Why did you decide to include FormaHoof into your farrier business?
Because it just made sense! If you understand how the hoof as a whole functions, what could be better than giving the horse a perfectly balanced ‘prosthetic’ hoof which allows the return of all functions and enhances healing?

What do you like about FormaHoof?
One stop shop! How versatile it is, both in application and for treating so many different problems.

What advantages do you see compared to other shoeing methods?
No lost shoes, improved hoof health all the way around, immediate results and the response from the horses. FormaHoof offers complete 360° 3D support all the way around.

What has changed for your business since starting with FormaHoof products?
Once you experience it, you can’t un-see it! It is the mainstay of hoof protection and rehabilitation for me now.

What do your customers think?
My customers are extremely happy and are amazed by the positive changes their horses have in such a short period. Owners, and more importantly horses, love it.

Why did you decide to include FormaHoof into your farrier business?
To address pathologies that challenge conventional/traditional modalities and which FormaHoof has been proven to successfully resolve.

What do you like about FormaHoof?
All horses respond well to the comfort and 3D support structure and the improvements are a permanent step towards a better life for the horse.

What advantages do you see compared to other shoeing methods?

3D-Farriery addresses the issuers of the whole horse perspective; it’s not just improving feet or getting thru the rider’s “next event” in whatever discipline.

3D-hoof remodeling and rehabilitation will change the entire horse, posture, movement, thoracic sling, top line, muscle tone and most importantly the horses’ belief in him(her) self that they can live in comfort and strength of the movement and be a horse, using their feet and moving is essential to the horses’ function. Sound feet are the key to attaining the goal, it simply fits the horse.

What has changed for your business since starting with FormaHoof products?
My work has always been remedial cases no one can help or a vet referral, FormaHoof has helped in every type of these cases.

I’d say from sharing my work, there’s been a wider basis of contacts worldwide as all levels of horse work are still word-of-mouth and about who you know. My initial training was thru mentorship and hands-on, long before the virtual course options. Hands-on training is crucial for any applicator, therefore I offer training and simply try to pass on the original process and methods as a guideline to success.

Besides in-person training, I also offer mentorships to new applicators and consultations for owners. The limited amount of consultation I assisted with, has been helpful to all that have needed assistance, which has been rewarding for all sides.

What do your customers think?
My customers are simply blown away with the immediate change in their horse. Long term they simply become stronger advocates of the process as it changes the entire horse.

It’s a complete game changer in foot care and I’ve never done a horse that didn’t respond well and liked it.

Why did you decide to include FormaHoof into your farrier business?
I had seen FormaHoof online a few times and as it was not known in Germany and seemed like a very good solution to some big problems, I took the leap. It immediately set my services apart from other farriers in the neighbourhood and gave options to horse owners not formerly possible. FormaHoof has exceeded my expectations.

What do you like about FormaHoof?/What advantages do you see compared to other shoeing methods?
I would like to answer these together. I like it and see the advantage because of the 3-dimensional encapsulation of the hoof FormaHoof and ease of application:

  1. FormaHoof maintains the mechanism of the foot and weighs less than heavy iron (traditional) shoe modifications.
  2. It is non-invasive and can be removed without additional problems (i.e. nail holes breaking away) or having to add additional pads/shoes.
  3. The hoof is protected from the outside environment and I feel the body can better regulate growth and moisture and provide a barrier to urine and mud which enhances growth and speeds recovery time.

 

What has changed for your business since starting with FormaHoof products?
I now work closely with veterinarians and get referrals from other farriers. I’ve been able to make horses comfortable and pain-free which previously had not been attainable.

What do your customers think?
Absolute amazement. I’ve had owners cry with happiness because their horses can walk again. They are all very delighted to share their stories with other owners, via social media and journalists on request, they are always available and enthusiastic to share recommendations.
