You know how you can buy hoof polish that is glittery? Well, if you don't want to spend a lot of money on it, what I do is buy clear hair gel and mix it in any container you want with your glitter of choice. Does anyone know this trick?

I haven't heard of it, but it seems to make sence. Twinkle is so expensive (in US it's like, $17 for a tiny bottle). Anyway, just make sure it's horse safe, and it says "Animal safe" (around those lines).

If the gel stays....sounds great! Lol

I've had bad experiences with the glitter. It stuck to a past horses hooves and we couldn't get it off. Dried out his hooves bad and caused cracking...

Yeah, suprisingly enough, it does! Lol. It is a little tricky to get off, so the only thing we use it for is when we have contests at the horse camp where it is "beauty day" and we get a ton of paints and glitter and we paint the horses! We put glitter in their hair, paint them WITH WASHABLE PAINT OF COURSE and paint their hooves, too! If I get a chance, I will upload a couple pics of what it looks like lol.

When BluMagic said that the horse glitter stuck to the hooves, it is because of the gel that they put in the special brands (dont remember them at the moment) but the clear hair gel makes their hooves "soft" and "smooth" if that's the correct wording... (OMG Im an english major and I don't know these things....eek!)

Personally I think glittery horse polish is rather pointless unless you feel like making your horse look pretty which is rather immature, not dissing on anyone who has play-days with the ponies. But it makes sense.

Personally I think its cute. I have seen it at the state fair. The young girls all in their bright colors, the horses all spiffy and sparkly. I don't do it but I don't show my horse, but if I was a young girl I would want to do girly things to my horse like put on glitter at shows :)

Ha ha this is quite funny because we use glitter hair spray on our horses rump when we do checkers and sharks teeth
