Other than the food additives such as Black as Knight, or BOSS, etc. there is no way to keep a horse from sunburning unless they are true black. I have several dark horses that I show and during show season they are turned out in the early morning or the early evening, never in the full sun of day. I also use sunflower ultraviolet spray made by Healthy Hair Care. On my dark horses I use a shampoo called Silverado Silver ( for that matter I use it on all my horses from buckskins, to grays, to silver bays, to etc) It is also formulated by Healthy Hair Care. Double K makes a shampoo that is called Black Knight (sp?) that is a concentrated shampoo, several people on the mini/shetland circuit use it but I have not. Good Luck!!!
