Overview

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.

Reviews
Keratex Hoof Gel is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 56.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Game Changer I love the original Keratex hoof hardener. Bought the hoof gel as a substitute for turpentine. My mare's hooves were all chipped and mangled before I used this product. After ONE WEEK, her hooves were growing back beautifully and the bottoms of her soles were becoming harder. I am extremely impressed as I was not expecting a quick turnaround. My mare went from almost unsound to I was able to ride her on non-cement trails within a week!! I give this product a 4 out of 5 stars because it is more like a clear liquid than a gel. Made it hard to apply until I used a fresh turpentine brush.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Keratex hoof product I just purchased this for my horse that recently went barefoot. I like how the product can be brushed on all areas of the hoof. You do need to supply your own brush though.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from No brush I cannot understand why a brush or applicators come with this product. Do they want you to dump it on.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing for Wet Muddy Conditions! Every spring and fall in New England is mud season! This hoof gel has saved my horse feet. Put my horse, Lucky, on SmartCombo Ultimate supplement, which has biotin, and use Keratex Hoof Gel. It does an amazing job keeping the water out and restoring his feet. I love that it is safe to put on the frog and isn’t sticky like Venice turpentine. It goes on easily & quick drying. I use an old applicator brush that I had. My farrier told me to get this since it's been so wet. I've been using it for a few years. My horse's feet are dry and his shoes are staying on! Since starting Keratex, he has never had an abscess or gravel. I use it an average of 3 days a week. Lucky very rarely gets cracks or chips but maybe that is because of the regular application of the Keratex Hoof Gel. It is an essential part of my grooming kit. It does exactly what it says - seals the hoof and keeps water out. I can't say enough good things about Keratex products. They work!!!

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!
Date published: 2020-04-15
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!
Date published: 2018-06-13
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
