Depends on the horse, some horses skin will dry out, some wont. If your horse is sweaty, baby powder (as I mentioned before) is very helpful, apply it with a dandy brush, and then use a curry to work it into the skin. If he's very wet, using a dry cloth as a curry to remove the excess sweat beforehand will make the baby powder more effective.
Also, I forgot to mention that the baby powder will help get rid of the sweaty smell and that in and of itself is helpful for curtailing flies.
