How can i get my paint horse to glow for HALTER CLASS

I have a beautiful paint horse I show in halter class, at the last show I went to there was another horse that looked like she glowed! How can I get my horse to glow? We have her on good feed and supplements, but I was wondering if there were any grooming tips or bathing tips to help? Also my other paint horse has a white tail, what products could I use to help keep her tail from yellowing

Any tips would be wonderful!!! I have a horse show coming up April 13th!!!

Getting that "glow" comes from the inside out. A good nutrition program and alot of elbow grease is what your looking for. You need to feed some Omega 3 Fatty Acids, Flaxseed Oil is great, and give it a few weeks to take effect.

Someone on here said they used Goop (like the human hand soap) to get their horse's white tail white again. Don't buy the generic stuff, though, because someone else used that and it didn't work.

^^Good info has already been said, but I also think that curb chain needs to be tightened if you need to pull the shanks THAT far back.

Linseed in the feed.
Also, bathe with a tiny bit of baby oil in warm water. I find also if you get a 500ml spray bottle, put about 5 - 10 mls baby oil, 10mls Lavender oil, 10mls eucalyptus oil and the rest of water, it works great as a fly repellent as well as a good shiner for touch up jobs :o)

Also, rug religiously and groom for hours on end It's hard work but def start rugging if you don't already

Flax(linseed) added to feed, bathe, coat conditioner, sheet/sleazy for night (w/tail wrapped or braided) and leave it on for the trailer ride.

I love World Champion Pepi for a shining coat while showing.

But yes, a truly shining healthy coat is made from the inside out, along with lots of elbow grease and the right coat enhancing spray, you can make your horse glow ;)

For the bay my suggestion is to keep him in a flysheet. He looks like he's faded from the sun. Also, love that pepi. Just don't put it where your saddle go's. For the white tail, use the purple shampoo, doesn't matter the brand. Also, cowboy magic in the main and tail...

Along with good nutrition, those are my suggestions...
