Hoof Care

Horse Hoof Care

It is vital that you offer the appropriate level of care for your horse’s hooves. With good husbandry, the majority of potential issues can be avoided. At Wroxham Saddlery, our comprehensive range features the treatments you need to prevent problems from developing, to address any issues and to maintain your horse’s hooves in the best possible condition.

Routine Hoof Care

Apply hoof oil every other day during the summer to help prevent hooves from splitting and cracking. Apply a hoof barrier treatment regularly to reduce the absorption of water and urine. Restrict turnout if the ground is excessively boggy. Keep an eye out for signs of thrush, a bacterial condition which can result from prolonged standing in manure, mud or other wet conditions.

Pick out your horse’s feet every day and check their shoes for any wear and tear. Overgrown and misshapen feet should be examined by your farrier immediately. Arrange for your farrier to attend the yard every four to six weeks to check over your horse.

If you are concerned that your horse’s hooves are abnormal, consult your farrier and your vet at the earliest opportunity.
