    When you show use baby powder on his white areas rub it in. It makes them whiter if you missed anything and its safe. Also make sure your use a curry on him every time you groom and try to groom him everyday. And giving him a bath the morning of the show will help him alot too.

    I use a supplement called Grand Coat and love it. I also think it helps with shedding in the spring.

    Like others said: nutrition

    Though I don't know how much that helps..
    My mare is fed 4 1/2 quarts of "Mane Menu" daily. She has been since before I got her. She's worked 5-6 days a week. We do hunter/jumper and trail rides/running
    When I first started with her she was an ugly color. Very dull brown, with a red mane and tail.
    I brush the CRAP out of her. Lots of brushing and more brushing.
    Using a soft brush will help distribute that natural oils and brush off all the little tiny dusties.

    This picture is her, just with lots of brushing and work(:
    Her coat was only brown, now the red pops out (:

    OH YEAH!!
    SOY!! Soy makes them super soft and shiny. I don't know how much it enhances color, but it makes them very soft.

    Soft and shiny? Wow! Too bad I'm allergic to soy -_-

    I'm stupid...what about a baking soda paste rubbed onto white markings (and rinsed obviously) to make them look whiter for a show? ...or cornstarch?

    You can get it as a feed through supplement.
    It's got lots of protein in it that's good for their hair(:

    If you're really that interested in soy, here's the wiki on it! Haha
