Keeping a Paint/Pinto Clean?

Hey there guys and gals!
My first horse Dixie is coming home tomorrow! She is a double registered paint and pinto and well, she is more white then I would like in a horse. But color doesn't matter to me as long as she is my best friend. My question today is what can I do to keep her from looking like a miserable mud pony? I know that dirt isn't going to harm her as long as she is groomed before riding. What are somethings that I can do to keep her a little cleaner... Other then bathing her every single day. Do they make a spray or shampoo that helps dirt from sticking? What do you guys recommend for whitening shampoos and sprays? Just curious to know this information ahead of time :)

During 2014 I am going to take lessons and train so I will be able to show in 2015. She is ready to show and she is amazing. But its me that will needs the training. Hehehe. Thanks again!

You're welcome! Hang on to those links, when you start showing, you'll need them. I have/had several pintos with lots of white, currently have a cremello stallion, and I use all those products and then some during show season.

I will go ahead, print them out and file them away in my horse binder that I've created. :) I would say that Dixie is 70% white, so I am going to need all the products I can get when showing does happen for us. Thank you very kindly again :)

White horses are born to roll in the mud, and we have lots of white here

Normal dirt tends to brush off quite easily - sometimes just a wipe over with a wet cloth or sponge - but not much more
Now the poop stains are another thing altogether, I like the Green Cowboy Magic stain remover about the best

That seems to be the case. They are like, oh we know we are white, let's make this harder for our owners ;)

Yeah, poop seems to stick more then dirt does. I will also have to consider picking up some of the Cowboy Magic! Thanks
