Field PasteRead reviews
Cleansing clay hoof dressing
New label, new sizes, exactly the same product, ingredients and formula:
You will notice some changes to our labelling but dont worry this is exactly the same product that we have been making for years. We have updated the labels to meet labelling regulatory requirements. Meaning we have omitted some labelling elements that are not mandatory and added others that are. We still use the same quality ingredients in the same high concentrations!
Field Paste cleanses and conditions the underside of the horse’s foot, helping frogs and soles stay strong and healthy.
Its ingredients support the natural growth of healthy tissue, especially when rubbed well into the surface of the frog. The active agents also help the hoof and frog tissue to toughen without being caustic or damaging.
The thick, paste-like consistency allows Field Paste to stay in the deep grooves of the foot for longer than thinner solutions.
The natural ingredients have been chosen either for their cleansing and drawing properties or to improve the consistency of the paste.
2022 Update: our ingredients are still exactly the same, high quality, effective ingredients we have always used. We just display less of them on the label for labelling regulatory requirements and protection of our formula.
Natural clay blend
A blend of clays to help draw inpurities out of the sole and frog and give the Field Paste its unique consistency.
Honey for its many beneficial properties and to improve the consistency of the product.
Powerful but gentle compounds to support the correct microbia on the foot and nourish horn tissue.
Highly effective essential oils that helps to toughen weakened structures, cleanse the area and penetrate deep into the structure of the foot.
‘Milly’ came in from the field with a large portion of her frog sliced off, sufficient for underlying tissues to be exposed.After a couple of days under veterinary care she was taken back to her yard. The owner applied Field Paste daily to protect it from bacteria, foreign bodies and to encourage regrowth.
After a couple of applications Milly’s frog started to harden up and look far healthier despite being field kept. The farrier was “amazed” by how much her frog grew in a short space of time. The owner believed that without Field Paste Milly would have to of been kept in a stable the entirety of the winter.
Milly’s soles and frogs now look very healthy and Field Paste is only being used once a week.
“The farrier was amazed at how much her frog had grown in a short space of time. I will definitely keep a tub on stand by!”
‘Max’ is a 17.1hh, 7yr old Hanoverian x Irish Sports Horse who is barefoot. He developed deep central sulcus cracks, foul odour and black ‘ooze’ on his feet after his owner (a veterinary osteopath) had been away.On her return she applied Field Paste daily (rather too generously as per photo!). Max continued to be turned out every day.
Within 24 hours the foul odour had gone and the frog was already beginning to harden and heal. Within 2 days nearly all signs of blackening and odour had gone.
“I was so delighted with the product and how quickly it worked. I now live in South West France and we have a very different set of environmental challenges for the barefoot horse, and have a very specific routine for his feet. However I still continue to use all Red Horse Products – not only for the feet but for flies too. I would certainly recommend Red Horse Products to everyone – they are a first aid store cupboard essential!”
‘Boss’ an 18.1hh shire was purchased with blackened, smelly frogs and deep sulcus cracks not helped by poor hoof balance. The crevices continued between the bulbs of his heels. Although the farrier improved matters somewhat tar, iodine, peroxide etc. brought no improvement.
After a week of using Field Paste he had shown drastic improvement, showing visible structural improvement.
Within a few months the cracks had closed and frogs become a healthy size and shape.
“Your products along with a patient farrier mean the frogs are far healthier and those deep cracks are a thing of the past. My horse is more comfortable being shod which is significant progress. You know it’s a good product when the farrier asks what you’re using!”
I wanted to write to you to tell you how thrilled I am at the success of your product Field paste.. My horse ‘Charlie’ (15.1 Irish Cob mare) had a problem with hacking out alone so I sent her to a trainer. They have done a fab job with that but struggled to keep her smelly, black feet at bay which has always been a problem and when she came back to me it was as bad as ever. It was deep into her frogs and causing much cracking and black, smelly slime resided in the collateral grooves. I have tried many things, daily washing with salt water… using antifungal soap… spraying with athletes foot preparation! Nothing has ever cleared it completely and often is time consuming. Shoes were taken off as you just cant get underneath the shoe or clear the nail holes and I was recommended Field Paste by the barefoot trimmer.
Within the first few days I saw improvement… truly I did! What I noticed first was that when I picked out her feet 3 days after applying the Field Paste you could in fact still smell the product. After one week the foul, diseased smell had gone completely and had started to clear from the frogs. In all it took about 3 weeks to clear it completely which is miraculous as she has had it badly for 3 years with me just trying to keep it at bay.
She lives out and I now just apply a little to the central sulcus and the collateral grooves either side of the frog after I pick out her feet and the odour and blackening is showing no sign of returning and all the cracking to her frogs has disappeared. The condition of the whole underside of her foot has improved measurably.
Thank you for making such a great easy to apply and use product that actually does what it promises.. Charlie and I are very, very, grateful.

