    The one in MD is good. But the one in PA usually is great. They have much better arenas there, so trainers like team penning come (they can't do much in MD complex). PA one going to present Josh Lyons, Parelli technique, Julie Goodnight (she's at MD too), Lynn Palm (she's at both), etc. So will see... Lol!

    how much do you want to use on the mane? Do you need to wash the mane before you apply the MTG?

    No I don't wash the hair first. I just do a drizzle at the roots and rub it in. Then I put some in the my hand and rub my hands together and work them through the mane. I use very little, mostly concentrating on the ends. Then brush, brush, brush from the roots to the ends. If you use too much it will be a greasy yucky mess.

    I love Cowboy Magic too. ShowSheen is great to use as well, but I think Cowboy Magic works the best even on dirty hair.

    There is no equine product in my mind equivelent to cowboy magic. It it and amazing detangler and keeps the mane soft and nice for days.
    Show sheen is also nice.
