Overview

Why We Love This

Magic Cushion Hoof Packing is a natural anti-inflammatory and analgesic hoof packing for the equine athlete. It provides fast-acting and long-lasting relief to reduce pain and swelling in the horse’s sole and frog. It starts working to reduce hoof heat within one hour and effects can last for up to 24 hours. Magic Cushion is trusted by top farriers to help with soreness resulting from the everyday rigors of training, laminitis, white line disease, pedal osteitis, abscesses, navicular syndrome, bruising, corns, canker, and any concussive trauma to the hoof tissues. 

Formulated for use before, during, or after hard work or competition, it can be used under a protective pad or simply applied with a wrap.

Made in the USA.

Magic Cushion Hoof Packing is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 75.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from This stuff is awesome My mare had a good bruise last spring and Magic Cushion helped heal it fast so that I could keep riding. Our ground gets really hard in the summer so I pack her front feet after every jump school and it keeps her feeling her best!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Therapeutic properties I bought this product for my little mini who has chronic reoccurring laminitis issues. It became so bad Hollywood do is lay down in the deep bedding but still Enjoyed eating. After one day of applying the magic cushion little Maxi was upstanding in the morning for his breakfast two days later he was out walking in his paddock and I will continue this for the rest of his life! high praises!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product Love how easy this is to use and how well it stays in my horses hooves. I clean and dry the soles of my horses feet. Pack the goo in there and then press fine shavings over the top. No wrapping necessary.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's really Magic I use this all the time for pulled shoes, stone bruises or simply pack it in for a night when the ground is extra dry and hard. I have a sensitive OTTB with thin soles so this is a must-have for me.
Date published: 2018-06-14
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works well & easy to use. I recently bought this product on the recommendation of a long time horseman who has successfully used this over the years. My horse had a bruised sole and this helped him recover well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE IT! Bought this after a friend suggested it to relieve pain cause by a pretty bad case of thrush and loved it. My gelding had become so sore that he was visibly in pain just standing there, but within minutes of using magic cushion, I could see him returning to himself. Not only did it take away his pain, but it also healed his thrush, as well as bruises and abscesses since then. It healed his thrush in less then a week, after almost a month of trying to get rid of it. Love this product, and will continue to use it on my gelding to keep him happy, and his hooves strong!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works well and easy to use! This is so much nicer to use than the old hoof packing from decades ago. It is less stinky and easier to get into the hoof. I love being able to just pack some shavings on top and it all somehow holds together. It worked well resolving a bruise/possible abcess. I will have this in my tack box from now on.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Seems to work great ! Noticed pain relief right away from my horse and his feet are doing much better since I switched to using this. The shipping was fast and it was the best price around !
Date published: 2017-06-30
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Reduces heat in hoof I bought this a few weeks ago. My horse had one hoof that was significantly hotter then his other feet. My farrier swears by this product so I bought it. It seems to have worked well, reducing inflammation, or heat in the hoof.
Date published: 2017-06-14
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great to keep in the trunk at shows My horses front feet get sore, especially on different footing. This is a great easy to use hoof packing to pack their feet at horse shows and have them feel great they next day. And not wrapping needed in the stall!
Date published: 2017-02-08
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not as great as I had hoped I bought this for my (then) newly barefoot TB. The first problem was the tub came in the mail on its side so the goop leaked out and had the whole box in a sticky mess, thankfully it didnt ruin my other purchases (farriers fix), so I had to use alcohol and many paper towels to get the goop off the side of the magic cushion and farriers fix bottle, then the application is super messy, it got all over my horse's pastern, super sticky with shavings covering his feet, and didnt stay in the frog crevices overnight like it was supposed to, I put plastic wrap over the Magic Cushion, vet wrapped, and then an equifit hoof packing tape over it (he was in a stall overnight) and it still oozed out and was not very effective at relieving his feet after a hard preliminary stadium course on packed ground. really disappointed. I'm now using Hawthorne's Sole Packs and am very satisfied with those.
Date published: 2016-12-27
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome product Have use this for years when my horses get tender feet. Very sticky so you usually don't even have to wrap the hoof to keep the medicine in.
Date published: 2016-10-22
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Basically full $35 tub is going in the garbage I bought the large tub of this as it had great reviews and is a reputable brand. It is very loose and sticky (even when thoroughly stirred) and was a real mess to apply as most of it sticks to the glove. Application instructions say not to use a diaper as padding to prevent the product from being absorbed by the padding material. As recommended I used a piece of brown paper immediately over the poultice, followed by duct tape and vetwrap, and then more duct tape. As I was doing the final duct tape wrap, a wet brown liquid started oozing out through the vetwrap near the heel bulb and caused the duct tape not to adhere at all. I did not over apply the product...it is just too loose and wet to stay in place. The next day the product was all caked like sticky sap all over the hair on my horse's pastern and next to impossible to clean off. My trainer had some Hawthorne Sole Pack she let me use instead and it was exactly what a proper sole pack product should be--it is a very firm but malleable clay-like substance that is easy to apply and easily packs into the hoof. Furthermore the next day during reapplication I found no sticky mess on hair to deal with, and much of the product actually still present inside the hoof grooves AND my horse is definitely less sore after getting trimmed a bit short. The tub of Hooflex Magic Cushion is going in the garbage--I don't even want to offer to give it away for someone else at the barn to use because of my bad experience. I'm only using Hawthorne Sole Pack from here on out!