    To add to the brushing and grooming advice...I've heard that brushes made of natural fibers (most commonly horse hair) are better for your horse's coat. The natural fibers will keep your horse's oils spread throughout his body.

    I generally use a coarse synthetic brush to break up any mud or debris then finish with a soft horse-hair brush (it's actually a shoe-shine brush, but oh well!)

    I seem to find that good feeding and good groomin does the trick pretty good but if ya just after that little bit more then I would try linseed but it has to be boiled in water till it becomes sort of a caramalised substance ill show you lol

    It makes it shine lol she need to be groomed but she's a bit dusty lol

    What I do is that on the day before the show, I will give my horse a bath in head and shoulders restoring shine 2 in 1. It will keep it looking good all week!

    I have about 30 year worth of grooming tools, but the best thing I found that works is a bath towel after a good groom, when abby went to show this summer all I did was hose her off before loading so she was air dried when she got to the show grounds

    from the inside out!

    Half a coffee can of rice bran and flax seeds that have been soaked all day will put a shine on a horse even dust can't erase.
