Here are some great winter horse grooming tips our fans have submitted:

  • Invest in a blanket with a neck. This will help keep your horse warm – and his mane from becoming extra tangled.
  • Spray ShowSheen® Hair Polish or Santa Fe Coat™ Conditioner on your horse before putting on his blanket. Our fans swear this reduces static, and helps prevent blanket rubs.
  • Just before your horse comes in from the cold, put a few towels in the dryer. A rub-down with the hot towels is a nice treat for your horse when he comes into the barn, plus it will help remove dirt from his coat.
  • For quick-touch ups in between baths, a dry shampoo like Miracle Groom® will clean and condition without water.
