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.
