    Oh goodness no! Besides the fact (as stated) that it rips the horses coat of its naturally produced oils, if I bathed my horse everyday I would be out till midnight haha!
    Especially since here in N.c. The winters are brutally cold, so there is virtually not rinsing or bathing right now (which bugs me because she is always dirty).

    I as well only bath my horse before a show, or on a hot summer day just to pass time and give your horse that amazing smell:)

    If a dirty horse REALLLY does bug you though, try spraying your horse with a coat spray, waiting maybe 30 seconds, then brushing through it with a dandy brush. That has helped me get my horse squeaky clean (water free) for a while now:)

    I don't show (yet!) but I bathe my mare three or four times a year. And her tail and mane get washed probably six times or so. (She has an over two foot long mane and her tail drags the ground now, so when they when they get too filthy I wash them but not the rest of her.) I also hose her down with no soap when it's really hot, and she LOVES it.
