Beautifying a white horse...

At my school all the seniors have to do a thing called the "Senior Challenge" (it's supposed to have something to do with our "future career") and for my project I chose to get Lacey skinny (she was a major chub monkey) and work with her on her training issues. We have to have documentation and since the major part of my thing is Lacey's weight I'm going to take some (I took before pictures and she was way gleaming white) after pictures...but she's pretty dirty/not white right now. She's almost all the way shed out so she's starting to look much better but I'd like some tips about what to do to get her back to gleaming whiteness. I'm definitely going to give her a bath, with whitening shampoo(and really let it sit on her mane and tail since they're yellow), this week sometime if it's nice but I need other ideas too. This is what she was looking like on Friday, sorry that's she's moving I didn't think about getting an actual prettiness shot :I

i think the whitening shampoo is pretty much all you can do to get her white.

With white horses, first I use Suave shampoo. SCRUB SCRUB SCRUB! Take your time and get in deep. It's cheap and does a great job of cleaning (which whitening shampoo doesn't always do. plus, it's expensive!). Rinse off the suave and then then I take a good whitening shampoo (I like Quiksilver), slather it on, and leave it to do it's job a good 15 min or so. That's what really makes them glow. I hang on to them while they're drying so they won't roll and then spray some Show Sheen onto their tail and legs to repel dust. Some of the really stained horses will take more then 1 bath to really get white. Might depend on the horse, but i've never dried out a horse's skin.
