As riders and online shoppers, we know it can be tough to buy a new bridle or pair of boots without trying them on. That's why we moved the fitting room to your living room (or barn)! From breeches to blankets, if you or your horse can try it on, you can return it, free! Just use the pre-paid return label included in your order within 60 days from the purchase date. And of course, please make sure the item is in like-new condition with original packaging (we said 'fitting room', not 'war room'!).

Why We Love This

Packed in the hoof cavity, Forshner's Hoof Packing provides vital oils and medication for the prevention and treatment of hardened frogs, contracted heels, hoof dryness and infection.

    Forshner's Hoof Packing is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 6.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this stuff I've been using this stuff for awhile now, got it for my old horse that had horrible sensitive feet and continue to use it on my current show jumper after a lot of impact. Told my farrier I was using it and his response was "that stuff is great!" I was glad it had his approval as he's one of the best.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this stuff I've been using this over the other brands forever. I use this to pack my horses feet at horse shows and I think it works just amazing. When I told my farrier that is what I was using he told me he wouldn't use anything else.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for the price. Typically we use Magic Cushion, but when traveling around the country to multiple horse shows, our bucket of Forshner's has been perfect. It is great for when the footing is a little hard or we're spending a lot of time on concrete or gravel. Definitely makes a big difference at a better price than Magic Cushion!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Product! This product was highly recommended by my farrier. After using this product I saw a dramatic improvement in the contracted heels of my horse. I use this product in conjunction with SmartSox and SmartHoofUltra.
