Question What is the Best Hoof Dressing to Buy?

Ok, so I have tried: Feibings Hoof Dressing, Rainmaker, and Absorbine Hoof Dressing and by far my favorite is the Rainmaker because I like the thicker hoof dressings because I feel like they moisturize better than the thinner more liquidy ones. BUT I can't find the Rainmaker anymore and I want to branch out and try another different brand. So my questions is: what is your favorite hoof dressing or, in your opinion, what is the best hoof dressing?

Additonal Info: I obviously want a thicker type of hoof dressing but I also want one that looks great in the show ring, because I would rather spend my money of something that works really well, and looks great in the show ring rather than buying a hoof dressing AND a hoof polish.

So what do you thing the best hoof dressing out there is? (or what's your favorite?)

Hoof dressings do not actually put any moisture or anything into the hoof and in most cases the ingredients can actually serve to deteriorate the hoof. You want the walls to actually be quite dry, as then they are stronger.

All I own is hoof polish for in the show ring. Were I to buy a dressing to serve as both a protectant and to make the hooves a bit shinier, I would recommend Keratex.

Good luck!
