Benefits of Using a Hoof Stand

 When it comes time for trimming or shoeing, it is crucial to ensure the comfort of both yourself and the horses. A hoof stand is an essential tool that can help simplify your work while easing physical stress; continue reading to learn more.

 

What is a Hoof Stand?

A hoof stand is a device that is designed to comfortably and neatly hold the hoof off the ground and in place for farrier work.

Rather than straining to hold the hoof and making use of only one of your hands, a hoof stand neatly holds the hoof in place - removing strain from your back and knees and providing you with the full use of both of your hands.

 

Hoof Stand Benefits

There are several notable benefits of using a hoof stand, including:

 

  • Safe and sturdy support for the horse
  • Allow the horse to relax their weight without placing any of it on you
  • Effortlessly hold the hoof off the ground while keeping both hands free
  • Reduce the risk of accidental injury while working
  • Ideal for elder horses that are in need of additional support during farrier work
  • Relieve pressure or pain from your knees and back
