Good coat comes from the inside out. With proper feed and nutrition she/he will have a nice shiny coat. Sunflower seeds!

There is lots of feed supplements, but the old standard is corn oil added to the feed, which I suppose is ok if horse isn't fat, because the oil is fattening. I personally use flax seed, and yes sunflower seeds would work too, anything that has a high content of oil would.

Opps, just read your post question...Which SHAMPOO? Best result I have had are with the Aborsbine products, superpoo, the whitening one for the paint horses. Mane & tail is good too, but I still like Aborsbine best. Basically any kind of shampoo would work if your horse has shiny coat to begin with, all the shampoo is doing is rinsing off the dirt so the natural shine can show better. A shampoo that rinses thoroughly is best, less residue on the coat the more it will shine.

that's right! It is too Champion tails is good as well I think. Same with all the "Glow" Products. As in glow chestnut, glow white ect. It is all very good. Some people even think putting pumpkin in a chestnut horses feed makes his coat darker. Tess had sunflower seeds in her feed and she is very shiny! But I think that the glow white shampoo works all the way!

Vitamen E supplement and brushing her well every day will give horse a shiney coat. Also - be careful not to wash (with soap, rinse off sweat is OK) more than once a week as soaps (i.e. Shampoos) will take the oil out of the coat and make it appear dull.

Its too cold to wash them anyways down here. Its winter lol Even brushing everyday will strip the coat of all the natural oils that they need in their coat to keep them warm and dry. Tess has a natural shiny coat cos of the feed we give her (copra meal is good as well to make it shiny. The coconut oils in it helps) I don't care how shiny she is in the paddock cos, well, no one cares but if they are healthy, they will naturally have a nice coat that shows good health. I use the cheapo stuff at the moment and it is working ok. I buy both the shampoo and the conditioner for only $10 each. We will have to go horse shopping soon Rylee!

I thought it was that brushing more will make your horse shinier? As brushing will stimulate and increase the blood flow and oil production.

You can also bath your horse with dish soap, it makes their coat very shiny and soft while not being too harsh on the hairs.

Horses are scared of two things... Things that move and things that don't.
