    Get an old drink bottle with a lid like on the pump water bottles and fill it with a solution of half warm water and half listerine.
    Squeeze into mane and scrub in.
    Get another few bottles of warm water to rinse out after 10mins and then rub all hair that got wet till dry with a towel.

    This method minimises the water spilling onto other areas which could make the horse cold

    Just use some conditioner on his mane.If you brush his mane,then bathe him and brush conditioner into his mane and let it sit it should get rid of the dandruff.We had this problem once with a friends horse.Just do it several times and it should go away sooner or later.

    Good Luck!

    Okay, I washed his mane with Nizoral dandruff shampoo and used some human hair conditioner and then rinsed that out as well. It was a gorgeous sunny day, yay! I will do that a couple more times. If I just brush him on his body regularly no dandruff comes up, but if I scrub down a little he really does have dandruff everywhere. I may try that Dover product when it warms up enough to put a liquid all over. If nothing else it would make him shinier, right :) I broke down and called the vet. He said it is probably nothing, get a moisturizing product at the feed store and try that, but they could do a skin scraping, if it does not improve.

    I would definitely try healthy hair care, it worked great on my horse!

    I use Santa Fe coat conditioner and you can spray everywhere. Mane, Tail and coat. I would spray where the saddle goes though. It works great to get rid of body dandruff. It makes his hair really silky! I also heard infusium leave in conditioner for people works great!

    Thanks. Do you usually buy that from a catalog or your local store? Our feed store is a distance away but next time I go that direction I will look and see if they have a spray in conditioner.

    Okay, I ordered healthy hair care AND santa fe conditioner AND black as night. No store carries these products around here and by the time I paid shipping I may as well order at least three items. Dover was the only one that had all three products I wanted, they were a little more expensive but less than paying shipping for one or two of the things. What a hassle that was checking all the prices.

    Its the time of the year. My horse always gets dandruffy this time of year. You could also try putting vegetable oil or corn oil in his grain and some kind of coat supplement. I just started using grand coat and now his hoofs are shinning, he's getting dapples and looking good!

    Gook luck!
