Red Horse: Stronghorn
WHY WE LOVE IT
Not only does Stronghorn do what it says it will, strengthening hooves, it does so without the use of harsh chemicals that could undermine the hoof structure longer term.
This hoof hardener is super easy to apply as it comes in a spray bottle - no more spillages!
Perfect for barefoot horses/ponies and those with hooves prone to breaking.
Red Horse really are the best when it comes to hoof care (and we've tested a fair few brands!). Their specialist knowledge is backed up by extensive research and testing alongside the UK's top farriers.
Stronghorn spray nourishes and toughens horn tissue and is a powerful hoof disinfectant.
Its spray-on formula makes it easy to apply and more convenient than many paint-on hoof hardeners which come in narrow-based bottles that are easy to knock over.
- Zinc Sulphate: a powerful, non-caustic anti-fungal agent
- MSM: a naturally occuring source of sulphur to promote the growth of healthy hoof tissue
- Lemon oil: an essential oil with antibacterial and anti-fungal properties
- Elemi oil: an essential oil with antibacterial and anti-fungal properties.
HOW TO USE
Clean the hoof. Spray product onto the underside of hoof and around any nail clenches, avoiding the frog unless it is very soft. Apply daily until improvement is shown and then phase to weekly applications over time. For best results allow to dry prior to work or turnout.
