Horse Shampoo For Palomino

Last year I started showing my palomino mare under saddle and we didn't blanket very much because we groom 3x more than If she wasn't being shown. I've been using White N' Bright and Its not working very well, I was told by somebody that boarded at a barn we were showing at that had 2 palomino geldings to use it. It pretty much takes the majority of the stain out but you can still see a 'spot' on her coat. Like a shade or two darker then her actual coat color. I was wondering If anybody knew of a brand of shampoo that works well on light coated horses. I don't want her to spend 3/4 of the show season with a sheet on. But no matter what mud tends to stick like glue to her, I haven't shown a white/palomino horse in years and I can't even begin to remember what I use to use. It seems like everybody keeps giving me sprays and color enhancers, I just mostly want a stain remover that won't affect the coloring of her coat. Somebody told me Quic Silver but other people say it changes the color of the coat, specially If there left In sun light??

i love quick silver shampoo and its never changed the color of my horse's legs. my friend has a very loud tobiano black and white gelding, she uses that also and has never had a color issue. the only other thing i'd recommend is the vetrolin blueing shampoo and green spot remover. i've had excellent results with both.

lol, I normally use gloves so the hand coloring should be a problem. I'll pick up a bottle and give it a try :).
