    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works good My horse has constantly battled with thrush. We have been using this product for 6 months. Since starting this product his hoof has began to grow stronger and healthier. We still have a long way to go til his hooves are completely healthy but we appear to be on the right track.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Purchase Ever When I got my OTTB Mare, her feet didn't look so good. I saw people at my barn using this so I thought I would give it a shot. She used to throw shoes every 2 weeks, and after almost 1 year of being on this she hasn't thrown another shoe. You won't see results overnight, but if you're patient, you will be rewarded.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hooves Noticeably Improved Have had my mare on this for about 5 months. Took a while to see improvement, but now even the farrier is impressed with her hoof health. When she started they were in bad shape and now they are picture perfect. We got a gelding about 2 months ago and started him on this supplement also, but it's too soon to see real results, but we think the hooves on both horses are healthier looking. Highly recommend!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great supplement! Been using it on my OTTB for the last year. Started off with horrible, crumbly hooves that wouldn't hold shoes for the world. Soft soles, no heels, white line was almost non-existent, hoof wall was SO thin it was almost comical. This supplement, combined with good groceries, has transformed his hooves. He's literally gone from a 00 shoe to a 1!! Yes, it does take time to work, but I saw improvement within 3 months. My farrier is overjoyed. No more extra trips to the barn to re-shoe my horse, and his hooves are LOVELY now!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Hoof Supplement Ever I have had my paint gelding on this product for about 10 months now. He used to pull his shoes off at least every 2-3 weeks and it got to the point we had to glue his shoes on. It took several months to see how this product was going to work since obviously his hooves needed to grow out before we could nail shoes on again. It was amazing! His hooves grew out so fast we only had to deal with glued on shoes a couple times and his hooves are so strong now that he actually went 9 weeks without loosing a shoe over his winter break! I would definitely recommend this and if I have another horse with hoof problems I will put them on this immediately.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product When I purchased my horse his feet were split and broken and couldn't hold a shoe. The first thing I put him on was Horseshoer's Secret. There was a wonderful turn around with his feet; no splitting and able to hold a shoe. About a year later, I put him on a new feed which stated no supplement was needed for feet; it was contained in the feed so I discontinued using Horseshoer's Secret. Within 6 to 8 months, his feet were turning bad again. I have started him back on Horseshoer's Secret and have no doubt his feet will return to their wonderful condition.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Hoove care Product!! I was very skeptical about using anything in dry form for my horses dry hooves. HORSESHOER'S SECRET is the best product I have ever used. I recommend this to anyone who have dry, cracked hooves. No more loosing shoes! The Farrier was impressed on the first six weeks.Awsome product

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from No Change My horses ate this fine but my farrier says its not working. Seemed to have better luck with Omega Horseshine. My mare has thin soles and I thought this would help but he said she must need more of something that was in Horseshine because she did better on that

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from ME & MY HORSE LOVE THIS!!!! My mare had a crack in her hoof from her hairline all the way to the bottom and it was deep and sore we fed her Horseshoer's Secret and within a few weeks we were already seeing an improvement not in just the one bad one but in all of her hooves, shes a VERY picky eater and she ate this stuff up no problem even without it being mixed with feed. This is an AMAZING product!!!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Product My off the track thoroughbred came to me after being off two years recovering from an injury he sustained while racing and his feet were a mess. In fact the first time I had shoes put on him he developed an abscess because his hoof wall were so thin. I immediately put him on this product and within a few months his hoof growth and strength was so remarkable that my farrier told me that whatever I had done was fantastic & he never seen hooves in such good condition in such a short time. I continue to use the product on a daily basis.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Buy! This product has helped my horses hooves remarkably. His feet don't hold shoes very well and are always cracking and chipping. Since starting to use this you can see a very noticeable change where his hooves are growing. And while his feet have not completely grown out from all the current chips they are still much stronger. My ferrier has given his hooves a ton of compliments after starting this. Best of all my gelding is a very very picky eater and he eats this right out of your hand! This is also one of the cheaper hoof supplements I was able to find. This would have to be one of the best supplements to buy especially for the price.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Horseshoer's Secret The "Secret" is that this product works. Our farrier reports that during the winter our two horses are the only ones she trims that have siginificant growth.Our horses had significant issues with hoof quality prior to using Horseshoer's secret and changing to natural hoof trimming.Our farrier switched based upon the changes she had seen in our horses hooves. I think that says it all.Other benefits: better mane, tail and coat quality. It is a product that works. Buy it, use it!!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A brand new step! I own 2 rescue horses, both came to me with horrid feet. You can see in both horse hooves a timeline of when I started them on this product. My vet to my farrier have commented on their noticable improvement! Would reccommend to anyone who wants to see overall hoof improvement. My only note would be, be patient! The hoof takes about a year to renew itself, so results aren't overnight!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice feet :) My horses have had good feet, but never excellent feet and their hooves would sometimes crack and chip. My farrier recommended this product saying that his other clients had good results come from it, and I have to say that I love this stuff. My horses' feet have never been better. They hold their shoes and my one gelding who is usually incredibly sore without his shoes acts like it doesn't hurt as much. I stopped buying this product for a bit last year, not sure why, and sure enough, the cracks and chipping came back. This product really does magic.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! Easy to feed, very palatable, and works better than any of the other hoof supplements I've tried. The concentrated pellets are nice for portability but I prefer the regular pellets b/c my pony is really fat and doesn't get to eat very much and this way I feel like he's getting a bigger dinner lol.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Horseshoer's Secret When we acquired our Belgian gelding, his feet were the worst 'I' have ever seen. Our farrier suggested we put him on Horseshoer's Secret, rasp him every four weeks, during Winter, and shoe all four in the Summer. We have now owned him for two years and the farrier wants to take a movie of the gelding's feet. We ensure we never run out of HS, as it has made such a difference in our boy's feet. We can't recommend HS enough, or often enough. His feet have improved to the extent, it's absolutely noteworthy. We recommend Horeshoer's Secret at the highest level. Thank you for carrying HS and we shall continue to utilize it forever.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Horseshoer's Secret Until we began using Horseshoer's Secret our horses had very poor hoof quality. After using natural hoof trimming and Horseshoer's Secret for at least four years we've seen tremendous improvement in their feet. Their feet are like iron.Our farrier says that, "our horses feet need trimming again before she gets to the end of our drive," Further she says, "none of her clients horses have winter hoof growth like ours."3 ounces per day, 'nuf said! It's a great product.
