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

The Rain Maker formula leaves hooves strong and pliable, while enhancing color and sheen. Special natural ingredients are combined to give Rain Maker hoof moisturizer its unique "Triple Action" formula: attracts moisture to the hoof, increases moisture absorption, and retains moisture once it has been absorbed. Rain Maker penetrates deep to improve texture and elasticity.

What Customers Say:


Active Ingredients: Neatsfoot Oil 55.0%, White Petrolatum 30.0%, Glycerine 0.5%$0$0Inactive Ingredients: Pine Tar, Lanolin, Aloe Vera, Hydrolized Animal Protein


Instructions for Use:
Before applying Rain Maker, be sure the sole and wall of the hoof are clean and dry. Pick out the soles and clefts of the frog to remove any foreign matter. First, using the handy applicator brush provided, work Rain Maker into the frog, the sole and over the bulbs of the heel. Next, apply to the hoof wall to aid in restoration of the periople (protective coating of the horn), retard moisture loss and give the hoof a natural sheen. Using the applicator brush, also massage Rain Maker into the coronary band to approximately one inch above the hoof wall. Repeat treatment as needed. Most hoofs respond favorably to an application once or twice a week.

    Rain Maker is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 49.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT I've been using this product for year's. It's an EXCELLENT product. It's my pony's & my donkey's feet stay pliable & keeps them from chipping. It's Better than other product's that I've used. I HIGHLY Recommend this product.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Product Works This is the first time that I have used Rain Maker. My mare's hooves chip, especially the rear which don't have shoes. I have definitely noticed an improvement since using this product.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from my go-to hoof product My mare is barefoot and her hooves used to get all chipped up and would get vertical cracks. I use this 3 times a week and boy do I notice a difference. I apply it everywhere; frog, bulbs, coronary band, all over. Her frogs are also more pliable and not hard and dry. I like that it's something I don't have to apply on a daily basis, since I'm not able to be at the barn every day due to my work schedule. In the cold weather it does get really thick and hard to reach with the brush but I simply let it sit in the sun while I ride and that seems to do the trick.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from great product but the container/brush needs though This has always been a great product, I usually avoid getting it though because I really dislike trying to get the product our of the container with the brush. I tried the product again because of our dry weather/dry hooves. I still hate the applicator can. I think I will scoop it all out and just use a plastic food container with a paint brush!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product! I bought this product a little over a month ago and I am so happy with it. My gelding's hooves are no longer dry. I absolutely LOVE that this is safe to put on the coronet band, as most other hoof products shouldn't be. Great product, I'm very happy with it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Absolute Favorite Hoof Treatment! I've been using Rain Maker for as long as I can remember, at first just because it's what everyone else was using, but once I had horses of my own (and was buying more grooming supplies) I really started to appreciate it. My current horse has pretty solid feet, but like any horse, his hooves are still prone to vertical cracks: I use Rain Maker a few times a week for regular maintenance, and it's worked like a charm. Keeps my guy's hooves pliant and looking pretty! I've found it to be a great value for the price too. The only really comparable product, in terms of ingredients, is Hooflex, which costs about 10 cents more per ounce, and doesn't include aloe or natural proteins as does Rain Maker! My ONLY complaint about Rain Maker is the consistency. It gets very thick and sticky in cold weather, and is difficult get the last bit of dressing out of the can, as it sticks to the bottom and sides. I usually just cut it with water or a small amount of rubbing alcohol, but it is definitely a bit of a pain.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product I have purchased it for many years - I like how easy it is to paint on and how thick it is...doesn't evaporate in the heat or harden in the cold.
    Date published: 2014-10-13
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works well Works well and doesn't make the hooves too moist. Pretty easy to use too. It is harder to use when it's cold- so I try to keep it in a heated area during the winter. I think it works better than Hooflex.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very Effective for Dry Hooves Between stomping from flies and very dry weather, my horse's feet have been extremely dry, hooves proned to cracking (no shoes). I put Rainmaker on twice a day to help his feet between farrier visits. This product does the job and his feet show the difference, they are visibly moisturized and do not crack as easily. This product smells like BBQ sauce, but it works!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Farrier's Go-to product I've used Rain Maker on the advice of my farrier for several years. It, and judicious rasping of messy edges, keeps my barefoot guys in sound hooves during our dry summers.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Effective Long time user on all four horses, as good if not better than anything else I have used

