Daily care will keep your horse healthy and happy. It is important that you clean out your horse's hooves before and after riding, and even after going out to pasture. A bruise from a stone or an infection can be quickly detected and treated with daily hoof care. Simply remove mud and dirt with a hoof pick from Horze. Damp bedding and other debris can increase the risk of infection. Be sure your horse has clean hooves to avoid problems.
Choose hoof picks with a simple, rubberised handle or a combination pick and brush. A soft handle lets you hold the hoof pick firmly in your hand while removing dirt, mud or grit from your horse's hooves. Maintain optimal hoof health and keep your horse comfortable with daily cleaning. Regularly removing debris will ensure hooves remain healthy and ward off possible injury or infection from a twig or stone entering the hoof. Check for loose shoes by grooming the hooves daily.
