Product Description

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. THE HOOF CINCH CAN NOT CAUSE ANY DAMAGE OR RESTIRICT BLOOD FLOW. 



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 CAN NOT RESTRICT THE BLOOD FLOW .  The hoof cinch was tested on 60 horses over the course of a year.  5 normal horses where included and none of them showed any hoof change or lameness at anytime. 29 or the 30 foundered horses recovered fully.


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. 

Looking at the set of Before and After X-rays to the right you can see that in the Before picture, the coffin bone rotates away from the hoof wall due to failing laminae in the front of the hoof. 


The After picture shows the improvement in rotation after just 16 weeks after the application of The Hoof Cinch.


With the Hoof Cinch the hoof wall is actually grown back toward the bone.  When you x-ray 6, 12 or 18 months later there will still be no rotation.


Horses fixed with the Hoof Cinch are able to go back to their normal duties such as trail riding, barrel racing, jumping and just being your companion.

To fix founder the hoof cinch applies pressure to the affected area, relieving pain and forcing the hoof wall to grow back closer to the bone, allowing the laminae to reattach.  Screws secure the Hoof Cinch to the hoof wall and no shoes are required making this a pain free installation for the horse.

The Hoof Cinch also causes the hoof to grow at a faster rate due to the continuous pressure applied to the hoof wall that stimulates the coronary band.  16-20 weeks is the normal application time. Check the Cinches every couple of days and tighten if needed with a hand held screw driver.

Installation Guide

Anyone can install the Hoof Cinch, but we recommend a farrier do the install as they understand the hoof wall structure and are the hoof experts.

1. Clean and trim the hoof if the horse can take having a hoof lifted.  If he can not lift a hoof you may install the Hoof Cinch and wait a couple of days and then come back and trim. 

2.  We suggest leaving the heels elevated as it reduces the pull of the deep flexor and increases the blood flow into the hoof.  Remove all curve from the front of the hoof wall before installation.

3.  Put one screw in each attaching plate and then screw attaching plate onto the hoof wall half way between the coronary band and the ground on the side of the hoof.  Once each side is attached with one screw you can adjust the tightening screw so that it is approximately one inch below the coronary band at the toe area.

4.  Tighten the band slightly and then fold the hold down tab over the band and fasten to the toe area so that is holds the band one inch below the coronary band.

5.  Put at least one more screw per attaching plate on each side of the hoof.

6.  Tighten the band so that it is tight on the hoof wall.. Your flat head screw driver should slip out of the tightening screw once you are tight enough or the horse reacts to the pressure by moving his hoof back under his center of gravity.

NOTES:  If your horse has an abscess please tighten snugly and take care of the abscess.

Xrays and blood tests are always recommended to determine the cause of the rotation so that your veterinarian can stop the internal causes and speed up the healing process.

Face the tightening screw toward the outside hoof wall so that it is easier to tighten.

Mini sets come with two size screws.  Use the shorter screw first.  If they do  not hold then use the longer screws.
