About HPF

The Hoof Project Foundation was established to meet three distinct goals:

Rehabilitation, Education, and Research

Rehabilitation & Extended Care for Horses with Hoof Disease

The Hoof Project Foundation (HPF) provides supplemental funds to permit extended care of horses affected with diseases of the feet in cases where the owner cannot afford optimal care. Clinical care will be initiated on an as-needed basis, pending the availability of sufficient funds.


The Hoof Project Foundation provides funds for educational and scientific meetings with the restricted focus of research and education regarding the foot of the horse

Research to Establish Better Understanding of & Treatments for Hoof Diseases

The Hoof Project Foundation provides research funds to support non-proprietary, applied/clinical research that is focused directly on the diseases of the horse’s foot, or research on the normal foot if the data sought is necessary to the understanding of foot/hoof disease.
