Try any specifically designed for horses shampoo. I have never had any horse shampoo leave blotches, I have used the following, Absorbine's superpoo, Mane & tail shampoo, Vetrolin shampoo, Citronella shampoo (that one made my horse shine up very brilliant), Rio Vista shampoo and a few others I can't remember, all worked well. Some people on this forum have good results with human shampoo but I have never tried any human hair brands, sorry.

Changing shampoos between equine shampoos will not harm your horse's coat, however shampooing too frequently with certainly dull it. Even when I am in heavy show season I will not bathe a horse more than twice a month.

Orvus is a great shampoo. I would venture a guess that you aren't rinsing it well enough or are overusing shampoo.

You really shouldn't be washing with soap that often as you'll strip the natural oils out of your horse's coat.

It might have been that, I let my brother wash my horse for the first time (twice); he maybe not have rinsed correctly thank you so much!

It's not the product you put on the horse, it's how well you take off the product you put on the horse. Rinsing until absolutely no suds are left is key, it dulls a coat & could make them itchy under saddle. Also, if you have access to warm water to hook up your hose too, the shampoo will rinse off easier.

I like cowboy magic's rosewater shampoo and conditioner. I barely bathe my horse though, maybe 3-4 times a year. Max.

I use Mane & Tail Shampoo and I also use Mane & Tail Detangler for the tail.

I use Mane & Tail. I also use it for myself. Used to use more expensive salon stuff, but when I used the Mane & Tail on the horse, I realized it was pretty mild, foamed up easily, and washed out easily too - so now I just use the same stuff my horse does. :)

+1 on the importance of washing it out completely...
