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 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 works pretty wel too! Good luck!
