Mother Stuart's Liquid Bluing added to your favorite (cheapest) shampoo or conditioner will do the same thing without costing a fortune. I've had one bottle of bluing for my dogs that has lasted over a year!

I just gave Ahab his last bath of the year, and I used Eqyss Micro Tek mixed in a five gallon pail of hot water, and then Aussie shampoo for emphasis. He came out fluffy and sweet smelling!

I love my Kohnke's Kleen-Sheen, great stuff!!
Conditioner I use whatever is on sale at the supermarket ;)

My comp horse also gets hot oil treatments with 'Hi-Shine hot oil' every time I wash him, and gets sprayed with diluted Hi-Shine every time I ride. Brilliant stuff!!!

I've been guilty of using olive oil to detangle a mane and oil the "scalp". It works on the tail too of course. That's the only conditioner I use... The only problem is that it looks good for about 10 minutes and then gets very dusty. :(

Tarpan, I'm not sure how readily available it is in the US, I know that a few of the Aussie suppliers do ship there though, but see if you can get your hands on some 'Hi-Shine' oil. It is FANTASTIC!!! You use it as a hot oil treatment, so put some in a bucket of warm water, sponge liberally over the horse, shammy off the excess water then put an old blanket over the top. It will soak right into the hair and skin, and makes the hair increadibly soft and shiny, and he skin is so much healthier.
My gelding had a god awful coat through winter after being clipped and having living out in a paddock for 12 months. I had a Dressage Championship event on last weekend and he was still holding onto quite a bit of the awful dry, yellow fuzz. Gave him a good once over with Hi-Shine two days before, and he looked a million dollars for the comp.
Also use it on my 2 year olds tail, who tends to get a lot of dandruff - Hi Shine has cleared it up completely and his tail is beautiful. Best bit is that it actually encourages the coat to repel dirt, and it doesn't 'coat' the hair like all of the sillicon based detanglers.

Great stuff, I'd highly recommend it.

I use any shampoo and conditioners that are on sale..The initial "Get Clean" can be done with any safe on horses product really! I agree they all work the same!

I put the money on the extras like MTG [which as a show handler/groomer.. is my best friend] and Show Whitners. Absorbine, Quick Silver, etc..

I use Mane & Tail on my guy... My friend has a Welsh Cob, who has an amazing (thickest hair I've ever seen though) mane & tail, she uses Pantene Pro V on him, works wonders for the knots!

Well... I really love the Gallop horse shampoo... it makes them smell amazing, and makes their coats literally glow. Their hair turns oh so soft, and... I just like it. Although, since the price is a little too high for me, I only use it before shows. Other than that, I use Suave... Heh. Worth its weight in gold, though.

So glad you posted! The filly I am getting in about a month is a spotted chestnut, close to 90/10 on the white side, and I have been wondering about keeping her white. I will def. Be taking your advice, so thank you for sharing!!
