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'!).

Why We Love This

Keratex Hoof Gel provides the ultimate all year protection for hooves. Most problems resulting in hooves cracking and losing shoes are caused by the effects of water and ammonia, so Keratex Hoof Gel protects the whole hoof capsule by providing a barrier against adverse environmental influences acting on the integrity of the hoof horn. It isn’t 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. Used as a standard hoof treatment throughout the year, Keratex Hoof Gel will maintain the moisture content of the hoof at the same natural level.

Favorite Features

• Keeps the hoof horn watertight in wet weather and stops cracking in dry weather.
• Protects hooves from damage caused by manure, urine, and excess absorption.
• 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.

Use every two days, except in dry conditions, when it can be applied every four days. Apply an extra coat before riding out in snow or in extremely wet, muddy conditions.

Keratex Hoof Gel is rated 4.75 out of 5 by 44.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Helps Prevent Abscesses We use a large, clean tomato can and a small paint brush to apply this product. While many of the horses at our stable are suffering from abscesses and thrush after this particularly wet winter, walking through the nasty mud, our horse's feet look great and are keeping their shoes on. The farrier has to work hard to get the clinches out of the hoof wall even at the end of the five week cycle.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Helps Shoes On We bought this product for our draft cross who has beautifully shaped feet but poor horn quality. At the end of his shoeing cycle, he was wearing flip-flops and in some instances simply stepped out of his shoes, taking the hoof wall right off with the nails. Quarter clips didn't help either. We tried lots of other products, including Keratex Hoof Hardener and multiple brands of hoof supplements. We have found that religious application of the Hoof Gel - 2x a week minimum, 3x in wet weather - has allowed our guy's shoes to stay on nice and tight. The farrier now has hoof wall to trim and nail into instead of mush. We apply to the wall as well as the sole, which has also limited the instances of thrush in his deeply shaped hooves. Our guy lives out except in bad weather, so it's nice knowing that he'll keep his shoes on until the farrier is scheduled.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hoof Saver! After an unusually wet spring in a typically dry part of the country, my horses hooves were compromised. The farrier said that he was nailing the shoes onto "butter." It was his recommendation to give Keratex a try to get us through the rainy season. The product couldn't repair the damage that was already done, but it DID harden up the hoof wall enough to keep the shoes on and allow the hooves to grow out. It proved to be an invaluable stop-gap measure for me.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Keratex Hoof Gel Always used Keratex on my horses hooves. Remarkable improvement with chipping and flaring. Recently tried Keratex Hoof Gel and was impressed at how easily it applies to hooves and spreads evenly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Don't pass up this one ! This product is very beneficial for horses that have soft hooves. It prevents the hoof from retaining excess moisture so the hoof maintains normal hoof moisture. It protects the hoof from the damage from standing in manure, urine, mud and water. It allows the hoof to breath.
