THe main ingredient in most all shampoos (dog, horse, human, etc.,) is surfantant of some sort - as it is in dish soap. In the summer when I am bathing them a lot, I generally wet the water with ivory dish soap - which only takes 2-3 drops per 4 gallons or so and it doesn't leave a residue. Otherwise, it is difficult not to occasionally be a sucker for the high priced yummy smelling well packaged "this will make your horses mane/coat positively pop" shampoos. They aren't worth the money, but who can resist every so often? I also like Bonner's b/c you can use it for everything, it takes very little for a shampooing and it really "deep cleans", and it has the same ingredients as the base in a lot of "groomer's" shampoos.
There is just as much horse sense as ever, but the horses have most of it.