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Conflicted... I like Rain Maker and I don't. Pros: great hoof sealer before a bath, I think it smells good, easy to apply Cons: pricy, stains clothing, inconsistent consistency (hard paste in the winter, liquid in the summer), makes hooves gunky if used daily I used to use it daily, but my horses hooves got gross (like to the point where I didn't even want to pick them up to clean them!). I now use it maybe once a month if I run out of my other stuff or if I give him a bath.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great hoof product Rain Maker leaves my TB's hooves looking good for days after just one application. They were looking dry, and even though my ferrier said they were fine I wanted to give this a shot and I'm glad I did - his feet just look healthier now. And you don't need to use a lot so the container should last a while, definitely worth the money.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favorite hoof moisturizer I have tried alot of hoof balms and this one is my favorite for its value and effectiveness. Living in Florida, sand cracks are always an issue, especially with my barefoot horses, and this really pack on the moisture, plus it lasts along time too (I can have a bottle last 6 months on one horse and that's applying several times a week!). I recommend wetting the hooves before application as it helps lock in the extra moisture.
    Date published: 2013-05-27
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Stuff! My horse has always had healthy feet, but on occasion they chip or crack. I started using rain maker (once or twice a week) and his feet are healthier than ever, never crack, and never chip! I stopped shoeing him and just keep him barefoot now! It is a little pricey, but it definitely can save you money! To bad some gets stuck at the bottom and you can't get it all out... But a can lasts a long long time!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Too Much like Jelly The consistency changes depending on the weather. It does do a good job of protecting hooves though. I just don't like how it gets so jelly-like, once you have used most of it it sticks to the bottom of the jar.
    Date published: 2013-04-12
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from I've used this dressing on my horse's bulbs and underside of their feet when the weather is really hot and dry. It seems to protect and moisturize from dryness and cracking, preventing existing chips from getting worse. I like to apply it right after riding and untacking, giving the feet about 10-15 minutes to soak up the hoof dressing before walking back to her stall (which by that point prevents it from just coming off with the dirt when she walks). I would probably recommend this product.
    Date published: 2013-02-26
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Only thing I use on my horse's hooves I like to put this on in the spring and fall during the "muddy season" since my horse's feet dry out the most then. I like to put it on and let is soak in for 10-15 minutes before I let him get shavings all over it in his stall. It works well to put it on before giving them a bath because then it sticks and doesn't wash off.
    Date published: 2013-01-25
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best product for a horse pedicure! We use this on our horses hoofs to help keep them healthy. It has helped with cracks and dryness of their hoofs and our farrier was impressed with the results.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from good paint on Horses feet have always been good but develped cracks from being exteemly DRY from the drought this summer--so decided to try this product. Worked very well and fixed the dryness.
    Date published: 2012-10-22
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Some like it, I don't. I know a lot of people at the barn who use this, but I have recently given mine away and switched to another hoof conditioner. Rain Maker does do a good job of keeping your horse's hooves from getting soaked during bathing, but I found that it tends to leave a layer of buildup if used daily. The smell is terrible - I call it bad barbeque sauce. The consistency also changes greatly with the weather, and in the summer it can get so thin that it drips everywhere. I guess that it is fine for occasional use to protect feet in the wash stall, but I switched to a product that does not contain animal proteins.
    Date published: 2012-06-04
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful Hoofs!! Rain Maker is thick enough to apply just where you want it yet thin enough where it doesnt cake on heavy. The heat for the hoof softens this product so I feel I'm not wasting it as the oils tend to spill. Stays put turned out better then any other so I know it has a chance to do its job!!
    Date published: 2011-05-18
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tried and True You can try cheaper hoof conditioners, but you'll always end up coming back to Rain Maker if your horse suffers from dry, cracked and hard hooves. One application lasts for days.
    Date published: 2011-01-25
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from only hoof dressing I buy love this stuff ~ 'course, it freezes in the winter if kept in an unheated tack room, but otherwise it's great!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from have used this since owning my 2nd horse I've used this brand since 1993 ~ once I purchased Hoofmaker instead and regreted it ~ I prefer RainMaker as it contains tar and seems to soak into the outer hoof wall better
