Don’t Fade Away
There are no two ways around it:
Keeping your horse turned out in
the daytime during the summer
dries and fades the coat hair.
Going to a nighttime turnout
schedule or using a fly sheet
with UV protection during the
day will prevent this.
Excessive shampooing or
harsh detergents can strip
natural oils and dry the coat.
Use shampoo formulated for
horses, and be sure to rinse
well. Leftover soap in the
coat dries the skin and dulls
If you bathe frequently, use
an equine body wash. These are
gentle and designed for frequent
use. Finish with a conditioner to
strengthen and smooth the hair.
The smoother the hair’s cuticle,
the more shiny the horse will look.
A simple rinse with the hose
will do the trick if your horse
works up a sweat while exercising.
Thoroughly removing all the salt
from the coat is a very important
step to keep it from drying out,
fading and looking dull.
Are you ready to go for the
glow? Armed with these tips, you
can go forth and conquer the quest
for a shiny coat. HI
