A superior equine hoof supplement for optimum hoof, coat & skin health.
Progressive Earth’s acclaimed Pro Hoof supplement is a high quality, low sugar and starch, blend of vitamins, minerals, and amino acids, specifically formulated to promote the growth of healthy well connected hoof wall, strong sound hooves, shiny coat & healthy skin.
Pro Hoof is manufactured in a UFAS (Universal Feed Assurance Scheme), BETA NOPS (Naturally Occurring Prohibited Substances), FEMAS (Feed Materials Assurance Scheme), ISO 22000 ( Food Safety Management System) certified state-of-the-art premix manufacturing facility. Pro Hoof is produced using the highest quality feed assured ingredients under strictly controlled production conditions and conforms to the requirements of EU and UK legislation governing the manufacture of animal feeding stuffs.
Our high specification formulas as carefully balanced using optimum ratios defined by the National Research Council. Targeting only the deficient minerals in forage.
We have also added 15g of MSM: An important component of connective tissue, playing a particularly important role in hooves, bones, joints and skin health.
A concentrated form of Yea-Sacc (TS) is included to support gastrointestinal health and integrity.
This product is ideal for those horse owners who want to balance their horses diet but are unable to formulate a diet based on a bespoke forage analysis. Pro Hoof can also be used as a building block feed balancer for which to formulate a bespoke feeding plan.
We recommend additional micronised linseed meal throughout the winter months or if a horse is fed predominantly hay/haylage , this is for the essential fatty acids that a horse may be short of when grass is restricted. Essential Fatty Acids cannot be manufactured within the body & must be present in the diet.

Please note our guidance on the use of Salt: We do not add salt directly to our formulations.
Chloride in salt is naturally quite abrasive. So adding salt can lead to rapid degradation of vitamins used in our mixes if exposed to light, moisture and heat etc.
Addition of salt could considerably reduce the shelf life of our products. Our products are packed and sealed in carefully controlled packing facilities at our mixing house. We cannot guarantee how products are stored once opened by our customers.
We have a fast turnover of products and all our mixes benefit from long shelf lives. Customers can feel confident that their products will remain fresh and free from degradation.
Our Balancers and Premixes are formulated with the specialist guidance of World leading nutritionists at the Professional Mixing House Company we use.
We recommend all horses should have free access to salt. However, a salt lick alone cannot be relied upon to cover maintenance & sweat requirements. Many horses do not choose to use the lick enough.
The amount of salt needed is variable depending on how much the horse sweats.
For example a 500 kg Horse needs 10g of sodium per day (25g of salt) for maintenance needs, this is without exercise or sweating on hot days.
1 – 2 tablespoons of salt per day, added to the horses feed is a reasonable amount to cover maintenance requirements.
Working horses will require additional electrolytes. Dissolving the salt in water & spraying on to hay, can be an alternative option for picky eaters.
How long will a bag last?
A 1.8 kg bag of Pro Hoof will last approximately 31 days when fed at the rate of one 75 ml scoop (ie 58 grams) per day.
A 3.6 kg bag of Pro Hoof will last approximately 62 days when fed at the rate of one 75 ml scoop (ie 58 grams) per day.
Feed 1 x 75 ml scoop of Pro Hoof per day for an average 500 Kg horse.
Feed 1/2 to 1 x 75 ml scoop of Pro Hoof per day for an average 300 Kg pony.
We always advise with any new feed/supplement/dietary change that it should be made gradually due to the horse’s sensitive digestive system. As advised by the national research council.
Pro Hoof is a powdered supplement which we recommend is mixed in a soaked base feed. We do not advise feeding any powdered supplement in chop. Suitable feeds are: soaked mash (alpengrun mash, fast fibre, pink mash etc), soaked hay cobs, beet pulp or a suitable soaked feed of you choice.
