After a really good bath I use BioSilk or Argan oil, kind of expensive but makes the hair very soft and shiny so very worth it.

I have an OTTB that I am showing in hunter jumper this month. I live in Ohio and I want to full body clip him. Would this effect the shine of his coat? Also would I HAVE to pull his mane? I would hate to be because it's so beautiful! Also any grooming tips you have please share!

Start a new thread ;) You'll most likely get more answers.

Buuuuut, I will bump this one for you.

When we clip the horses, I do find they look a lot less shiny but I'm sure if you tried to make them shiny..it will work :)

I tried and I got no answers lol! So I posted everywhere cause I really wanted to know lol. What would be my best bet you think? Full body clipping his winter shag or just intense brushing

I personally hate the hassle of clipping but it depends how furry your horse is..

I'd prefer brushing but that's just because my horse doesn't even grow that thick of a winter coat. :)

My TB has a reay thick coat and he's huge too. So all the brushing & shedding would take me hours lol!
