Not sure about baby powder, but I've used corn starch with good results.

I've used baby powder before, works just fine. Everyone I know likes to just dust it on, but I like to mix with water and "paint" it on.

I used to use baby powder all the time. Then I got lazy and bought the actual paint. My horse is a bay though so I just spray his legs black to make them a little more wow....

Thanks, how would I apply it if I just dust it on? and paint it on if I decide to?

This stuff works the best and lasts the longest.

A make-up brush or just your finger works fine to apply it, either way.

You don't want it falling onto his hooves as they need to be spotless, as in wipe them just before you enter the ring. Often the judge is judging before you enter the ring and that creates a favorable impression.

My friend used the chestnut kind and it turned her horse red :shock:

Oh goodness! I have never used the chestnut color, just the white for the socks, I borrowed it from someone at a show, worked great, quick and stayed on the duration of the show.
