If you're looking for a really cheap option, just use the same shampoo that you use on your own hair! Horse shampoos can get a bit expensive but if you just use regular shampoo I can work exactly the same!

Orvus is fantastic. I wet horse, and then get some in palm and lather away.

Use ACV (Heinz) in water and sponge rinse off, kills any soap/suds. And leaves great shine too.

Love the Orvus too, a tub lasts forever.

If you look on the tub, it says it's a livestock shampoo.

I'm jumping on the Orvus bandwagon too. (I use it on my dogs as well.) Gets them nice and clean, the whites brighter, and as a bonus, it's great for fungal issues like rainrot.
