Finding the correct size for your reusable FormaHoof mould
Two easy steps to measure your horses hooves and get the correct size for your reusable FormaHoof mould
Clean the hoof and measure either the length or width of the hoof as shown in the diagram. Do not include the bulbs of the heel when measuring.
Check the FormaHoof sizing chart and select the mould size that best fits with your horse’s measurements, making sure to use the correct units. If, due to an underlying condition, there are significant differences in the length and width of the horse’s hoof, always take the larger measurement. Regular is the best option for round shaped front feet. Slimline is the best option for hind feet and for narrow shaped front feet. Not sure about your size? You can reach one of our FormaHoof experts via email or the WhatsApp button on the website for guidance. We strongly recommend to include photos of your horse’s hooves and the measurements in your communication, so our experts can assist you faster.

My horse has very narrow front feet, the moulds look very round, will they still fit?
Different breeds of horses have different shaped feet. Thoroughbreds and Warmbloods tend to have a round front hoof shape and a more oval-shaped hind. Quarter Horses and Arabian breeds tend to have a more oval shape, in both front and hind.⠀
Our Regular (formerly knows as front) and Slimline (formerly knows as hind) FormaHoof moulds have been designed with these variations in mind. If your horse has a narrow, oval-shaped hoof, the hind FormaHoof mould pattern will offer the best fit.⠀
For horses with Club Feet, the Slimline mould shape works best. However, an additional anchoring method may be required to secure the FormaHoof application. In a well-shaped hoof, FormaHoof is kept in place primarily because of its shape – because the hoof is wider at the bottom than the top, FormaHoof cannot slide off the hoof. However, as the shape of a Club Foot is reversed, we need an additional mechanical anchor to keep the application in place. This can be done using short screw heads screwed into the wall, or additional notches trimmed into the wall to create an anchor for the FormaHoof application to adhere to.⠀
