Smile What to buy???

Ok, here's the thing, Come fall and Spring i buy all the grooming stuff my ponies need. Now, i love grooming them and putting gels and sparkles on before carting. Or well, i will. I want to buy sparkle gells and ribbons but when i go to horsman's out let, there are way too many. Which ones?????? I want one that's cheap, but i don't want it to itch or anything, with the glitter and all . Any Ideas ??????

I don't have a lot of experience with glitter and gels, but I do have one brand I like. It's called Twinkle Mane and Tail Gel. They have a lot of colors and it's easy to put on and brush off. My pony doesn't seemed bother by it and she's extra sensitive Here's a link: Twinkle Glitter products fill the desire for sparkle and shine on horses of all breeds and professions.

Before dressage got rules against it, we used to Twinkle the horses' manes and twinkle music notes onto their quarters for our freestyles. It was far too much fun. But Twinkle is the best brand.

When Blue was a "my little pony" we used twinkle. It was too cute!

Twinkle makes awesome products. They also have body spray that ads shimmer all over with one easy step.

I have the the shimmer hood conditioner. Works well! I also run it through her tail and it always smells amazing and keeps it soft forever.

Oh and you know if you are on a budget you can always get human hair gel and loose sparkles from the craft section and make your own. It'd be a lot cheaper and would still look great.
