Hoof Support

Crackdown is your horse and your blacksmith's best friend. Forage based and high in sulfur bearing nutrients that are key to circulation and the development of strong keratinous tissue in the hoof, Crackdown is the most comprehensive approach to hoof care you can find.

While other hoof supplements often over focus on biotin alone, Crackdown's ingredients are high in Arginine and Methionine, which encourage healthy blood flow and circulation, helping to expand blood vessels vital for nutrients to enter tiny capillaries inside the hoof. Potent antioxidants and Omega-3 fatty acids support a healthy inflammatory response and give your horse's coat a healthy shine.

Say goodbye to cracked or brittle feet, weak hoof walls and quarter cracks, soft feet, feet that won't grow, low quality hoof growth, and hoof sensitivity.

Why the long face? We have answers to your questions right here.

 

Can’t find what your looking for? Contact Us

How quickly can I expect to see a difference?

Usually within the first shoeing cycle. Hoof growth is notoriously slow, but Crackdown will start increasing the rate and quality of growth within the first 3-4 weeks.

How do I know if my horse needs a hoof supplement?

If your horse has dry or brittle feet, soft feet, feet that don’t grow well, hoof sensitivity, or quarter cracks, then they would benefit from Crackdown.

Why does Crackdown have less biotin than other hoof supplements?

Because the amount of biotin your horse needs pales in comparison to the need for sulfur rich amino acids like Methionine, which are central to keratin production. Biotin is produced in the horse’s gut and most horses produce enough biotin to satisfy what they need for healthy hooves.

What are the ingredients in Crackdown?

Crackdown contains a proprietary blend of quinoa, pumpkin seed, sesame seed, almonds, chickpeas, lentils, oats, kale, spinach, and brazil nuts.

Is it possible to buy Crackdown in bulk?

Yes. Contact us at 561-818-4222 or info@equineelixirs.com to discuss.

Do you offer farm incentive programs?

Yes.  For barns buying in bulk please email us at info@equineelixirs.com to discuss eligibility and incentive structure.

Do you have sales or promo codes?

No. We do not have sales or promo codes because we offer the highest quality product at the lowest possible price year round.

Do you have sample sizes of the supplements?

No.  The reason we do not have sample sizes is because the average time frame for seeing an improvement is generally 2-3 weeks so for people wanting to sample the products we suggest starting with the 30 day supply.

Testimonials
We struggled to get this horse's feet to grow any sole despite trying several different avenues.
After less than six months on Crackdown the horse's sole depth doubled and hoof quality was substantially improved. This was significantly more growth than the horse experienced during the prior year. Crackdown is a staple product that I recommend to clients for overall hoof health as well as in specific cases where a horse has difficulty growing sole and hoof wall.

Shortly after starting Crackdown we noticed a substantial improvement in the integrity of their hooves.
Because our horses show a lot, some of them would develop compromised feet with shelling or cracking. Shortly after starting Crackdown we noticed a substantial improvement in the integrity of their hooves. Even our farriers noticed the improvement in the quality and rate of hoof growth. The horses love the palatability of the product and there is never any left in the feed bucket. We are so excited to be able to use this all-natural product on our horses.

We tried Crackdown, and after the second shoeing my blacksmith said he couldn't believe that my horse's hoof quality had improved 100%.
My horse's hoof quality was compromised after being very sick. We tried Crackdown, and after the second shoeing my blacksmith said he couldn't believe that my horse's hoof quality had improved 100%. I've tried other hoof products on my horse in the past, but never with the results that I saw from Crackdown. It says a lot when your blacksmith, who only sees your horse once a month, notices such a dramatic improvement. Everybody should maintain their horse on Crackdown.

One of our horses was constantly losing shoes and couldn't make it through a full shoeing cycle.
His shoes were always loose and the nail holes wouldn't grow out. After we started using Crackdown his feet grew so well within the first month that our farriers asked what we did differently. They were so impressed! Not only can the horse make it through an entire shoeing cycle now, but the Crackdown also makes his coat super shiny.
