I need a good leave-in conditioner or human (but to use on my horse!). His mane and tail are so dry!

I've used Aussie Hair Insurance Leave-In Conditioner on my own hair. I really like their products for myself... I haven't used it on my horse, but it's a spray so it might be convenient...

Heck, I'm cheap. I go to the dollar store and get whatever "flavor" I fancy at the time and just slather it on.

If it gets a build up, after a few days, you can just rinse out. Or you could dilute it with water and spray it on, instead of full strenght intially.

It weighs down frizzy fly-aways. It's cheap, and I've never seen any of them irritate the horse's skin.

Any human leave in conditioner works great. You can find some reasonably priced at the local Drug Store. Will be cheaper than Horse Leave In's

Also, if you go to a sally's beauty supply (or equivalent) you can buy a cholesterol treatment....leave it in for 5 mins and rinse about conditioned!

Sally's have a generic paul mitchell brand of their "super skinny". It is a serum that I leave in his mane and tail. Total shine, no flyaways and no tangles. Awsome stuff and only its only about $8.

Mane and Tail conditioner. The horse/people brand is a good one. I know of a lady who owns drafts and she leaves that conditioner then wraps up their tails. It grows like crazy, even works better than MTG.

World Champion Pepi, the best coat conditioner ever. This aerosol type spray is for horse coat condition.

I get the nicest smelling cheap conditioner that I can and mix it with water in a spray bottle. And spray through. Its just as good as the "proper" stuff I bought for $20.

I use Mane n' Tail ! It works great in Crickets tail. It can be used in wet tails , dry tails, it can be washed or it can be left in and you can use it in your own hair!
