If it's just knots you are getting out, I wouldn't use MTG. I reccomend Vetrolin, or Mane & Tail Conditioner.
Vetrolin, I find, is the best and you can find it pretty much at any horse store and it retails for around $18.
It's a wonder for taking out knots and leaves it silky for a few days after use.
