Elbow grease and the right brushes, I use plastic or rubber curry combs to get the winter coat off then wash the horse removing the surplus water with bailer twine followed by vigorous brushing with a dandy brush (also good for removing mud) then a clean body brush with lots of wieght behind it, for every brush stroke clean the brush on a clean curry comb, all this creats a good base, regular repeatition makes it easier to mentain shine, using a goat-hair brush for a realy fanastic shine.

As someone has mentioned good indepth grooming helps spread the oils all along the hairs making them shiny. Also good internal health will make the horse shine. Feeding Flax seed is one of the easiest methods. Buy it fresh as whole seeds and grind it daily in a coffee grinder. Freshly ground it also helps the joints so has a double benefit.

1 cupful for a horse is fine daily.
