Horses are one of nature’s most beautiful creatures. Until they get dirty—and they always get dirty. Fortunately, ShowSheen® offers you a complete horse grooming system that lets you gently clean, condition, and moisturize your horse’s mane, tail, and coat for a healthy, vibrant shine.
Here’s how to get the most out of our different ShowSheen horse grooming products:
ShowSheen® Detangler Gel makes life easier by helping untangle tough knots and removing clinging annoyances such as burrs and sand spurs from manes and tails when grooming a horse. Remember, always stand to the side—out of the danger zone, when grooming a horse’s tail.
- Start by removing any foreign objects, especially burrs, sand spurs, goat heads and other clinging “seed pods” your horse has picked up while turned out. These are often the culprits that cause a badly tangled mane or tail. Hold onto the burr or seed pod and squeeze a small dime-sized amount of ShowSheen Detangler Gel directly onto it. Next, pull hairs out of the seed pod a few at a time. This works better than trying to pull the seed pod out of the horse’s mane or tail all at once because it will usually break apart into smaller pieces.
- Apply a small dime-sized amount of ShowSheen Detangler Gel to the top of knots or tangles and work them free. If you are trying to grow the mane and tail as long as possible, using your fingers instead of a comb will reduce the amount of broken hairs.
- Work your way up from the bottom of the mane or tail.
- Once all foreign objects are removed and tangles are undone, apply some ShowSheen® Polish & Detangler Spray over the hair, then run a soft brush through the hair until it is smooth and flowing.
