    grooming for showing although not showing

    I wonder if anyone could help with a question
    We have a 3 year old shetland
    Just starting to long rein ,and walk out

    We will not be showing him however we really would like him to look good
    He is obvously groomed and had a couple of baths last summer
    We used a bog stanard shampoo they do in the local farm shop what would you have in your grooming kit to turn him out
    Products that you swear by ,
    He's muddy at the moment as he rolls in the muddest place in the feild
    Why didn't we get a mud coloured pony ,it's a ****** to get out of his belly hair ,any ideas on that
    He's only rugged during really bad rain days ,not in snow or wind or cold
    As I said we probably will not show ,but would like now and again to turn him out as if we were ,anything that would help improve his over all health hooves ect
    Any suggestions to help ,is hoof oil still as good our local shop doesn't do it any more and we are just about in the next week or so going online shopping
    What would you buy if it was yours apart from another pony

    For his belly I would try using a curry comb,or a normal horse brush. And if its really bad I would use olive oil,with just a normal horse brush.I use olive oil on my horse for her main and I find that it works really well.I have the same problem with my horse.she is white,black,and brown.and the dirty stains don't look really good on her white paches....your horse is beautiful!!
