I don't leave any products on my horse. If I give a bath I will always make sure all the soap in out and also after a show I give a rinse off to get all the sprays and what not off... Im sure as long as it is marked for use on animals it shouldnt cause irritation, but you never really know.

HHC's pink spray leave in is amazing. You mix it with water and spray on hair and crest or tailbone and rub/comb in. What a good leave in conditioner does is soak into the hair shaft which conditions and makes the hair stronger. This gives the hair a chance to grow longer because it isn't breaking at a certain length. Now I have always used it with horses that are throughly groomed everyday and have a wet brush brushed through their mane and tail feathers (tails were braided and wrapped)/rubbed into crest and tailbone so everything stays very clean. I have seen horses with really brittle, curly, damaged hair grow straight, soft, strong and very long with the HHC's conditioner.

I use either MTG, Santa Fe Coat and Conditioner (with an SPF.. I mainly use that on Gem in the summer because he's white) and EQyss Avocado Mist detangler and conditioner.

I use the Santa fe and EQyss the same. I use it for both brushing out the mane and tail and also rubbing it into the tail bone or crest. I then leave the tail or mane.

When I use MTG, I put it in the tail bone or crest. For the tail, I do a loose braid and then vet wrap it. I did this with Vega and her tail grew in length and thickness. I have not applied it to any manes, but I plan to this winter to both Vega and Montana.

When I bathe them, I use Mane and Tail conditioner, but I always wash it out.

I went to a hairdresser and got a spray in leave in conditioner. Obviously, only use it on parts of the horse which won't touch skin! Ie the mane (have your arm under it so doesn't hit the neck) and the tail (the skirt of the tail, under the bone). A horse's pH level of the skin is different to humans, so in general using shampoo/conditioner and not rinsing it out is a big NO-NO, however if it IS only on the hair, and not the skin, there's no problem. Tends to be cheaper to get the spray in stuff from a hairdresser (or even your local supermarket) than horse-designed conditioner.

How is a leave in conditioner not clean? What about human leave in conditioners? Mane & Tails shampoo and conditioners are made for use for humans as well as horses and I know many people (not myself) that use them.
