Step 1: Clean your horse’s hooves and measure the length and width of the hoof. Take the widest part for the width, do not include the heel bulb for the length. More information about how to measure can be found here.
Step 2: Refer to the FormaHoof sizing chart below and select the FormaHoof Mould size that best fits with your horse’s measurements, making sure to use the correct units.
