The baby powder trick sounds really great and I bet it would work wonders on my friends Grey (he's faded to pure white) but how does it do on black horses, has anybody tried it on a black or dark horse?

I've never used it on a dark horse, but I imagine it would work exactly the same. I put it in my dark hair after riding sometimes, and then just rub it in and shake the excess out and after that its not very visible. Brushing with with a dandy and a soft body brush would do the trick to get the excess out. I tend to use loads on Caleb but on a dark horse being a little more sparing would be a good idea.

The baby powder trick sounds great, thanks for sharing! I'm going to stop by the store on the way home tonight and grab some to try out on my buckskin!

I've also seen people spray them with rubbing alcohol which then apparently evaporates the sweat? Don't know how well that works because I don't use it, but I know several who do.
