I have been asked to review this gorgeous hoof pick from LG Leatherworks. I’ve been using it for a couple of weeks now to really give it a good test before I did my write up.
I found it to be:
Firstly, it comes beautiful packaged in a drawstring bag with the LG Leatherworks logo. It would make such a lovely gift for any horsey friend.
The second thing I noticed was how beautiful the leather is, it has that gorgeous leather smell you associate with new tack. The metal is a gorgeous gold colour – it just screams quality.
One of the main features is a clip to attach to your jodhpurs for when you’re out riding. Its so handy for when you are out hacking and your horse gets a stone stuck in his hoof. Its compact and lightweight so not to be an inconvenience whilst riding but very sturdy so it does the job when needed. The hoof pick part folds up so no parts dig in whilst you’re riding. But it comes out easily with no resistance when you need to use it quickly.
The hook on the pick is a great angle and the point is perfect for really getting right to get all the dirt and stones out. The handle is made from leather and is very sturdy allowing for a good grip.
I also found it super useful for me when out checking my ponies. Mine live out most the time and I walk around daily to check on them. I could attach it to my jeans and whilst checking on them if needed I could easily just pick their feet out to make sure there was nothing stuck. Very handy having it there when I needed it.
All in all I found this to be a really very well designed product. Super useful for any equestrian whether you ride or just have them as pets, to have keep on you at all times. The quality is outstanding and I would definitely recommend purchasing it.
