pure white pony-HELP! please

I am showing in two days with a pure white pony- absolutely no markings. She has been rolling in the field lately and has stains on her legs and stomach :( Have already bathed her twice with quick silver, iodine shampoo, dish detergent, human shampoo, and hydrogen peroxide- NOTHING WORKS any ideas would be greatly appreciated

Try some cowboy magic.. that stuff works wonders.
You can also try warm water with some white vinegar in it. Once you get her clean, use Show Sheen to keep her slick so the dirt wont stick to her, just make sure you dont spray her saddle area with it.

The Cowboy Magic stuff does work really well. I think its the Crud Buster in a spray bottle. You should be doing a test on whatever you use on your horses skin. You wouldn't want her to break out in a rash before the show. :)

I have a white horse as well. I use Mane N Tail. I usually let it soak in for a while then I have to scrub, scrub, scrub. When shows are coming up, I wash Ble the day before and before the event. But I make sure I have a lot of time. I try to get bathing at least two hours early unless Blu is really bad.

Quick Silver has always worked fine for me.

Gold Nuggets Super Whitening Shampoo is the best! I love it to death, it will make them white in one wash and makes them feel like you just put Cowboy Magic on them :) I like it alot better then Quick Silver, though it works really well too.

hey i showed yesterday!
we didn't do to well (my medium pony did all the horse strides - nicely!) lol
but she was pretty clean. Her stain lightened but did not come out.
Anyhow, my trainer told me about Shapeley's Show touch ups
its basically spray paint for horses and comes in all colors!
I'm definiteley gonna buy two bottles
