    HOW TO CHOOSE YOUR HORSE'S HOOF CARE?

    Your horse's hooves are exposed to extreme situations, so it's vital to give them regular care, around twice a week.

    There are care products for all kinds of hooves:
    - Hard hooves: ointments will make the hoof more supple and hydrate hard areas.
    - Dry and brittle hooves: oils will repair damaged hooves.
    - Soft hooves: tar will protect the sole and frog from hoof rot.

    Note: you will need a paintbrush to apply these foot care products.

    When and how often should these products be applied?

    Grease and Oil

    There are no fixed rules. Once a day, every week. It all depends on the state of your horse's hooves and the place your horse lives (meadow or box). However, it is better not to apply grease just before a visit from the farrier, as this could impede his or her work.

    Tar

    Beware: tar should only be applied beneath hoof, and especially not on the outer walls or the perioplum (where the cornified material meets the skin), as this will inhibit growth. Tar is not like hoof grease: it is a specific product that should not be over-used. It dries the cornified material on the hoof, and is best used in winter, or if the frog is soft or has an unpleasant odour.

    HOW TO CHOOSE YOUR HORSE'S INSECT REPELLENT?

    Horses have natural tools for warding off insects on fine days, but these are not always enough. A range of insect repellent products is available to help your horse defend itself and to improve its day-to-day comfort.

    The choice of product will depend on:
    - Context: at rest (box or meadow) or at work.
    - Preferred application method: gel, spray, etc...
    - Desired length of effectiveness.

    Aims: prevention or treatment.
