|Laminitis and founder are a great source of pain for the horse and his/her owner. The horse suffers physically while the owner suffers emotionally and financially. The Hoof Cinch is here to change all of this. The Hoof Cinch is an affordable, safe and painless way to fix founder. PLEASE TRY TO FIND THE CAUSE FOR THE FOUNDER. IF YOU DON'T FIX THE UNDERLYING CAUSE YOU WILL NOT FIX THE FOUNDER.
Laminitis can be caused by many variables. At Hoof Cinch we recommend having a good farrier and veterinarian that work well together, work on your horse. While the cause for the laminitis is being sought, the Hoof Cinch can relieve the pain and start the corrective process.
The Hoof Cinch works on any stage of laminitis. It will help a horse that is currently in acute stages of laminitis as well as horses that foundered years ago or even your chronic laminitic horse that has bouts with laminitis every year. Please find and treat the underlying causes.
In the treatment of founder, there is a lot of misinformation and unproven theories about the horse hoof and can make it difficult for the owner, the veterinarian and farrier to determine the proper treatment for the foundering horse.
The Hoof Cinch just requires the hoof to be trimmed with a slight elevation of the heels It is beneficial to leave the horse's heels elevated as it reduces the pull of the deep flexor and increases the blood flow in the hoof. The horse MUST NOT be walking directly on its soles.
The hoof wall construction is a marvel in itself. The two types of tubulars allow the hoof to flex but remain a very solid object. The screws placed in this structure do not allow bacteria to enter and do not compromise the structure. Many horses have been treated with the Hoof Cinch and not once has there been any problems with the hoof wall due to the screws.

The Standard Hoof Cinch size will fit most full size horse breeds. It comes in a pair with all screws needed to attach it to the hoof wall. Shoe size 0 to 4.
