FormaHoof Reusable Performance Mould
FormaHoof Reusable Performance Mould Overview
The reusable FormaHoof Performance Mould is specifically designed for racehorses. Resulting applications allow racehorses to quickly and effectively overcome common hoof problems and return to training sooner, whilst maintaining a perfectly balanced, healthy hoof, for optimum performance and long-term soundness.
Due to the super lightweight and thin profile design, FormaHoof Performance Applications must be combined with a regular aluminium/race plate. This also allows the shoeing to comply with regulations.
The reusable Performance Mould allows you to apply a slim and aesthetically pleasing liquid-fit ‘horseshoe’, without the need for hoof-damaging glue, casts, or nails, giving your horse comfortable and durable support, no matter the demands of their training program.
FormaHoof Performance Applications (in combination with the racing plate) are an ideal solution to shoe and support racehorses with weak hoof walls, thin soles and low heels.
Shoeing with FormaHoof Performance Applications are approved by the BRA and many other Racing Authorities around the world.
Features & Benefits of FormaHoof Performance
3D Hoof Protection – Supports the hoof wall by filling in weaknesses in the hoof. The contours of the reusable FormaHoof Mould are designed to produce an application which replicates the perfect healthy barefoot hoof structure.
The most common hoof problems of TB horses are generally conformation faults. The pressure high-performance work puts on those horses’ feet often causes their heels to collapse, which can result in long-toes and thin soles, also called flat tyres. These can now be fixed quickly and corrected with FormaHoof without losing time off the track.
Correcting imbalances – The application creates an artificial sole depth, supporting and protecting the sole or raising low heels.
Fast Solution – FormaHoof applications offer the quickest support for common hoof cracks e.g., quarter cracks can be quickly and effectively treated, whilst keeping the horse comfortable and allowing many to return to exercise.
The Perfect Hoof Angles – FormaHoof applications correct hoof angles and conditions such as Negative Palmar Angle and High/Low Heel Syndrome. If your horse has two different shaped feet, as most do, a correct FormaHoof application will provide the ideal alignment to both feet.
Comfortable Solution – The specially designed FormaHoof Advanced Polymer allows for the hoof’s natural expansion and contraction as the horse moves.
Racehorses in particular tend to suffer from thin soles and low heels, both of which can be easily tackled with FormaHoof. Read more here.
FormaHoof Size Guide
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.
If, due to an underlying condition, there are significant differences in the length and width of the horse’s hoof, always take the larger measurement.
Regular is the best option for round shaped and front feet. Slimline is the best option for narrow shaped and hind feet.
