Do you use conditioner??
The title says it all. I was wondering if when you give your horses a bath do you condition their mane and tail??

Personally I don't but what does everybody else do and what's their opinions on it. (i.e. do you like you should or shouldn't.)

When i give baths I just use shampoo for every part =)

I always use conditioner. I treat my horses' manes and tails the same way I treat my own hair (actually, much better =P)
It keeps them nice and shiny, plus easier to brush

I use conditioner on mine. He doesn't have a thick mane and tail, so I don't want to rip out what little he already has! Plus, I think it looks cleaner and shinier.

I use conditioner, it makes the mane nice and shiny! It also makes my horses thick mane easier to comb.

I always shampoo and condition her tail, but if I am close to a show I don't shampoo or condition the mane because, like human hair, their hair stays better in the show braids if it's a bit dirty. In between baths I use a spray conditioner called Hair Moisturizer that really works. I use it all over her body and her mane and tail. It comes as a thick liquid and you mix it with water.

I use conditioner and anti frizz stuff, takes out tangles and smells good

If I shampoo a tail (which i honestly don't frequently) I do condition it. I never condition a mane and usually don't shampoo it before a show for the same reasons Irish Rider said. harder to braid. I did show a paint for a while that had a mostly white mane and i did shampoo that frequently but never conditioned it. and it was just fine!

I always condition when I bathe and when ever I brush his tail i use a leave in spray conditioner usually mane n tail

I always condition thier manes and tails after shampooing and sometimes inbetween shampoos. I also use a product called Silk THerapy to aid in detangling the mane and tails. They're appys so every little bit helps in keeping what mane and tail they have.
