Washing my horse

I want to give my horse a bath tomorrow morning. Can I use head & shoulders shampoo & conditioner on my horse or no? Just wanna make sure I can before I do anything bad.

Yes that's fine. I don't like to use people shampoo on horses, but it's not bad. Just don't bath too often or it will dry out there skin.

Actually, no you can't. Head and shoulders, or other anti-dandruff shampoos, have pH levels that are different than horse shampoos and can really irritate their skin.

Go to your local tack store, and pick up a bottle of Mane and Tail. Its 6 or 7 dollars, I think, and that's a shampoo and conditioner, for you AND your horse, all in one.

I'm not into starting a whole argument here, but I have used it many times on Gidji, who is an itchy horse who often gets flaky dry skin and it works wonders. I think though that its all about the sensitivity on the horse, so while it may work for me, it may not work for you.
