Caring for Senior horses – A FormaHoof Horse Care Guide

Our horses mean the world to us, they give us everything over the years and we try to comfort them as much as we can during their active times, shouldn't it be the same for them in their retirement?
Most TB horses finish their racing careers with flat, crushed heels, this can lead to negative palmer/planter angles and a complete breakdown in how their feet function. FormaHoof gives an effective and consistent solution to get thoroughbred feet back in shape, increasing their comfort and often helping them to go on and enjoy a second riding career after racing.
