Anyone use this?



Should I use a 2 in 1(poo + condish) or just shampoo. Do horses need conditioner? All the talk of bathing I see is centered around shampoo.

You can I always have as I can get a 5 litre bottle of it for 6euro! And it smells like apples so its great!! We have also used conditioner actually by accident once or twice thinking it was shampoo!! Didnt cause any problems and left his coat lovely and soft!! Would regularly use it in my connemaras mane and tail!

I would not use shampoos with anything added to it (such as vitamen E). The cheapo shampoos like suave are great and usually don't have all the extras added. I used a shampoo on my pony before pony club national competition years ago (I forget what brand, pantene maybe?), but it had vitamen E added into it. She got a horrible rash on her poll. We rewashed her with another shampoo to get any residue off, but the damage was done. It was soo raw I had to run out and buy wool covers to put on the crown of my bridle to ride her for the competition. Poor girl

I have used human shampoo and Dawn dish soap before. I tell ya, the Dawn works awesome for white horses or white markings! If you scrub on the nasty stains it will come nearly completely out. Just be sure you wash everything out.

However, I heard from someone that you should never use human shampoo on animals as it can damage the skin, but I don't see how that could hurt them. I've been using it for a long time and never had any issues even with dry skin or anything. My horses looked gorgeous last summer.

So suave seems to be reccomended by 85-90% of you. If it matters at all, should I use the " suave proffesionals" shampoo?


Or the "suave naturals" shampoo?:

maybe your horse was allergic to something in it. Because I've used pantene on over 10 horses and none EVER reacted to it. I use the shampoo then conditioner all over their bodys and manes and tails. Weird.

When not bathing for a show, I use mane n tail for my mare. It's a good, cheap shampoo, but still formulated for horses.
