Formahoof Shaping the future of hoof care
Formahoof is a company that’s been a decade in the making. Co-founded by farrier and inventor, Robert Stevenson, whose passion for equine rehabilitation led to the creation of a revolutionary range of hoof care products. His pursuit for treating common equine hoof conditions, some which can be fatal, encouraged him to collaborate with a 3D printing company to develop the range of products whilst he was working as a farrier in the UAE.
The way the product works is that the hoof of the horse is placed into a specially sized mould and liquid thermo-setting advanced polymer is injected into it. The liquid encapsulates around the hoof and sets solid in 2 minutes providing the horse the support it needs. From a health and kindness point of view, it’s much safer and more comfortable than traditional horse shoeing methods and keeps the hooves in better condition because it mimics the natural hoof function, whereas the metal shoe doesn’t, giving the horse a better chance of rehabilitation.
Now the company has become more established in the equine healthcare marketplace and the products are gaining good traction in quite a few territories around the world, Formahoof needed a brand to help them further grow the business in newer regions like the UK.
