Actually, I prefer to use a non-oily human hair conditioner. Dancer hates baths, and I don't have to rinse it out when I'm done, no matter how much I have to use.

I've always used detangler. Just get a big cheap bottle, (cheaper the better) and start from the bottom and work your way up.

My mare came in with burrs all through her mane and tail. I used mane and tail detangler (cheap bottle) and a lot of patience and cursing under my breath, but got them all out.

This was Hunter one time after being in the field and I used Cowbpoy Magic - love that stuff. It took me and hubby a long long time to get them out without ruining his mane and beautiful forelock.

Golden Horse and shaggy like this.

Since burrs are usually dry we soak the mane and keep soaking it. It seems to soften the hold burrs have. Leather gloves and plyers and a ton of patience.
