my friends have a grey horse and i know that you dont ever ever want to wash it with water if its a poop or pee stain
I always wash my mares (shes a paint) staines out with water, without a problem. Ive tried brushing with a towel, and all i got was a longer streak of stain.

With Romeo (Pure white horse) I bathe him the day of the show, and then showsheen him, the showsheen keeps the dust/dirt off of him a lot better than just letting the water do it... Maybe try that??

I have pinto who gets disgusting and the day before a show I give her a bath. Now I do the scrubbing method. First buy one of those plastic horse bathing scrubby things. They i find work the best. Now when you bath your horse and are just getting them wet srub them and get some of the dirt off. next lay on the soap. I just run a line of soap from poll to point of buttocks and scrub it in. Next i have rinse it out and srub some more and finally i srub while rinsing. I do this on both sides and legs and my mare is always clean. I always showsheen her then wait for her to dry, blanket her, and finally put her in an enclosed lean-to for the night. hope this helps. This method has never failed me!
