Product Overview

All of the nutrients needed for hoof health

Over 30 years of equine nutritional research, clinical trials and field testing have gone into every cup of Farrier's Formula®. While no single nutrient is the key to a healthy hoof, studies show that most horses with hoof problems respond to better overall nutrition. Farrier's Formula® provides lecithin, DL-methionine, ascorbic acid, copper, zinc, biotin, and other nutrients that allow the horse's liver and hoof corium to build and assemble a highly crosslinked hoof wall that is denser and more resistant to cracking or drying out. Farrier’s Formula® works because it furnishes all the nutrients known to be deficient if there is a problem with hoof growth or hoof quality. 

Feed at the replenishment feeding level (6 oz/170 g for a 1,000 lb horse) for horses with hoof problems. After feeding for 6 to 8 months and desired results have been achieved, the adult replenishment feeding level may be reduced to the maintenance feeding level (3 oz/85 g for a 1,000 lb horse).

Made in the USA
  • Contains biotin, lecithin, DL-methionine, copper, zinc, & other nutrients

Farrier's Formula® is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 106.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Noticeable Improvement In Hoofs Our Tennessee Walker had Laminitis last year and we've been nursing him back to health. Part of the regimen suggested by our vet included Farrier's Formula. Since using this over the last few months we are seeing a noticeable improvement in the tone and strength of his hoofs. We will continue to use this indefinitely. Very happy with this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works wonderful! Farrier's formula is tasty for the horses and it's easy to use. I bought it in a Smartpak which makes it even easier! Now I don't have to worry about my horse getting the correct dosage of his supplements everyday, because the strips are so easy for the staff and myself!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of few hoof supplements worth using This is the gold standard for hoof supplements in my opinion. It's pricey, but it works. I generally think using (most) anything else is pouring money away. I've used FF on my own horse and many, many others going back many years of grooming and working in barns. On some, you can literally see the difference. On those with feet that are in decent shape to start with, I find that there is greater growth between cycles, even in winter. With regards to my current horse, both my vet and farrier say "whatever you're doing, keep doing it" almost every time I see them -- and he's a thoroughbred with thoroughbred feet.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from good hoof product, not so much for my horse I haven't used this product long to really see if it would make a difference for my horses cracked hooves, but after a few weeks of being on it, I noticed my horse became quite hot and way more energetic than normal on it. He's usually quite slow so it was at first a good change, but he started rushing fences, me unable to slow him down, etc. Taking him off this product to see if he gets back to normal. I'm sure for some horses this is great to use, but just wasn't ideal for my horse and myself.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does a Great Job! My thoroughbred has terrible feet and is notorious for pulling shoes. Farriers formula was recommended by my Farrier and I wouldn't use anything else. His feet look better than ever.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Farrier is Happy My farrier came to trim my Andaluz horse, and raved about how his hooves are-- condition and growth. He was the one who recommended I include Farrier's Formula in his diet, and is very happy with the results. I live in Ecuador so have to bring whatever horse products back in my suitcase. This was worth it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Been Using FF for Nearly 10 Years I've been using Farrier's Formula for nearly 10 years on Thoroughbreds, which have notoriously poor feet. My horses are all barefoot and have lovely hooves. On occasion, I've tried other products for a few months to save some money or to try something new, but I always came back to it because nothing compares to Farrier's Formula. To see the full benefit of Farrier's Formula, your horse has to be on it for at least 6 months or longer. It takes about 9 months for the hoof to totally grow out. Depending on the level of nutrition in a horse's diet, it may take a year or longer to see results, but you'll know when you've reached that point. My youngest rescue mare just started to get the glossy coat and better feet this spring after about 15 months on Farrier's Formula. I'll give a new horse one cup for the first couple of months and then taper down. I give all my horses 1/4 cup as a maintenance dose every day. Two of my horses are used for endurance, and they have rock-crushing barefoot hooves. While I do give the endurance horses about 1/3 cup during competitive season, if I give them more, their feet need to be trimmed too often (yes, that's how fast Farrier's Formula make their feet grow). I use the regular formula because my horses (yes, even my endurance horses!) get no grain. They *think* they're getting grain when it's only Farrier's Formula. Don't tell! Barefoot is so much better for the horse (and less expensive for you!), and this product will help you get and keep your horses barefoot.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from TERRIFIC PRODUCT I'm an English/Western trailrider. I have been using Farriers Formula (regular) for at least six or seven years. It is the best pelleted product on the market. I have been nothing short of amazed how terrific my horses' hoofs look with FF, which has become a permanent addition to my horses' diets. My farrier also recommends it, hands down.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My horse was having some issues with hoof growth and my vet recommending that I add this to my mare's supplements. She now grows hoof at a normal rate and both my vet and farrier really like her feet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Product I have used Farrier's Formula for over 10 years and will keep every horse on this product for as long as I own them. I have 3 Thoroughbreds, all off the track, and within 6 to 9 months they all could go barefoot where before they couldn't. I still use front shoes due to the rocks and don't want ragged hooves but this product is worth its price tag. I have lived in 4 different states and every farrier I have ever used loves this stuff and recommends it. All of the horses coats are glossy and if they dapple it makes the dapples richer. Don't wait start this now. Just know it takes a good 6-12 months to see the results in the feet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth EVERY Penny! I have used Farrier's Formula for over 20 years now. Every new horse that comes into the barn shows increased hoof strength & coat gloss within 3 months of being on FF. All my horses are barefoot and are ridden on rough stone bruises, no chipping, no soreness. I highly recommend this product!
Date published: 2013-08-09
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Saw quick improvement! I've had my horse on this since April and I have already seen such improvement in not only the hardness and growth of her hooves, but her coat as well. She came off the track and her feet just broke apart and she had bad rain rot. She looks great! I just bought the double strength to give it a try as I have heard good reviews for that as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product for Hooves We started both of our horses on Farriers Formula 2 months ago and we have seen some results. First, their coats are shiny and the dapples really stand out. We are seeing some new growth in the hooves but you know it takes more than two months for the entire hoof to grow out to give this product a fair review in the hoof area. My farrier loves the product and was extremely happy when he found out we purchased the product as our draft with white hooves was having a hard time with sand cracks and chips. We are very optimistic that this product will work.