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Magical Hoof Packing I used this product twice, once in 2013 when my sensitive OTTB developed a sub solar abscess (he was being ridden more and barefoot). Farrier said he was foundering and long story short, lots of X-rays showed a massive abscess under the sole. Why won't farriers listen to us when we know the problem. The vet told me it could take months to heal up. Last resort, I put this magic potion on for 36 hours and turned him out and viola, the abscess broke through. I used this same container last month when my 28 year old OTTB lost a shoe and managed a subsolar too. Farrier said the abscess was dead because it was black but I didn't believe him and he told me not to use this product because I would "burn his hoof and blister him". My horse could barely walk, wouldn't eat and unhappy. I had enough and slapped this stuff in a diaper (not recommended by manufacturer) because it was padded and soft and quick to throw on because he couldn't hold his foot up for more then 10 seconds. Basket weaved a duct tape shell and slapped that on too and left it on for 48 hours with turnout. Within 12 hours my horse could put weight on his leg again. 48 hours later, I removed the diaper and the smell was horrific but it cleaned the hoof so well and abscess had finished draining and was done. 3 days later, he was well enough to put a shoe back on and really heal up. Without this stuff, my Jackson would have suffered with just Epsom salts and soaking as my farrier recommended. I believe in this stuff and stand behind it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Soreness Relief! Twice in the last year my horse has been sore after a trim. He was barefoot the first time and this last time he has shoes. Whether barefoot or shod, Magic Cushion offers him relief and he's able to walk comfortably.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this stuff Can't live with out this stuff when the ground is hard
Date published: 2016-06-16
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really helps with comfort! I have used this for both my 4 year old Paint gelding and for my 28 year old Paso Fino gelding. This product helps to alleviate minor pain and heat in the hoof, and it really helps my older guy move around better. Maybe it's just the way I use this stuff, but it seems to go kind of quickly. I could be applying too much though, as I've never used this product before. I still feel that it is worth the money and does what it advertises. Just be sure to wear gloves as this is a very sticky product!
Date published: 2016-04-15
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love this This is my go to for any hoof soreness my horse develops or after a hard XC run. Really helps pull out any soreness he might have. While I love the product, it is SUPER sticky and it can be hard to get the lid on and off. You have to make sure the lid is on tight too so the product doesn't dry out but getting it off again requires some muscles! Beyond that I love this stuff.
Date published: 2016-03-28
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Horrible My horse's hooves were sore. I packed this into his hooves to relieve the pain BUT IT CAUSED AN ALLERGIC REACTION. I've never seen him in so much discomfort in my life. Not only that but it is SO messy and god forbid it gets on your skin or your horse-it won't come off. Complete waste of $50 and now my horse is suffering because of it...
Date published: 2016-03-18
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love the product I use this product on my horse after each day of competition when showing on a hard surface. It works great but the packaging is VERY difficult to open after the first use.
Date published: 2016-02-22
Rated 5 out of 5 by from A must in my tack room! My AQHA gelding has a unique personality and terrible hooves as well as an OTTB with typical t-bred hooves . I use this product any time they lose a shoe or experiences any soreness. It has always improved any situation and made them more comfortable.
Date published: 2015-11-20
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Should have purchased from SP Great product. I use it to pack feet at shows when horses feet are taking a beating on hard surfaces and standing in stalls with out mats. Easy to put in. I just roll a golf ball sized amount of product out and pack it in to the hoof. Usually just patting it with shavings is enough to keep it in at horse shows. For guys that walk a lot I do the paper bag with vet wrap method. If horses lay down you'll see it on their elbows. Use alcohol or baby oil to remove. Wish I had seen smartpaks pricing before I bought this locally. I paid $69.99 and smartpak has over $20 cheaper and free shipping. Lesson learned- check smartpak first!
Date published: 2015-07-13
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Stays in well! May help? I purchased this for my occasionally sole-sore mare. Clean the hoof well, then apply (with gloves) Magic Cushion, then pack with sawdust. I then turn her out! You'll still be picking it out of the feet 24-48 hours later (if the ground is dry)! I'm not sure she experienced any pain relief, but I do think this stuff helps keep the moisture in the foot more balanced during the dry summer, when horses are stomping flies on the hard ground. I'll continue to use if she seems sore, because, hey, I bought a bucket.
Date published: 2015-06-03
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome product! Bought this product after a recommendation by both my farrier and vet for my navicular gelding. He has had periods of significant lameness and this has really helped him. I've been using it for almost a year and pack him whenever he is showing signs of soreness or we make trimming changes. We removed his shoes a couple months ago and the Magic Cushion has made the transition much easier for him. It is very sticky so I always wear gloves when applying it but baby oil will wash it right off. I usually pack a golf-ball sized scoop into his hooves, cover with vet wrap, and then wrap with duct tape and reapply if needed in a day. I prefer to keep my guy out 24/7 and I've had no problem with it staying on during turn out. When I do bring him in due to weather I always pack him to help make him more comfortable. It is a bit expensive but you get a lot of use out of it and I would say it is definitely worth the money. Recommended to anyone dealing with navicular or soreness issues.

Date published: 2014-12-23
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome product! We have used this product for years. It's great for packing hooves at horse shows and at home. I have used other similar products but none works as well as Magic Cushion.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really works well! I have a young mare who has some navicular changes....she had been in shoes for a few months with a new farrier. Sadly, he crippled her. We needed to pull the shoes and she was so, so uncomfortable. I purchased some Magic Cushion and have been packing her feet nightly -- she is so sound and comfortable!! I am so happy to say how wonderfully it has worked for her!
