These posts are beginning to remind me about our hurricanes. The horses are always sparkly clean after a good Category 3 runs through!

Maybe you can temp her playful side. Put the hose near her mouth and see if she plays with the water. Mine is like a dog that way. He'll put his lips up and bite at the water if I hold the hose there. Once he saw it as a toy, I could spray him anywhere.

I spray my horse in the face too. Meaning, I've sprayed the hose upwards and let it fall down on them like rain. Or I keep it at a lower pressure and use my thumb to spray her cheeks and forehead. I also find it helpful to run the hose up their neck towards their face and let the water run down their face from between the ears.
