    Carr & Day & Martin Cornucrescine Tea Tree

    Part of the Carr & Day & Martin Cornucrescine range, the tea tree hoof oil is described as a “modern alternative to traditional oils”.

    It comes in a smart tin, which has a handy brush as part of the lid. The brush is small compared to others I tested, which I preferred as it meant the application was neater and more targeted, although the brush did begin to splay over time. It was easy to apply the oil as it was light and a good consistency – not too thick and not too runny.

    The product dries with a nice, natural-looking shine

    The oil is translucent, which makes it suitable for all hoof colours, so you can use one product on multiple horses. It also contains tea tree oils that have natural properties to support the hoof. It dries with a nice, natural-looking shine.

    This product is good value for money and it sits fairly middle of the range price-wise when you compare the prices per 100ml. Like most others, the directions suggest daily use.

    I found this hoof oil to be a great choice for maintaining good hoof quality. It has a light tea tree scent, which is pleasant, and boasts antibacterial and antifungal properties, too.


    H&H Approved – This hoof oil is a great option if you’re concerned about keeping your horse’s hooves clean and free of bacteria and fungus. It looks smart and isn’t sticky, so would be great for show days if you like a more natural look, too.
