Through the addition of the following specific active ingredients, Farrier’s Aid provides a complementary nutritional support for all horses and ponies.


Active Ingredient

Why We Use It


Biotin has been shown by extensive trial work to aid the hardening of hoof horn and so prevent cracking. It is an essential requirement for keratin production in the hoof, laminae and the coronary band and is critical to maintain overall hoof integrity and condition.

Collagen Matrix

Collagen is the most abundant protein in animals and forms the main protein of connective tissue. It has great tensile strength and is the main component of ligaments and tendons.

Concentrated Yeast Derived Oligosaccharides

Oligosaccharides provide a feed source for beneficial bacteria and support the natural expulsion of antagonists found in feed and the environment.

Copper, Manganese & Vitamin C

All three are essential to maintaining the growth of tendons and ligaments, the formation of cartilage and the elasticity of connective tissue. It is very important for the working horse to maintain its freedom of movement and suppleness when in motion.


A complex structure like the hoof of the equine and the pressures it endures will include substantial supportive networks of tissues, as a basis for hoof integrity.

Hemp Oil Derived

Omega 3 Fatty Acids

Hemp oil is probably the best source of Omega 3 Fatty Acids found in the plant world. This unique combination enables the horse to produce other essential Omega 3 fats called EPA & DHA, both of which are normally only found in fish oils, but are crucial for the health, fertility, condition and performance of the animal.

MSM (Methylsulfonylmethane)

MSM is a natural organic source of sulphur that is an essential constituent of amino acids and protein. Most sulphur is found in high protein organs and tissues, like hair and hooves and it is indicative that, to form these high protein tissues, a supply of organic sulphur is necessary to maintain this metabolic function.


Horses with poor horn quality have been seen to respond when extra zinc has been added to their diet. It helps to maintain keratin, which is the fibrous protein that gives the wall of the hoof its hardness. The amount of keratin found in hooves can vary and this determines how tough the wall of the hoof is.


Contains the Oatinol® Delivery System


For all of the above elements to be utilised, they have to be absorbed from the horses’ digestive tract. Oatinol supplies natural antioxidants, polar lipids, beta glucans and galactolipid emulsifiers, required to maintain gut cell integrity, maintain the lining of the gut, support the immune system and aid the absorption of active ingredients, vitamins and trace elements.


Active Ingredient

Why We Use It

Oatinol - Galactolipid Natural Emulsifiers

Galactolipids are a combination of sugar and fat molecules that help establish the perfect medium for enzyme activity in the gut to absorb feed components.

Oatinol - Natural
Tocotrienol Antioxidants

Tocotrienol antioxidants are found naturally in oat bran. This tocotrienol form of vitamin E is 40 to 60 times more readily recycled in membrane systems and supports tissue integrity.

Oatinol - Oat Derived
Beta Glucans

Beta glucans provide nourishment for beneficial fibre degrading microbes and helps maintain a high level of natural immunity.

Oatinol - Polar Lipids

Polar lipids are found in high concentrations in cell membranes and are essential for tissue integrity and the controlled passage of materials into and out of cells.
