How to acheive Dandruff free Tails and Manes!

Do you have a horse with a dark colored Mane and Tail? (e.g, black, brown)
Does this horse have dandruff on his Mane/Tail?
If your answer is yes, than you probably have tried everything to get rid of it.

Well I have your solution right here and its very economical.
  1. Wash your horse's Mane or Tail with your choice of Shampoo/Conditioner.
  2. Comb your horse's Mane/Tail after they completly dry.
  3. Grab a empty spray bottle and a bottle of white vinegar.
  4. Fill the empty spray bottle with warm water halfway full, after this fill the rest of the bottle with white vinegar.
  5. Shake the bottle for 1 minute.
  6. Spray the vinegar/water on the areas on your horse's Mane/Tail that are affected by dandruff.
  7. After spraying, towel dry the areas with a cloth (leaving the tail damp so that the vinegar/water can soak it) and comb again.
  8. Repeat steps 2-7 for 2 weeks or until the dandruff is gone.
*Note- if your horse doesnt have the proper nutrition or isnt healthy, this will not make a differnence.*

I have a mare with a black colored tail, in which dandruff occurs all of the time, until I tried this. Its a huge difference in the way it looks.

Interesting, I'll have to try that. Molly has an insane amount of it in her mane that just won't wash out!

Thank you for the advice!! I noticed this about my boy in mid winter.

If you put spray the water and vinegar mix on a rag and lightly rub the dust on your horses coat and it will remove the dust and the coat will shine.
My horses love it! Especially my two bay colored horses, they shine like you wouldn't believe it!
