Try MTG. That works on everything!

Ya i thought about that since its oil based...But i read on here somewhere that one side affect was dandruff....but then again i used it on his scars and his skin wasn't dry from it at all.

Eqyss Microtek Shampoo should take care of it. I believe Cowboy Magic makes a dandruff shampoo for horses also. You could try a human shampoo, but horse hair has a different pH level than human hair and it will most likely cause your horse's hair to become very dry and brittle.

I've spent most of my life riding horses. The rest I've just wasted.

I wouldn't use MTG... it gave my mare dandruff.

Head 'n' Shoulders works really well.

I agree with CloudsMystique, I'd try Head & Shoulders. Once it gets really warm out I'm trying it out on my mare... she has pretty bad dandruff too. Good luck!

Sorry guys I disagree with you, MTG WORKS!!! I used it on my arabian and no more dandruff, he had dandruff really bad on his mane, I put mtg on it 2-3 days a week and after about one month it is gone, and has not came back its been a few months.

I would wash the mane once a week with Head & Shoulders shampoo, no conditioner, and mix up a bottle of Listerine Mouth Wash and a bit of water and spray that directly into the mane every time you groom. Works wonders!

I agree with the Microtek shampoo, it works great. I have also used Infusium (for people) on dandruffy spots...it works pretty wel too! Good luck!
