Meet the farrier who started it all

Derek Poupard is the owner and inventor of 3D HoofCare and HoofCast. Having spent most of his career ambitiously trying to improve the quality of a horse's hoof, his latest efforts have shown positive results in a very short time frame.



Derek's hard work and dedication paid off when he was honored with induction into the prestigious International Horseshoeing Hall of Fame in 2024.

Derek started a barefoot program in Dubai on racehorses with compromised feet. The results and performance of this program was astounding with horses in this program going on to win multiple Derby’s, Breeders Cups and Classic Grade 1 races including Horse of the Year in 2021.

Through the use of learning and incorporating the latest technologies of CAD designing and then 3D printing prototypes to perfect and create the line of 3D HoofCare pads we see today, the goal was to emulate the horse hoof in its natural state of being barefoot.

With the use of his products, horses around the world are able to reach their full potential in a way that's never been seen before.

I would like to express my gratitude to Derek Poupard, the creator of the 3D HoofCare pad and shoe, for assisting my horse with navicular and persistent lameness in the right foot. Derek worked in conjunction with my farrier, Eric Abramson, to ensure that the job was completed to the highest standard.

Horse Owner

It's possible that you don't recall assisting me with acquiring half mesh pads for my horses, but I wanted to express my gratitude nonetheless. It took some time, but I am delighted with the improvement in my horses' hooves. Thank you so much.

Paul has just put the wedges on Charlie that you made for us. We should have taken before and after videos because he's already so much happier. Before, he was very cautious when walking on the yard and had been noticeably limping on both front legs for the past few days. However, as soon as he was fitted with the new shoes, he stood straight up and started walking with purpose!

I recently acquired the most current edition of the 3D printed half mesh pads that come with a 3 degree wedge. They have been incredibly beneficial for my horse who had previously suffered a broken back, HPA, and low heels. This is the third time I've used them, and I am thrilled with the results. I am grateful to Derek Poupard for introducing this innovative method of aiding race horses.

In just 6 weeks, the pads have already made a significant difference. The growth in her heel is noticeable, and her alignment has remained stable during the cycle. Previously, her heels were crushed and her toe would excessively lengthen.
