I don't show anymore, but I am obsessed with grooming. I love grooming horses. Since I have always loved grooming, my horses have always had super shiny coats. My advice is to groom groom groom groom! It is relaxing and well worth it :) always go with rubber curry 1st to loosen dirt, stiff brush to wick it away, super soft brush to smooth and bring the oil from the bottom of the coat out. I also recently have been feeding my mare some vegetable oil to give her a little more fat in her diet and her coat has become quite shiny! Also for color, I don't use products. I use spices! Someone on here suggested to use paprika to bring out the color of a sorrel. I have tried it on my palomino and her summer coat is coming in pretty orange.
