Mane and Tail hoof conditioner. Also works wonders on human hands!

As others have said, the best hoof conditioner is proper management.

The only product to ever touch my hooves is not your typical one. There's no 'sealant' factor that ends up keeping environmental moisture from being absorbed.

I use Ecolicious Equestrian's Hoof Therapy. It's an all natural oil-based product with anti-fungal properties. While I'm rarely trating any specific, as our boys have healthy feet, this product certainly doesn't hurt!

Hemms, if it's oil, it is sealing the hoof. If your horse's walls are healthy & crack free, they are impermeable anyway - it's not moisture getting through the stratum externum that's an issue - that doesn't really happen regardless of goop.

I live in Arizona and dry feet have never been a problem. Only wet, like in the winter when it's muddy and I can't keep their pens clean.

I don't use hoof conditioners at all.

What I do use, if their frogs are yucky and getting thrushy is Durasole. I love Durasole for thrush and I have occasionally used it for sole hardening as well. Actually, I bought it for sole hardening but now it is my favorite treatment for thrushy frogs.

Other than that, I never get into hoof topicals. Just never saw the need.
