What shampoo and why?
I love hearing why people love the products they use.

So tell me about what shampoo you use, and why? Why does it work the best for you/your horse? What shampoos do you dislike? Why is that?

(Sorry, I'm full of questions today.)

I like to the use Alto Vistas red shampoo on my lease gelding. Its really makes his coat super shiney and very red. But for the other horses I really like the Vetolin shampoo. It seems to really work for my paint espically.

I tried the shapleys hi-shine shampoo, and it just didn't do a good job :(

What are you likes/dislikes?

I really like Superpoo made by Absorbine, and Eqyss medicated shampoo.
He gets really nice and soft with the Superpoo. He just looks and feels clean after a bath in that. The Eqyss Microtek is really nice on his coat when he doesn't need a major deep clean.

For tails, I like the human Tresseme naturals, and any regular conditioner.

I've pretty much always used those, so I don't have anything that I don't like that I can think of.

I use cheap Suave shampoo and conditioner from the store. It works really well, and rinses out easily. If it is good enough for my hair, it is good enough for my horse's. AND, it is much cheaper than "horse" shampoo.

Just stay away from apple may come back to a bald horse, if he has pasture buddies!!!

I use Quic Silver for any of the grey horses I ride, and Quic Color for any colors! haha. It really brings out the colors and then I just spray some Cowboy magic super body shine on once the horse drys!

I always have bought Superpoo for decades. Lately I have been lucking out winning shampoos & conditioners or getting samples with entry packets at shows. I have a few bottles of mane & tail, some neat smelling menthol shampoo (sorry can't remember the name), and am just finishing up a nice smelling bottle of rio vista (sp?). I buy absorbine superpoo because it's a habit, it's the first actual "horse" shampoo I ever purchased about a hundred years ago. The smell reminds me of my youth (so does Brut cologne but that's a different story, different forum) and it's non-tearing, I got a glob of it in my eye once, no stinging.

I've used Orvus for as long as I can remember. Comes in a big container, lasts forever.

Sauve shampoo and conditioner...its cheap and i love all of the different "flavors" Beau may only smell good for an hour, but at least it is better then him stinking. I like coconut and fairy berry strawberry or something like that. I also use the detangler too if I don't want to use expensive cowboy magic everyday.

I just use the traditional Mane N Tail. It isn't cheap, but I don't bathe too often so it lasts me forever.
