    Any horse shampoo would work, just make sure its rinsed REALLY well. If soap is left up in there it would be a real irritant. Be prepared for there to be a big wad up in there if she has never been cleaned before
    If you can't get it rinsed don't use soap, just use your fingers :P

    I use this on my boy and it at least smells good. Especially good if you're a finger smeller like Vida. Yeah, yeah, I do it too. :) My horse even always has to have a sniff. Anyways, it makes the gunk easy to wash off yourself (and your horse) afterwards!

    I normally clean my mare about once every two weeks (or I try to). Thankfully, sh's used to me sitting under her and brushing her, and she doesn't even care about it. It must feel good to her. I usually just use a soft towel and water...

    You don't put it in the water. It's kind of like a goo...or gel. It gets really slippery when warm and makes the gunk/dirt slide off your horse easily. There's directions on the bottle. Some people use a rag. I've heard of people putting their hand in a tube sock for easy cleaning. Of course, with a mare, the job will be a little easier. You just rise it off when you're done and it's okay if some stays on (unlike soap).
