NEED Good finnish/ shine spray!

Hello everyone! I was wondering what spray really works to give them that glassy look. I currently use show sheen but I see many other horses that look alot better and I was wondering what some other products are that work really well. I will be showing in model hunter horse classes and showmanship/ halter. Thanks!

I use Show Sheen. Really and truley, a shiny coat comes from good nutriton and lots of grunt work, aka grooming

Vetrolin Shine! It works just as well if not better than show sheen and it smells AMAZING! like liniment! It's also wayyy cheaper than the big brands

Thank you everyone for your advice! Maybe I will try some supplements, do they work for a nice coat?

A girl I worked with loved flax seeds. I think she just fed them whole.

The other thing that really work- Currying! Every day for as long as you have time really makes for a 'deep' shine. Always stands out from the ones who just have shine on top.

I will totally second Vetrolin Shine though!

Show sheen and coat enhancer supplements. But honestly as some have said a good healthy, shiny coat come from elbow grease and proper nutrition!

I use Eqyss Premier Natural Botanical Spray. It's a bit spendy, but I think it's worth it. It gets my boy so soft and shiny, and it's all natural! Plus, you don't have to worry about using it under the saddle.

Flax seed! It makes my chestnut literally shine in the dark. (I'm serious)

It's cheap, and contrary to popular belief, you don't have to grind it. Just feed about 1/4-1/2 cup whole with grain and in a few weeks your horse will glow.
