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.

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.

Made in the UK

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.

    Keratex Hoof Gel is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 52.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Saved money with ferrier I bought this after my mates feet kept cracking and having to pay extra money for silicone over her hooves. Within a month of using her feet are no longer cracking and I do not need to pay extra money for silicone. Only downside of the product is you have to buy a separate applicator.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great hoof saver I bought this under recommendation from my farrier and am very happy with the results. I have tried a handful of others on the market but this one surpasses in results! A bit costly, and i had to buy a separate bottle with applicator but has been well worth it!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works! This stuff is the only thing I can find to keep my horses feet from getting soft when it rains. It works!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Helps deal with wet South FL summers My horse is out in a pasture 24/7 and of course rarely uses the run-in shelters so his feet are constantly at the mercy of the wet south FL summers. Keratex Hoof Gel has been great for moisture control, helping to keep his feet hard and preventing chipping and peeling. I can visibly notice the water and dirt being repelled. I don't think I would go through another summer without it. My farrier says his feet look really good!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for soggy FL weather I started using this on my mares hooves after removing all four shoes in an attempt to go barefoot. After about 6 uses, I could visibly notice a difference in her hooves repelling water in a soggy south Florida summer and her feet seem to chip/flake less. While it certainly doesn't help grow hoof, it has helped us on our journey to keep shoes off!

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from I do not like it at all! I bought this and have tried it multiple times on 3 different horses and I do not like it or feel it does the things as it was stated to do this is the first product I have not been happy with after years of ordering smartpak

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic stuff I bought this about 5 months ago used it daily for the first week then every other day and now 2 or 3 times a week depending on the weather. My ottb had ok feet but they were slow growing and chipped so we put him on a 5 week trim cycle now his hooves are great!! My farrier is impressed with the growth and condition of his feet. Even said he has the best feet of all the horses she trims. I live in Fl we had a long dry spring followed by a wet summer so far and his feet are holding up great. Now I trim at 5 weeks because his feet are getting long not due to chipping and peeling. I swear by this stuff.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good health in tough conditions Looks like it's helping so far but a little early to tell. Everything with hoods take a long time to tell full results.

    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.
