The only thing that will truly get all the dust (or atleast the majority) would be a nice bath. Just rinse off your horse, fill a bucket with water and some shampoo, scrub away, rinse, and then let your horse dry. Make sure you put your horse in a stall while he/she dries unless you went him to roll and become dirtier than he was to begin with.

There are also products that kind of hide the dust for last minute cleanings. Showsheen is good right before shows or a photoshoot, but only use it occasionally because it contains silicone which can dry out the horses coat. I also use Pepi for extreme shine before shows. For everyday use I use Healthy Haircare Hair Moisturizer. It hides the dust quite well and also conditions the coat at the same time.

Vetrolin is always nice to bring dirt up on a horses coat. I gives and amazing shine and it doubles as an AWESOME detangler

Give a bath, and maybe keep a light sheet on her if it's really important.
I know how you feel, lol, Remi is the filthiest horse I've ever met, no matter how much I groom xD.

A good curry, with a bath. But if you just want the top of her coat to "look" clean...you can take a wash cloth, spray some rubbing alcohol on it, and then wipe it over her. It will NOT clean her...just make the top of her coat look clean...but if you touch her you will be able to see where after doing this...just an option! Good luck!
