I have the same goal as you! 6 months ago I got my dream horse, a Black quarter horse with a star, snip and 1 blue eye.
My tips to you:
-blanket her in a light, white UV fly sheet. I am going to buy a Kool Coat light summer fly sheet, it will keep her cool, keep flies away, and keep her black! (Black horses do better in winter, because black attracts the sun)
-I have heard of paprika keeping there fur black... it might be to late to try it, but if you do try it, stop before a show, about a week before, because it will show up in a drug test. (I am not trying this, this year)
-Black As Knight shampoo, I will be trying this in the summer.
The main thing I will be trying though, is keeping a blanket on her, that will most likely help the most, but if you want her whole body black, get a hood too, or fly mask for her face.
I am also very interested in what others have to say
