Can you use human shampoo on your horse?

I have some Garnier shampoo I didn't really care for and I don't want to just throw it away if I can put it to good use elsewhere. I have heard some people use suave shampoo but wanted to confirm.

I do. My vet said we could use human shampoo on my dogs, so why not horses too? As long as it doesn't dry the skin out. (Also, it's cheaper and it makes them smell AMAZING.)

I have and still do. Never have had any problems with skin drying. Usually use Suave. But Garnier is a good shampoo that uses a lot of natural ingredients so I doubt you'd have to worry about skin drying.

Hey, I use Mane and Tail on everybody, even me. =)

Yes you can. I use baby is soap free and smells like HEAVEN. It also makes tons of fun bubbles that rinse away easily. If you want some cute bath time pics - try the baby soap!

Yes, and it's a heck of a lot cheaper than all those equine products.

Whatever I have extra of.

Suave usually. I think right now I have some of that Aussie stuff in the wash bucket.
