Hoof care products overview

This month, along with our shampoo's and bathing accessories feature, we also focus on products for a healthy hoof.

Common hoof conditions; such as cracks, corns, abscesses and bruising can compromise even the healthiest of horse, at any time of year.

With the months to come promising drier weather (haha we here you say) which in turn brings harder ground, we've rounded up a selection of hoof products designed to help to support optimum hoof health.
