    So, I've got this grey horse and I was wondering if anyone had some quick good ideas to get him clean at horse shows.

    Orvus works great. On the legs and mane and tail, I use Suave shampoo, it gets the dirt out for me. You might need some sort of whitener if your horse is really stained, though, mainly for the mane and tail.

    What shade of grey?

    He's kind of fleabitten (very very light spots) until his rump, which has dapples on it.

    Superpoo works really well, but if theres alot of dirt/stains you might want to get whitening shampoo.

    Cowboy magic has this stain remover that comes in a spray. I used to have it for the white socks on one of my old horses. I have since only bought horses without white, one reason being for the stains

    I don't remember what it's called but carrying some last minute sprays of that kind will help.

    That or buy a horse that has no white

    We just use ordinary shampoo but shampoo twice! It works well for us.

    Cowboy magic worked well when I had horses with socks. I would keep a sheet on, some jammies and the legs wrapped.

    One big reason why I have and will never own a grey.

    Vetrolin green spray works exceptionally well...
    For shows or clinics, I bathe my grey with just normal shampoo and get him all clean, and then I bring either the vetrolin or cowboy magic with me in case I need a quick emergency scrub :)
