Hoof Packing

Some of the most common reasons to use hoof packing include:

  • To help toughen the sole when a horse transitions from being shod to going barefoot.
  • To help reduce hoof soreness after hard work or riding on hard/rocky ground
  • To help draw moisture out of the feet when hooves are too wet.
  • To help make excessively dry hooves pliable and healthy.  Information on hoof conditioners can be found here.
  • To help relieve sole bruising, abscesses and other medical ailments.  Information on the causes, and treatment of Thrush can be found here.
