Horse hoof care is an important part of maintaining a horse’s well-being. A horse’s hooves should be kept clean and free of debris in order to ensure peak performance.
The use of a hoof pick will aid in loosening and removing dirt and other lodged items. Watch for any indications of pain or tenderness during the hoof cleaning process.
While cleaning each hoof, always check for visible signs of equine injury or hoof disease and seek medical treatment if necessary.
