    Leovet Hoof Lab Elastic Cream

    This hoof dressing from Leovet has a creamy texture, which when I applied to my hand felt quite moisturising. I really believe this formula will nourish the hoof.

    The application of Leovet Hoof Lab Elastic Cream was different to all of the others I’ve tested – you squeeze the bottle and it comes out onto the bristles, which you then apply to the hoof. This had its pros and cons. I really liked the idea that it was all in one and that you could use the bristles to almost massage it in, but in reality it just got quite dirty.

    It was easy to use on the hoof wall, but due to the shape of the tube top, it was difficult to apply to the grooves in the sole. This could be done more easily by squirting the cream onto a hoof oil brush.

    It dries nicely with good shine.

    The instructions on the bottle suggest it should be applied to the hoof walls, sole and frog two to three times a week. Following these instructions, I found my pony’s hooves stayed well moisturised.

    The tube only holds 200ml, which means it didn’t last as long as other products. It also has a high cost per 100ml when you compare it to other products, but this if you’re looking for an effective hoof dressing it’s worth a try.


    Although it’s not the easiest to apply to the sole, Leovet Elastic Cream is a really effective and moisturising hoof dressing. It’s not a show day dressing, but is a good option if you’re looking to maintain and improve hoof quality.
