since he is a show horse, I would think, tha altering his color, would be a big no no.

If he has silver shot through his tail? You can wash/rinse it in White Mink shampoo for people, it is usually at wrongmart on top shelf, and is in grayish bottles with pink tops, and is for women who have gray/silver hair and helps to take the yellowish tint out of it. Doesn't dye it per se, just brightens the silver strands.

I used to use it on WC French Commander when I groomed Saddlers. It also seemed to leave the hairs so that when fingerpicked out after washing, they were more "separate" and left a really full tail.

It really made his tail, which was tremendously long anyway, glisten in the lights of the ring.

But, if your horse is in training, the grooms should be doing all of this, not you, unless you are grooming for training barn your horse is at? Trainer may not want you messing with groom's business?

Do most training barns have dedicated grooms?

Maybe at upper level barns.

I was thinking, if your horse is at a barn that has a dedicated groom, you probably own a pretty expensive horse and wouldn't even think of changing their hair color. If you can afford a barn like that, you probably could go buy another horse with the colors you want. Not trying to be mean, but just saying.

I don't know much about other breed shows, but at appaloosa shows, changing the color of any part of the horse is not allowed.