Make sure the foot is clean and dry and rub a thin layer of Field Paste well into the sole, the more you put on the more likely it is to peel off in one go.
Field Paste is intended to be used on the hoof and frog, we do not recommend using it elsewhere in case it causes irritation.
Gloves are not necessary for personal protection (but do wash your hands after use) but are a good idea for keeping your hands clean as Field Paste is quite sticky.
For mild issues regular use of Sole Cleanse is advised, once problems are cleared up this is easy to apply and inexpensive to use as a preventative. For more severe cases or where regular use is not possible use Field Paste in turned out horses and Sole Paint in stabled horses or in drier weather outside. If you are unsure or your horse is stabled and at grass you are best to use a thin layer of Field Paste.
The table below may help:
Pick out and clean feet if necessary. Smear paste deep into the lateral grooves and onto the frog and sole. Re-apply as necessary or when feet are picked out. Once improvement is shown, re-apply weekly to keep soles healthy and tough. Use a thin layer rubbed in well if the paste is not sticking well or the horse is stabled.
“Just a quick note to say I am blown away by your Field Paste. It is a wonderful product. I have been battling degraded toe in my newly barefoot 25 year old thoroughbred for a little over a year. We would almost get it clear then it would get a hold again. A recent abscess from the degraded toe sent me looking at other ways to tackle it. Within 2 applications the area stopped flaking. Just 4 weeks on and the toe hole has filled in, the callus that was on the sole behind it is reducing as he is using his foot better. I also used it to clear white line infection and a little blackening and malodour in the other feet. A once a week maintenance of a scrub and paste is working out wonderfully.
I also recommended it’s use on a friend’s horse, shod and blackened, malodour on the soles as well as the frog clefts. One good cleaning and application of Field Paste left on for 5 days and the difference is amazing – the feet no longer smell and the sole no longer crumbles as you pick it. Simply an amazing product.”
“Just ordered my second tub of Field Paste. It’s great at clearing up any smell and blackening on the hoof. Easy to apply and sticks to my horses feet providing a great barrier for wet and muddy conditions.”
“When we first got our cob he has such persistent smelly feet that we nicknamed him ‘wotsit’! Off the shelf remedies only kept the smell at bay for a while. As soon as I smell it starting now I slap on some Field Paste and it doesn’t get hold. It’s the best product i have tried and a must for any horsey medicine cabinet. It also smells nice and is pleasant to use!”
“I stumbled across Red Horse Products after searching various forums for foot health products. When I bought my horse I could see that he had black, smelly hooves and they had been untreated for a considerable amount of time (not helped by imbalances in all hooves). While all hooves had infection in the grooves and central sulcus, the back hooves were considerably worse and showed deep crevices between the heel bulbs.
With regular hoof care and a patient farrier the infection improved in the grooves but the central sulcus crack was still problematic. I’ve tried the usual products you can find in the local tack shop but nothing would help when the ground was wet. Any progress I made in dry weather was set back massively by a single day of rain.
I’ve been using the Field Paste for a week now and I’m amazed by the visible differences, especially in the crevices between the heel bulbs despite the wet muddy conditions. More importantly I’m now feeling confident going into the winter muddy months that I can stay on top of the infection and fight back.
Thanks for an amazing product.”
“I have used your Field Paste recently on my shod horse and it has done a brilliant job of clearing up the smell and discolouration on his hooves that I have been fighting for at least a year. I have no hesitation in recommending it if I have a friend with a horse with the same issue.”
“Excellent products that meet the needs of horses. The Field Paste is superb and has helped my barefoot pony to overcome smelly, black feet and stay clear from it since the product was advised just after I got him.”
“Your Field Paste is a fantastic natural product that really works! All mine have great soles and frogs since using it, definately be buying more I was also surprised how far it goes.”
“Absolutely fantastic stuff. I use the Field Paste and it’s works magic on my ponies feet. Highly recommend”

“I have found Red Horse Products all to be excellent. With Field Paste clearing up persistent odour in the case of one stallion despite our scrupulous management. HoneyHeel has proven to be a fantastic wound cream”
Heather Moffett, Enlightened Equitation
“Field Paste is fantastic, easy to use and really works, I would recommend it to anyone!”
“Absolutely love this product … As a farrier, I have been promoting this product for the smelly, soft frogs I’ve been seeing lately. The Field Paste seems to be working very well for clearing up these conditions and my clients are loving it!! Thanks Red Horse Products”
Heidi Louisa Joyce Harvey
“Red Horse Products, Leslie just gave me a sample pot last week because my gelding has been lame for three weeks now because he prefers to stand in mud instead of going to higher ground. Stalling him isn’t possible because he freaks out. I have been applying this daily for less than a week and am already seeing results!! I’ll be ordering a couple of the 1500ml pots this week, love this product. Thank you!!”

