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 Hardener is a gentle acting chemical formulation which forms additional intermolecular bonds between molecules of keratin through the process of cross-linking. Keratin is the main protein constituent of horn and is best described as the building block of the horn structure. Keratex Hoof Hardener strengthens weak, worn and cracked hooves by improving the molecular structure of the horn itself.

Favorite Features

  • Equally effective in wet & dry conditions.
  • Prevents the horn from taking in excess moisture, making it resistant to softening and weakening in wet conditions. This results in a reduction in shoe loss and abscesses.
  • Keratex Hoof Hardener is not an oil or resin layer and does not seal the hoof.
  • Keratex Hoof Hardener will ensure the treated hoof is able to breathe naturally so the moisture balance is properly maintained.
  • Should also be applied to the sole of the hoof to prevent bruising.
  • Includes brush for application

Apply to lower half of hoof and sole, avoiding coronary band and frog. Use daily for one week then twice weekly for general hoof maintenance. If the hoof has been treated with any oils or greases over the past three months, degrease the hoof thoroughly with acetone before applying Keratex Hoof Hardener. Do not use any oils or greases while using Keratex Hoof Hardener.

    Keratex Hoof Hardener is rated 4.7211 out of 5 by 147.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far so good! My TB gelding has been battling abscesses in his front foot and the sole has been very chalky and crumbling. I applied this product daily for the first week and have noticed a huge difference already! The sole is much harder and the crumbling has almost stopped. Will definitely keep up with the weekly applications.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Hoof Saver! My mare's feet are a mess this summer- lots of wet weather has been making her feet very soft. They are cracking and she keeps losing shoes. I decided to try Keratex, and it has been working great. Since I started using it, she has not lost any shoes. It will take a while for the cracks to grow out, but so far the Keratex seems to be doing its job.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from so far so good bought this to help transition to barefoot where moisture is an issue and so far so good. just wish application was simpler-perhaps a sponge tip applicator instead of brush

    Ever since I was the girl with 1,000 breyer horses and the raggity braid in her hair, I was always obsessed. In second grade I moved into a town with a barn right down the street, which is when I started taking lessons...
