1.i mix listerine mouth washener and baby oil in one bottle and spray (or rub) in my horses mane see, the Iwill listerine kills the bacteria and the baby oil makes it soft. It is extremely soft
2.They I will shampoo....and I will also do conditioner too but if I plan to braid for once at a gymkhana I wont shampoo only conditioner makes it too slippery and it won't stay it
3. Brush it

MTG routine in the winter, MTG Magic Shine spray on every brushing the rest of the year. This year a couple of the kids did get roached, but hopefully this will be the only time I have to do that.

Canter main and tail conditioner spray really softens the hair and makes it all shiny I brush it regularly and make sure it's pulled at a nice length. If you find pulling hard you can by contraptions that will do it for you, just have a google!

I just heard today that products for ethnic hair work well in horses hair because of the coarseness. I use a really cheap shoe sheen knock off called satin sheen, it works very well actually. Spray let it dry and Gunnars tail is super soft. Mtg on the dock where he has rubbed it off(just got him a month ago..still fixing previous issues) and in winter I wash/condition and braid it up. Mane I used a razor comb (because his mane is somewhat thin and didn't want to pull out what hair he has) it's about 4 inches now so it can grow out evenly. Haven't decided what to do for summer. Probably let it grow.. I like paints with longer manes. :)

I don't do a stinking thing to my horse's manes except occasionally brushing them out and picking out knots. Very few of my horses get a bath and when they do it's only about once a year so no worries on what shampoo/conditioner to use.

Usually just unknot if they're looking bad, and brush them every time I groom, if they get a bath we use mane and tail conditioner and shampoo in them. Otherwise nothing much besides brushing.

My horses get bathed once a week with Orvus shampoo. After Im done rinsing, I shake the tail and spray with satin sheen, then I spray the mane and forlock with satin sheen. I wait till its dry and I brush it. And of course all my horses get brushed everyday. So their manes and tails stay nice, clean and silky.

This!

Every now and again I take the razor comb thing to it and shorten it back up, but other than that, Nothing. I usually do not even brush them, fingers run through only. When you only have a few mane hairs not worth risking loosing them in a brush.

Well, I just make sure to condition and wash it regularly....Which is....Once a month? Eh. I bathe before shows and such, and bag tails/braid manes if needed. I don't do much in the summer though. 'cause they don't get very dirty.

I don't know. I've never really done anything. For me, either horses do or don't have a good mane. Like my Barbie and Selena both have big, thick manes but Jester has virtually no mane. :/

I'm not doubting your knowledge or anything like that so please don't take offense. I've never used this Orvus shampoo but once a week seems kind of often to do a shampoo bath. I was always told not to shampoo so much because it can strip the oils from their coat? I'm not sure, again..not trying to start problems. Just wondering how often everyone else bathes with soap vs. Just rinsing off after a hard workout.