“Fantastic product and using currently on our heavy cob, you can almost feel my boy relax when it is applied.”

“Using underneath hoof pads with farriers hemp on a 6 week shoeing cycle, keeps the feet clean and bacteria free. Also helps prevent formation of a retained sole as it can still breathe and it lets the sole dehydrate as it would naturally which aids exfoliation”
“It does what it says on the tin……brilliant, love some more”
“We use it, it’s fantastic stuff and my ponies seem to enjoy it being put on”
“Love this stuff and converted many of my friends to using it”
“We shove it into the sulcus and plug with cotton wool – works perfectly”

“I spent a lot of time making my own natural hoof products, now I don’t have to, Field Paste and Artimud are fantastic products”
“Field paste is great ammunition against hoof bugs in the frogs. Easy to apply and stays on a good long time if you work it well into all the nook and crannies of a freshly picked and brushed hoof. Really helps to keep the underside of the foot tip top.
Brilliant stuff, well worth it. Used it last year and worked a treat when everything else failed. X”

“Love this product”
“Amazing stuff, I’ve been using it on my horse’s feet for years, since he went barefoot. He is a thin soled, flat footed TB and has fairly weak soles, but this paste is brilliant, it has helped to harden his soles and is really great to use if he gets a small hole or a bit of hoof splits off, as it has great antibacterial properties. I often recommend it to people and have got other horse owners hooked on it too !”

“LOVE Field Paste! Does a brilliant job keeping my retired boys frogs in tip top condition but the biggest success has been with my ridden horses, who both had quite weedy frogs when they came into work. They now have lovely, plump frogs functioning as they should! Its a product I recommend to everyone for frog health and I wouldn’t use anything else!”
“Brilliant stuff. Slightly addictive to use”
“We have used the field paste on a couple of ponies . Had excellent results ,would most certainly recommend.”
“When living in Menorca we swore by this product in the wet warm weather. I even brought some back to England with me when we returned with the horses … not realising it was an English product … Only then to discover we had moved a mile away from Red Horse Products”
“Brilliant stuff. My grooming kit would not be complete without it. One of my mares had some blackening around the frog – put this on & the next day it was gone. Highly recommend”
“Highly recommend Field Paste to all horse owners. I’ve used it regularly on my horses, with other Red Horse hoof care products, for the last two years and it really works. Their feet are in great condition and hardly ever ‘smelly’! Love It!”
“I was reluctant to use Field Paste as I thought it was all hype, now I use it and my mares hooves are fantastic will carry on over the winter to keep her feet in good condition”
” I love Field Paste. My pony gets very smelly feet as soon as the ground is damp. Field Paste works better than any other sprays I have bought. I have also used Artimud and Hoof-Stuff.”

“Use it under my shoeing package to keep frog healthy during shoeing period. Great product”
Miriam Braun Rhpd Apf
“Love this stuff!! Has made such a difference to my two minis and 17hh Sporthorse. I’ve been using it with the Artimud and the more fibrous one (can’t remember name just now!) To treat hoof wall separation which was causing the small stones to get in. What a difference! Both my farrier and vet are really impressed with the results.”
“5* product what I love about it is even after a few days you can still see and smell the product on the hoof. Clears all nasty stuff up in a flash. Love love love”
“I am a barefoot trimmer and have been recommending Field Paste to all my costumers. It’s the best product I have ever used for smelly frogs!”
Camilla Irene Agnaess
“I use this on my stabled horses to great effect – it gives me peace of mind that if life is hectic or my back is bad, I don’t have to pick feet out! It stays in there, quietly working it’s magic, and smelling lovely! Would not be without it!”
” I borrowed some off a friend, during my horse spending hours being stabled due to a bone chip. I was amazed at the difference it made! My horse is 15 and he’s s heavyweight cob. Who’s got great feet but we just couldn’t shift the smell and blacking on his feet. But this did the trick. I certainly would recommend this to others. Many thanks Amy and Junior the horse”
“Fabulous amazing brilliant stuff.”
“Great product, I’ve kept a tub of this to hand for about 10 years now. I recommend it to anyone who asks about keeping feet healthy”
