I swear by flax seed. We do a 1/2 cup per day and wow... Its cheap, it's easy, and it has a great shelf life. Not to mention the colic protection and hoof benefits. The omega 3 simulates the omega 3 horses would normally get from fresh green grass.
The only downside is they may not like to eat it! If that's the case "omega horseshine" supplement is nearly 100% pelletized flax, but its more expensive.
If you insist on just topical shine, forget the products until show day. Get a nice gentle curry brush and curry every day!
A previous poster is right too! Its winter and they're all furry! Its warmer where I am so my guys still shiny (avatars from Christmas) but you may have to wait til it warms up to get an intense shine!
