Hoof Packing for Horses

Hoof packing is a routine part of equine care, in which farriers apply the hoof packing material to the sole under the under a pad when shoeing a horse. Horse hoof packing is also a temporary process and has many benefits for horse owners. Centaur Forge offers a variety of quality hoof packing for horses, including Forshner's Hoof Packing, Sole Pack Hoof Packing, Hooflex, Oakum, R.A.T.E, and other excellent brands.

Farriers and horse owners alike should stock hoof abscess packing for daily and emergency usage. Hoof packing is designed to draw pain, inflammation, and soreness out of the hoof, keeping your horses more comfortable and saving money on wrapping materials.

Why Use Hoof Packing?

Farriers and horse enthusiasts most commonly use hoof packing while shoeing a horse, but you should keep it around for the following temporary, emergency reasons:

  • If your horse's hooves are extremely dry, hoof packing can help make them more pliable and healthy.
  • Hoof packing material toughens the sole during the transition period from being shod (wearing horseshoes) to going barefoot.
  • It helps draw moisture out of horses' feet if they are too wet.
  • When your horses work too hard or ride on rocky ground, it can bruise or damage the hoof.

Quality hoof packing material from Forshner's or Sole Pack can help you deal with these issues and get your horses back into prime shape.

Hoof Packing Goes Alongside Routine Care

Horse hoof packing is not a replacement for regular care of your horses. While hoof packing can address a variety of conditions. Regular hoof trimming is needed every 4-8 weeks to remove any excess growth, restore balance, and prevent cracking or chipping. Hoof abscess packing is a good temporary fix, but it's not a cure-all and can't take the place of normal care. You also want to ensure that your horse's hoofs are dry, pliable, but not moist. That's a common misconception and can damage and infect your horses.
