    Horseshoer's Secret is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 108.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Title is good I have an old thorobred with bad hooves. This product works well to help his feet.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from works great I bought this for my 7 year old thoroughbred. He has pancake cracked hooves and this helps a lot. Although his feet will always be cracked, this helps a lot since the farrier is only able to come every 7 weeks. recommend greatly

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product Bought this a few months ago and I am really happy I did!! I can see a difference after a couple of month in my horses feet. They look so much better!!
    Date published: 2016-09-16
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This works!! My farrier recommended I use this,product after my horse repeatedly ripped the same shoe off and took a significant portion of the hoof wall with it. After we started him on Horseshoer's secret, his hooves started growing like crazy, and a couple of cracks in his other feet disappeared quite rapidly. The sole looks better, too! This works, and my horse loves to eat it!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Hooves! My horses have been happy with the flavor of the supplements . I've been happy with the improvement in my horses hooves. This product was recommended to me from our vet.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from My horses feet fell apart I have been on a quest to find the right hoof supplement for my horse. We had tried 2 others and there was very little change, only improvements were really from farrier care. Then I switched to this and within 6 months my horses feet LITERALLY fell apart. No other changes EXCEPT for this product. Now we are having to start over with my horses feet. Its a hot mess and I am really upset about the whole thing.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing! Amazing results!! Moved my horse to a new facility and the first summer was terrible on all the horses hooves! My horses hooves were cracked, dry and could not hold shoes. Within WEEKS I could see huge changes. Highly recommend!!
    Date published: 2016-01-02
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stronger hooves! Prior to using this product my mares hooves would crack easily. They are much stronger. I have used it on other horses in the past with great results. Plus, the horses eat it well.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great source of nutrients for hoof growth My 4 yr old OTTB mare's hoof walls began to thin, and become frail about a year ago. Since using this product in conjunction with another product called bear-cat, not only have her hoof walls grown thicker, but sturdier as well. This product saved my horse; no hoof/ no horse.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from split hoofs My mares feet were always chipping, splitting and since I have had her on Horseshoer's secret for a month, the chipping and splitting have not been as bad. Will review more after she has been on it alittle longer.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love! I bought this a month ago and just started my thoroughbred on it a few weeks ago and can already see the difference. His feet were cracking and dry. This stuff has helped so much already. He has soft feet from being in mud and typical pa weather conditions. I've used it before and loved it!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Farrier commented on how great my horses feet look since starting him on this supplement a year ago.
    Date published: 2015-09-23
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works!! This product shows a noticeable growth in hooves in summer, and much needed hair growth in winter (for my horse who typically had VERY short winter coat). Large Warmblood needed to grow out a hoof crack, and I used this on loading dose for him and saw remarkable results. The shoer was quite surprised that this was the supplement I was using...he couldn't believe it. It's very hot and dry here, and this product seems to have made a BIG difference in keeping shoes on and cracks to a minimum. I highly recommend it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My horse Nolan has been on the Horseshoers Secret for several years. I tried once to go off of the product but his hooves just started cracking again. This product keeps his feet in wonderful condition!

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from helped heal thrush A friend gave me Horseshoer's Secret almost a year ago because all 4 of my horse's feet had thrush from the summer's rain soaked ground. 2 months ago all the thrush was gone. So far this summer it's not returned. I've been giving the maintenance dose of 1/2 cup for the last 6 months and will continue to use this very effective product.
    Date published: 2015-07-21
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good product I have used this product for years and will continue to use it. My horse came to me with hooves in bad condition and now they are in good shape. He loves the taste; sometimes I give it as a treat, but feed it daily as a supplement mixed with his feed. SmartPak offered a good price and the shipping was quick and well packaged.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from So helpful for my pony ! He has had great results in the few months he's been on it .
    Date published: 2015-02-09
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from great supplement, but.... I didn't choose the hoof supplement, but ride the horse. So I want him to keep shoes on. This supplement does that job, but his feet don't look "great"- he's got terrible feet. 4 stars because I think the smartpak brand gives more bang for your buck.
    Date published: 2014-12-24
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great products I have used horseshoer's secret for over 10 years. I use it with all my.horses especially those with soft and week hooves (ottbs especially). Gives the horses nice solid strong feet and I can often pull shoes after a while on the horses that I'm not extensivley eventing.
    Date published: 2014-11-20
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I have had my horse Coco on this for several months and have seen and improvement in his hoof health. His Farrier is also pleased with the results.
    Date published: 2014-11-06
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for our area So, I believe that regionalism has a lot to do with what hoof supplement works best. Different formulas compensate for different soil deficiencies. I know a lot of people swear by Farrier's Formula- we had a boarder whose horse was on the double strength form for almost 3 years and he still had bad feet. After switching to Horseshoer's Secret we saw a vast improvement in 2-3 months! That's why I recommend Horseshoer's Secret to any horse with hoof issues. A couple of our boarders still use SmartHoof or SmartHoof Ultra, and wonder why they don't see improvement. They may work great elsewhere, but not here!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I really like the Smartpac deliveries My mare had poor feet until I started her on Horseshoers Secret. Now she holds the shoes and looks over all healthier. She has been on it for over a year and you'd never think she had had poor hooves.
