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

Due to federal regulations, we are unable to offer expedited shipping, or ship to Alaska and Hawaii for this product. Please note this item may ship separately from your order. We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience.

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.

At SmartPak, your happiness is at the core of everything we do. We back every order with our 100% Happiness Guarantee so that you can shop with confidence. If you're ever less than thrilled with your purchase, just let us know and we'll refund you right away. No hassles, no hoops, no kidding.
Hassle-Free Returns

SmartPak Returns

We put our products to the test in our barns and on our horses, so we're confident that you'll be thrilled with your purchase. However, we know that life in the barn can sometimes be unpredictable. That's why we've created a stress-free return policy. If you purchase an item and it doesn't meet your expectations, we want to know about it, take care of you and give you your money back.

Free Return Shipping on all Sized Items

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'!).

The Fine Print

We love our products and we're happy to take them back - even custom items. We'll happily take back everything from engraved halters to personalized jackets - even embroidered blankets that have been worn (minus the manure, please). But there are a few things we have to restrict returns on (silly federal regulations).

Undergarments
Health regulations require that undergarments (including bras) need to be in new condition (tags and packages intact) in order to be returned. (Even if it wasn't required, do you really want to shop from a store that takes back used undergarments?!)

Saddles
As riders, we know what a big investment a saddle is. That's why we're proud to offer the best Test Ride program in the business. You can keep our Test Ride saddles risk-free for five days, to really make sure you like the fit and the feel. We know that to truly try a saddle, you have to really ride in it. So go ahead and girth it up. Forget about wrapping your stirrup leathers. Try it with or without a saddle pad. Basically, treat it like you already bought it, so you can make sure you really want to. Because when you buy a saddle from us, we want to make sure you love it. Of course, we want our other customers to love their new saddles, too.
That's why we have a Test Ride option for each saddle we carry - so that all of the other saddles can stay in pristine condition, waiting for their new owners. For this reason, if you purchase a saddle outside the Test Ride program, it's still eligible for return, but must be free from any marks or damage.

So that's it. Seriously. Those are all of our "rules." Well, except the most important one - treating our customers the way we want to be treated. So if you have any questions or if there is anything we can do, please call us at 1-800-461-8898 or email CustomerCare@SmartPak.com. We are always happy to help.

    Keratex Hoof Gel is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 49.
    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.

    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.
    Date published: 2015-07-25
    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.
    Date published: 2015-06-19
    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.
