Kevin Bacon's from Handmade Shoes

Handmade Shoes not only manufactures some of the best quality shoes in the world, we are also the exclusive supplier of the world renowned Kevin Bacon range of hoof care products.

Maintaining the suppleness, elasticity, and balance of horses' hooves calls for the use of top-quality products, amongst other things.

Kevin Bacon's Hoof Dressing reflects this philosophy.

They have been making it according to traditional methods for more than 32 years. It is a 100% natural product made from animal fat and fresh laurel leaves that are macerated to release their active substances. 

The hoof dressing does not merely give the horn a pretty shine, it penetrates and nourishes the hoof deep down.

Using it regularly stops the hoof wall from drying out, protects it from dampness, and activates horn growth.

All of these properties make hoof dressing a remarkable product that is used and recommended by all riding professionals. 

Like all natural greases, the hoof dressing hardens in winter because it contains no solvents or crude oil derivatives.*

We have thus devised a winter formula that is 25% richer in oil to keep it soft and creamy even in colder weather. 

Hoof Dressing also comes in black.
In making this dressing, Kevin Bacon added a natural vine ash to give it a dark colour. The ash, which is also slightly antiseptic, does not change the quality of the balm at all.
