Keratex Mud Shield Powder is a highly-acclaimed, handy, easy-to-use powder which you puff onto horse’s legs for a cleansing and waterproofing action on legs which are prone to scabs and broken skin in wet and muddy conditions. This light talc will give your horse’s legs a breathable, resilient coat of powder that does not absorb water (and therefore does not become sticky). It also works by making the leg hair so silky that mud cannot grip on to hair or soften the skin underneath. Further to this it will assist the horse’s natural defenses against anything from mud and environmental water (such as muddy puddles and boggy fields) that might get into breaks in the skin and cause problems. This respected product is widely recognized by the equestrian community as a leader in its field.
Keratex Hoof Soak & Wash is a unique and incredibly economical wash or soak for the hooves and lower legs, which has been produced for those horses that would benefit from a cooling and cleansing 10 minute soak or scrub.
This is really effective for: soothing legs in muddy conditions with a cooling soak or wash; using in between poultice changes to keep hooves, legs, dressings and other equipment clean; maintaining hooves and frogs.
A 1 litre bottle will dilute in plain water to make 125 litres to give you plenty of scrubs or soaks for your money. Simply add a capful of Hoof Wash & Soak to half a bucket of clean water and you will find that this product will really go the distance for you.
Keratex Hoof Wash & Soak is a good addition to every grooming kit to help keep hooves and legs as clean as you can.
Keratex Hoof Shield gives a transparent super-gloss ‘top coat’ finish for hooves. It dries in seconds, so the hooves won’t pick up bits of hay or shavings as soon as you apply it, and it lasts all day. This lovely varnish leaves a crystal clear shiny finish. Keratex Hoof Shield is great for competitions and smart days out, or just when you want sparkly hooves!
Keratex Hoof Hardener formula is patented and includes a unique flexibility agent as well as a hardening agent, making this the perfect product to protect your horse from: brittle, cracked, soft or weak hooves; soft, sensitive or thin soles; repeated shoe loss; transition to barefoot; hoof damage.
This product will strengthen and protect shod and unshod hooves, to restore soundness after sensitive soles and to prevent existing cracks from laddering up or across the hooves. It works by cross-linking the keratins and proteins within the internal structures of the hooves, making hooves stronger from the inside out. Because it absorbs into the hooves, it will not ‘come off’ in the field, it will continue to work within the hoof whatever the weather and whatever the field conditions.
Since it first became available to horse owners in 1990 as the first product of its kind, Keratex Hoof Hardener has shown to improve hoof quality. Keratex Hoof Hardener is recommended by vets and farriers worldwide, including Olympic farrier Ian Hughes, and recognized globally within the industry as a leading product in its field.

Designed for wet weather use, Keratex Hoof Gel forms a protective, waterproof and breathable layer over the hoof, keeping hooves water-tight and preventing them from softening, splitting or breaking up in wet, muddy conditions. By stopping water from saturating the internal structures of the hooves, the hooves have the time, space and correct conditions for the horse to be able to restore hoof quality. So if you find that your horse’s hooves deteriorate, soften, throw shoes or become saturated in wet or humid conditions, apply Keratex Hoof Gel all over the hoof, frog, soles and heels every other day to restore the quality and strength in your horse’s hooves. Hoof Gel absorbs into the hooves and therefore will not ‘come off’ in the field whatever the conditions. Once the product has absorbed into the hooves you will see that water forms droplets that simply roll off the hooves like rain off a waxed jacket or water off a duck’s back.
• Hooves that have softened in wet conditions
• Horses prone to hoof crumble, weakness, breakage, punctures and cavities in the foot and sole
• Stabled horses or horses that suffer from hoof deterioration during wet weather
Available in 500ml and 1L bottles.
