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

Finally, a hoof conditioner and toughener that is also a show quality cosmetic. That is a tough combination to beat. Tuff Stuff® is so effective that after treating an egg with it, you can drive a nail through without cracking the shell.

- Strengthen brittle, shelly, mushy, or cracked hoof walls
- Protect scuffed toes
- Guard against fungus, caustics, and bacteria
- Maintain hoof wall’s natural moisture

Favorite Features

  • More effective than oil-based products that actually block moisture absorption.
  • Tuff Stuff® is an acetone-based application with a cellulose bonding agent that moisturizes the hoof from the inside out.

    Tuff Stuff is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 66.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really Works! I bought this about a month ago as suggested by my trainer to help my horse's feet-he's an 11 year old TB with classic TB feet and during the humid summer we've been having in Massachusetts his feet started to crack badly and the nail holes for his shoes opened. After following the directions and using this stuff once a week (twice when it got super humid for a whole week) his feet already look stronger and they've stopped deteriorating. Highly recommend, I was very pleasantly surprised at its effectiveness!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works well! I got this for my horse tully because his hooves always crack and chip up. After using this product I have definitely seen a difference in the quality of his hooves!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good stuff, Tuff Stuff! I've used Tuff Stuff for years. My farrier suggested that I use it on the bottom half of my horses' hooves, then use a conditioner/moisturizer on the top half, around the coronary band. Both of my horses go barefoot year-round, and both have great hooves. Admittedly, I also add SmartPak's SmartCombo, which has 25mg of biotin and other goodies for their hooves.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just tried it for the first time but it seems to help harden her hoof. My horse is good barefoot in the winter but her feet get soft in the summer. This seems like it will help.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product When applied to clean hooves and let dry, it is a great product for strengthening hooves. I like to put it on before washing a horse to keep moisture out, and also before turning them out if muddy.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from seems to work very well! We started using this on our horse's front feet to seal up the nail holes from his shoes.....

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Toughening Solution My farrier suggested this product, and I use it whenever I have a horse that needs a little work on their feet. Great product, stays on for a while, and does its job. Love it!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from tough as nails My farrier suggested that I get this product for my gleding. He goes barefoot and recently got a crack in his hoof. This stuff is Great! It's been 6 months now and the crack is almost grown out. Thanks for saving his foot!!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from It works! During a MN summer, my horse is working in a sand arena and is stomping flies in the pasture. Her feet tend to get dry and shelly. Last summer, I tried Tuff Stuff and was very happy with the results. Once a week I put it on the nails and around the lower part do her hoof. The shelliness was gone and no loose or lost shoes.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best I have used My horses feet are naturally brittle (appaloosa feet) and ever since I starte using Tuff Stuff he feet have stayed so healthy and clean looking between trims. This is the best stuff I have ever used and it WORKS!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonder Worker My paint gelding is now 14 and for well about 14 years his hooves are a great deal of WORK. I have been using this product for about a year and a half now and will continue to use it! With a new supplement and this product we are making leaps and bounds!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great!~ Worked great to help get my horses feet back under him. He was on irrigated pasture and this helped keep his feet from drying out completely!
    Date published: 2012-09-14
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I use this on my shelly footed TB mare immediately after she's shod and about once a week thereafter. I've noticed a HUGE improvement in the 6 months I've been using this product, her feet are much harder and she hasn't thrown a shoe in months. Even my farrier has commented on how much better she looks!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great hoof protectant I used this product several years ago when I was bathing my grey mare for shows every week but she has been retired for 5 years and I forgot all about it. Last year I moved to coastal Carolina and we started having a terrible time keeping her shoes on. They are corrective and necessary to keep her sound and I tried all the products the locals recommended with no luck and this product popped into my head. I've been using it weekly for 2 months now and we haven't lost a single shoe! It's economical as well as one application a week is all you need. It lasts forever.
    Date published: 2011-10-12
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice shine Easy too use product. It dries fast, though has a strong smell. It gives the hooves with a noticeable shine. I have not noticed too much off a difference in chipping though. I apply it about twice a week.
    Date published: 2011-07-31
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from It works but has drawbacks. This stuff does actually toughen up hooves but I don't like using this long term because it contains acetone and that does dry out the hooves over time...acetone is nail polish remover basically. It doesn't go very far either so if you are using it to toughen up hooves in the shortest possible time while starting a horse on hoof supplements it works great for that but not for long term use. There are better products out there.
    Date published: 2011-06-28
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from always a good choice! my mare was throwing shoes left and right, and ripping hoof off with them, as soon as I started using Tuff Stuff my farrier noticed an incredible difference! I will always use this product and recommend it to friends

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My horse seems to almost have thrush problems.I use tuff stuff to keep his hoof from getting to moist .The only problem is the stuff will dry up fast in the bottle . But its good stuff.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Keeps Hooves Healthy I have a thoroughbred with sensitive feet that I've been using this product on since he was trimmed last. I've been using it about twice a week and I think it has really helped strengthen his hooves and keep his shoes on longer. I wish this came in a bit bigger bottle though, because I've been going through this one very quickly. Also, I wouldn't necessarily call this a "show quality cosmetic" ... It makes his hooves shiny for about 15 minutes, but they get dull again after that so unless you plan on applying it right before your class, I'd go with an actual hoof polish. For every day use though I really like this product.
    Date published: 2011-03-06
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Interesting Don't have a formal opinion yet on this product but I will say this, after one application on two different horses, it used up alot....
    Date published: 2011-02-04
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product! My APHA mare has soft soles. She's barefoot and only has problems after being trimmed. She's ouchy for a few days after being trimmed, even with my farrier leaving some extra sole for protection. He suggested that I try using Tuff Stuff instead of putting shoes with pads on her. It has done wonders. I apply it right after she gets trimmed and every other day for a week. Then I go down to once a week depending on the weather. I wouldn't be caught without it in my tack box!!! I love this product! She's still barefoot and not nearly as ouchy after being trimmed. Plus it helps keep the hooves from cracking.
    Date published: 2011-01-17
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Okay Product I use this as my show hoof conditioner. It does not last very long and the hoof quickly looses it's shine. It easily picks up dirt and has to constantly be reapplied. I don't know how it works as a hoof "toughener", but I would not suggest it for a show cosmetic. At the next show I will be trying something else.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Tough As Nails! My horse has never been without shoes, but this winter I decided the take off his hind shoes. I started using this product about 4 weeks before the farrier removed the shoes. He has not had a single problem and his hooves are still in excellent condition! Even the farrier was impressed with how strong and resilient his hooves were after the shoes were removed!
    Date published: 2010-12-11
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Helps some with chipping hooves. Tuff Stuff helped some with my horses chipping hooves. I had to put it on twice weekly, because it wore off quickly.
