Omega Horseshine is absolutely the best skin and coat supplement I've ever used. It also helps with other issues, such as hooves and tying up. I'll never stop using it.
My favorite coat polish is Champion Pepi--it makes the coat really really shiny. Just don't put it on the saddle area if you're gonna ride
I really don't think there is a quick fix to this. My mare is on flax though and that has helped her coat alot. You could try that. I give her one tiny scoop with her am feed. Get the powdered kind because it digests better.

definitely lots of grooming. oily sprays are usually pretty good too, but be sure not to use too much.
We feed our horses one supplement, which pretty much takes care of everything. It helps their digestion, so that they can absorb vitamins from the food better, and those vitamins make their coat nice and shinyyy =]
the supplement is called Anima Strath. Here's the website: http://www.bio-strath.ch/en/anima.html
a lot of our friends use it too now, and they all love it. I'm not sure if itll do the trick in five days, but mostly it does within a week or two.
