof and by watching and studying online videos, I taught myself and convinced my partner to help me do the applications, after the initial first go (which got all the bugs out and a few mistakes made) I’m happy to say that it is a really straightforward process and as a complete amateur, it shows how usable this product really is.

Without FormaHoof I don’t believe we would ever been able to correct the issues my horses were having in our isolated situation we are. We also live on the hardest rockiest ground you can imagine and I was sceptical that it would hold up on it along with weekly trips to work the horses at the beach but my scepticism has been proven wrong, thank you FormaHoof for a fantastic innovative product! If I can do this anyone can!

Kate Redmond, Horse Owner, WA, Australia

I have been looking at FormaHoof for the past six months, with getting a horse that needed hoof care due to bad care and rotations of around 50%, I was ready to try the system out myself. Well with reluctance to do myself, I did more research and found Lindsay Holland on a FormaHoof page. I contacted her, discuss my situation and set an appointment.

Well the short story is, I had a lame horse when she showed up and had a mostly sound horse immediately after FormaHoof application. I say mostly sound because he was a little sore from his previous condition. Lindsay is a very knowledgeable and a skilled farrier, she took a horse that was reluctant to walk out of his stall to a horse that just kept doing laps around the dry lot. What an awesome product!!
