Hoof Support

    • Thin walls, thin soles, flaking, cracking, chipping, breaking, splitting, or slow hoof growth? These can be caused by dietary deficiency, causing discomfort or lameness for your horse, and worry and lost riding time for you. What's worse is that a compromised hoof then provides an ideal site for bacterial and fungal pathogens to take hold.

      Stop these problems occuring by building a strong, robust,healthy hoof.

      With active ingredients such as BIOTIN and METHIONINE, HOOF SUPPORT has all the essential amino acids, vitamins and minerals your horse needs for healthy hoof growth.
