My Horse's Hooves???

On one of my horse's hooves, there is dried on dirt that just won't come off (it is on the top of the hoof not where you have to pick it out where you put on the hoof polish). I have tried with a higher pressure watering hose and a brush (not a stiff bristled) should I try with a stiff bristled brush or do you have another idea. Any advise helps!!!!!!!! Also what is the best way to get the hoof really really clean also how exactly do you put on hoof polish?

If it's just dirt, use a wire brush to scrub it off. If it's nothing coming off with a pressure washer (o_O) then there may be something going on..

The hose isn't too powerful just one that you can use to get dirt off a car that's all the hose nossel was. But the wire brush was a good idea though.

If it is not coming off with a high pressure hose, I don't think it's dirt. Are you sure it's not the periople?

Go for a fast ride in a morning - dew, grass (not short cut, but medium height) and the speed of horseīs legs movement will wash it off . Thatīs the way I do - pick the sole of the foot to get rid of small stones or whatever could be stuck there and then I go riding. After return the hooves are clean and wet, I apply some "hoof oil" (not sure how to call the ointment for hooves in English :)) to keep the moisture inside the hoof.
