It's the only thing I every put on mine's mane, tail or forelock. Helps if I need to untangle anything. Gives a healthy shine (while also being healthy for the hair). Is absorbed naturally so there's no need to remove it.
People waste a load of money buying "horsey" stuff for the manes and tails when all they need to do is stop by the grocery store and pick up some coconut oil.
