As riders and online shoppers, we know it can be tough to buy a new bridle or pair of boots without trying them on. That's why we moved the fitting room to your living room (or barn)! From breeches to blankets, if you or your horse can try it on, you can return it, free! Just use the pre-paid return label included in your order within 60 days from the purchase date. And of course, please make sure the item is in like-new condition with original packaging (we said 'fitting room', not 'war room'!).

Keratex Hoof Gel keeps hoof horn water tight in wet weather and stops cracking in dry weather. Not a damaging oil, but a powerful hydrophobic treatment that leaves the hoof glistening dry. While Keratex Hoof Hardener repairs damage to the hoof horn's molecular structure caused by water and ammonia, Keratex Hoof Gel quite simply stops the damage from happening in the first place. Keratex Hoof Gel protects hooves from damage caused by manure, urine and excess water absorption. Keratex Hoof Gel allows the hoof to breathe. Air can pass freely through Keratex Hoof Gel in either direction and excess moisture can be expelled from the hoof. No water or typical chemicals can enter the hoof from the outside. If you are showing or going to an event, all you need to do is apply Keratex Hoof Gel, let it dry, and then buff it with a cloth to have a super natural sheen on the hooves. 1 liter.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works as described Even after just one application my gelding's feet were cleaner and drier than before. Manure was just wiped off with a towel. Arena dirt didn't stick and NO thrush yet!Excellent product!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Anything from Keratex! I have been using this product for about a month maybe, and I am obsessed. I started off using the Keratex Hoof Hardener, which I LOVE. My horse has now been barefoot for a year, with help from Smartpak Hoof supplement and the Keratex hardener. Now that we've gotten an excellent checkup from our farrier, I've decided to move on to a new hoof product. I can't believe the how good this stuff works. I live in Michigan, and right now is mud season. The mud comes right off his feet, and he has stayed thrush free as well! Love, Love, love it. Also, a lot of reviews claim this doesn't polish the hoof as much as the company claims, but I found that to be totally false. It deinatley gives Zoom's feet a great sheen.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for challenging TB hoofs I have a tiny OTTB (00 & 000 shoes), with very thin soles and very weak hoof wall. It was a rough summer, but this hoof application helps keep a very nice moisture balance in the hoof. I also use it on my old retired guy, who has bad hoof quality as well. Would HIGHLY recommend. Only drawback is that it is expensive, but it lasts along time.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Product Keratex Hoof Gel has really helped my TB mare. She has low heels and grows a long toe. The summertime moisture softens her hoof wall and contributes to crushing her heels and cracking along the nail holes. Keratex Hoof Gel protects her feet from the wetness by providing a breathable barrier. Apply it to clean hooves and let dry. Do not use any other hoof dressings. This is an amazing product. Use it consistently and you will see results. Very important to shake it up thoroughly. You will need a small hoof brush to apply it. I use it everyday in summer and 1 or 2 times a week in winter according to need.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Eureka! Something to keep hooves dry! We have a mare with narrow feet. Her front feet have actually widened a bit due to balanced riding and shoeing, but her commissures are deep and narrow and tend to hold stall shavings, mud, etc. It got to where thrush would start, I treated with iodine - over and over. Our trainer recommended Keratex Hoof Hardener thinking it would help the frog. I found this hoof gel and thought it would be even better and it has really helped! The only complaint I have is the lack of an applicator. I ended up buying an empty hoof oil bottle on another site. It says to apply to a clean, dry hoof, but I don't want to wash her feet and wait for them to dry. I just pick them out and brush them off. Although, they don't seem to hold the mucky stuff so much now. Much dryer and healthier. Great product, but invest in the bottle with a brush in the lid for easy application.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from keratex has done it again ! I have been using the keratex hoof hardener for a couple months now and loved it, I saw this product and wanted to give it a try because thrush season is coming up. I did an unintentional experiment with my two horses, both freshly shod and living in the same paddock one of them got the hoof gel all over and the other didn't. It rained... no it monsooned, and when I brought them in the next day the one without the gel had soggy feet and frogs and took forever to dry while my other horse with the gel had hard feet that dried quickly. Will recommend to everyone !

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product Great choice for a barefoot horse. His feet still look good even after being out on pasture through a rainy week. No chips or cracks, and best of all his feet have stayed dry and thrush free. Goes on easy and dries fast, though I suggest getting a hoof can to pour the product into, as it doesn't come with a brush. Definitely recommend for wet weather.
