I just wouldn't use it regularly to actually condition, because it doesn't. If you can find it at Walmart, get some Palmers Coco Butter Bath Oil. Stuff is AMAZING and smells like chocolate! Win-win!). But it's not good for shows because the dirt sticks to it a bit.
Really? Its helping with my dead/split ends, and preventing from more; same with my gelding (he's the only one that has a mane).

It's something you need almost like air or water. ♥

The Palmers Cocoa Butter body oil works great. Regular coconut oil works great too, but in the winter it can harden so I would recommend it for summer use.

I also use that stuff for my hair and it works miracles!!
I also love their shampoo. If you bathe your horse on a humid day you can smell the coconut for hours!!
I also like equyss (not spelled right I think) as an alternative to the item you listed

one of the other forum folks was talking about this stuff... so I went and bought a bottle of the certified organic virgin coconut oil and started using it in my geldings tail.
I now have a very serious emotional attachment to his beautiful, soft, shiny black tail. It's almost irrational. Hahahaha!

Life seems mighty precious, when there's less of it to waste.
