One of my favorite tricks to make a horse look good especially if need to do it quickly is take a very damp body sponge and wipe the horses whole body with it. Picks up all dirt that can't get off with a brush or rag and leaves a beautiful shine. And wont damage or dry out the coat like the sprays do. I once used this trick for a purchaser for a very high priced Thoroughbred back in KY at the farm I worked at. The buyer showed up about an hour early and had rained that night so she had come in covered in dry mud. Within about 10 min I had her gleaming like she was going to the sale ring. Works like a charm every time and is fast, cheap, works great, and everyone always has a sponge and a little bit of water.
