Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 16 reviewers.
Rated 2 out of 5 by Not worth the money In researching dozens of different supplements, taking into consideration price, types ingredients, and level of concentration of active ingredients, I've found that Horseshoer's Secret is far below competitive. I was shocked to find that it's main active ingredient is provided in a dose the is less than half of what most other hoof supplements are providing. I'd been using this on several horses with no problems, until I got in 2 horses with problem feet. After a couple months, my shoer asked me to try something else and after trying 2 other products and doing a bunch of research, I found Nu-Hoof Maximizer. In about 60 days we had marked improvement. I've taken everyone off Horseshoer's Secret simply because it doesn't even provide as much active hoof supplement for the money vs. many other supplements. I found Nu-Hoof Max to be the best in the mid-price-range, and have found it to work significantly better than the others I've tried. January 6, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fast Results!!! My farrier recommended this product and within about two weeks of feeding this everyday I could tell a huge difference. My horse's feet were dry and cracked. Now they are moisturized and are a lot harder and durable. September 21, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by LOVE THIS STUFF I have just started my horse on this stuff and I know some people that have their horses on it. My horse LOVES this stuff and I kind of like the smell. he will not leave me alone if i have have it in a bucket. I will recommend it to anyone. August 5, 2012
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great Product I have used more expensive and different brands. However Farnam will continue to keep my business gor years to come. I have used this product on all my horses ranging from a 2 yr old all the way to a 37 yr old. With all the same results great hooves, less cracks, stronger frog, and superb walls. This is an excellent product, please be aware if your going off of recommendations give this product about 4 months before your going to see the full effects of it. As my Arab gelding's feet were in horrible condition, they grew very slowly and he was quick to grind them down to nothing because of this. Horseshoer's Secret, built his hoof up. I never put shoes on him again after about 6 months on this product. I also feed to a Stallion with a stress founder in one hoof, keeps the hoof growing excellent with added health to the hoof and his coat and body condition agrees with it too vs. other hoof supplements I have fed. I seen little change in the hooves and the rest of the body was not benefiting from it. Only downside if you have a horse that is an extremely easy keeper and does not get grain, they are not too fond of eating this alone without grain. July 4, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by LOVE IT works well have seen amazing results in my mare who a sever crack in her hoovesit looked like she had a cows hooves but thanks to this and so proper farrier work shes back to normal January 8, 2012
Rated 1 out of 5 by Didn't work well for me I used this product for three months instead of my regular product and in only one month of being off my regular product and on this one their hoof were dry, brittle and flaky and got progressively worse over a three month period. Upon going back to my origional supplement their hoofs began to grow good new hoof rapidly with no additional hoofs. Therefore I would not recommend this product to anyone myself but some people say it works for them. December 1, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent Product I purchased a thoroughbred gelding of the track on May 30th. The previous owner had just pulled his shoes. He was a little ouchy at the time, but contributed it to just having his shoes pulled. Two weeks later he was still sore, so I had the farrier check his feet. It turned out he had a fungus that entered thru the nail holes and invaded the hoof wall. The farrier said it would probably be at least late October before he would be better because we needed to let the hoof grow out to get rid of it. His hooves started to break off so badly that he would not even walk out of his stall! A friend at the local tack store recommended HHS. It was a miracle! He was sound by the 1st week of September because his hooves grew so quickly. He also loves the stuff- thinks it is a treat! P.S.-Another owner at the same barn had a ottb with same problem the previous year and did not put him on a hoof supplent. It was well over 6 months before her horse was sound enough to ride!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Horse Hoof Saver My belgian cross had terrible feet with significant cracks, big chips and couldn't keep shoes on. She has been on and off this product several times and whenever she is off her hoofs are like shredded wheat! Even a short time on the product makes the difference in having solid usable feet.

I have tried other hoof supplements and am returning to Horseshoer's Secret because it actually works for both of my horses.

Have always found the Farnam name as a good choice for quality and reliability. I have been involved with horses for over 40years and have used these products for that long.

I am feeding horseshoers secret to 4 horses right now. I need large quantity for good price. Do you offer free shipping?
A shopper on Oct 30, 2014
Best Answer: Each 38lb size ordered carries a $15 weight charged that unfortunately does not qualify for any free shipping promotion. If a free shipping promotion is running it will cover up to 15 pounds.
