You can. It is a good idea to do a spot test first though to see if your horse will have a reaction. Use a bit on her shoulder or something and rinse it then wait 24hrs and see if all looks normal.

Equine shampoos are BETTER for the horse but I have used suave on occasion.
Mane and Tail is really cheap and good for horses and people.

If it's not made for animals/horses I would at least dilute it. Shampoos tend to be stronger then nessesary anyhow. Even on human heads.

I used to use mane & tail on my hair, far before I was around horses. I just liked it, and it was cheap. lol I've also used dog shampoo on my hair. :oops:

Think about it.A horse stands outside in all kinds of weather,Has lived outside for hundreds of years,And you are worried about a reaction from Shampoo? Buy whats cheap & go at it.:wink:
