I use a little 5 gal bucket, put some soap in it, rest with water...ive got one of those hand mits that work wonders! Works better than a sponge, gets all the loose hair and really gets the dirt out...do one side of her body, spray it off, do the other side of her body, rinse it off, use conditioner in her mane and tail, rinse it off, than I do her face..my horse doesnt mind water on her face..but for some others, not so much...if you stand back a bit and put your thumb on hose hold the hose up and act like its raining...that doesnt seem to bother them as much as a harsh stream of water coming at them...all I have to say, is just go with the flow..you'll figure out what works for you and your horse.
Horses lend us the wings we lack.
