    I have a paint mare... vinegar in a spray bottle works good for a quick fix and grass and manure stains.

    My horse is white AND LOVES TO GET DIRTY. I use Show Sheen on his mane and tail and Mane n Tail shampoo for his body also for his body once in a while ill add avacado oil to the shampoo and it gives his coat a nice shine after I rinse him.

    Try using a half and half mix of vinegar and hot water a scrub and soak away then use that cowboy magic yellow spot remover, NOT green spot remover, yellow spot...also White'n'Bright shampoo works best for my whites on my paints...but like everyone said DON'T leave it in too long or you will be showing a purple horse, it happened to a friend of mine when I was young and it was hilarious at the time but she couldn't show that weekend
    If you have last minute stubborn stains that you can't get out before showtime then babypowder is my savior...and cornstarch can be even better because it sticks better if it's really bad

    that stinks that she couldn't show. I had a friend whose horse got sprayed by a skunk. Well you know how they say tomato juice takes the smell away well........................................ she washed her horse with the tomato juice(she bought those HUGE camp sized cans) and the funny part is he was a leopard app. So he looked pink with black spots for about a week. (sorry about it being off topic. Just thought it was funny)

    That's why you don't buy a white horse

    I use the quicksilver. And for any touch ups I use baby powder. :)

    Bathe the horse the day before the show with regular shampoo...I would suggest Dawn's Dish Soap, especially for cleaning sheaths/udders. I use Martha's Blueing for manes and tails and white markings (but not on the face). Make sure you wash it out quickly, or you could end up with a blue/green pony. When you're finished, scrape all the water away and spray everywhere with ShowSheen unless your saddle is prone to slipping, then leave the saddle area out. Brush it into the wet coat and then let the horse dry completely. You'll have to hand walk or graze them so they don't get anything on the coat until it's dry. Put a sheet on if you can but if you can't, the show sheen makes any dirt super easy to brush out the next day.

    Mix up a bottle of Wisk and water for stain removal at the show and take along the blueing. It could come in handy. XD Good luck!
