Ok, so I've always heard that you shouldn't bathe your horse too much because it strips away their natural oils and dries out their hair, etc etc etc. Makes sense to me. But just curious, has anyone ever actually dried out their horse's coat by bathing too much? And if so, how much were you bathing?
I'm just wondering because i've always heard this. But I have this paint horse I'm working with that gets a shampoo bath before every show (which is around once a week). And we just spent 2 weeks at a huge rated show where I shampooed him every day (Suave and Quic-Silver). I wouldn't suggest it, but I figured I'd keep shampooing him until I saw any signs of drying out. Seriously, NOTHING! His coat is still unbelievably shiny and healthy, no dandruff, no itching, nothing. I curry quite a bit too and maybe that counteracted the bathing? I don't know! Just wondering what your experiences were!
