Making a gray horse shiny?

You can easily find shiny brown and black horses, but I guess because grays are lighter in color, the sun just kind of bounces off of them? I have never seen a shiny gray horse before. That could just be because I just have never seen a shiny gray horse before, or does the gray color just not reflect as much light? I have a gray and would love for her to be shining come show season. Is there something that will help that?

Curry curry curry!!!!!! I've had a gray and all I did was curry him. Of course and soft brushes and hard brushes. But curry!!!! Leave out bathing if at all possible and just curry the dirt out. My best friend had a grey too, well he was flea bitten but he was extremely shiny, we'd turn on a radio and just curry our horses. Not only is it a massage for them but its good for their coats!

I think it also depends sometimes on what shade of grey. Like, my white arabs don't really work up a good shine, but a darker, more dappled grey, will work up a pretty good shine.

Now that my grey has lightened up it is harder to get him to actually look shiney even though his coat feels sleek and soft likey a shiney horse's would.
