I use human conditioner most often when I try to get this out. My stallion (seen on my picture) did this to his mane this winter, had a big knot and it was just not on it's way out. I gave him a big bath when he came back to the stables after being outside all the fall and it really helped to give a bunch of conditioner in to the mane, let it stay, and then pick it out with the fingers. olso to keep it away from knots while they are in stables I use detangler and shine from cowboy magic, but that is totally optional. :)

If they don't have horses in haven, I'm not going.

Cowboy magic detangler all the way, that stuff is amazing! Pour it right into the middle of the matt and work the knots out with your fingers gently - it will take time (you might be best to do it over a couple of days if she gets impatient) but it will work and you won't lose too much hair.

P.S. I feel for you, it is a horrible job getting those big matts out.

All horses deserve, at least once in their lives, to be loved by a little girl.

Oy yoy yoy! Gotta love kids...how would you not notice a wire in there, though? Anyhoo, glad she's in a better home now!

Rider and horse in perfect balance.
