Paying attention to details
Little details such as giving special care to your horse’s special markings and features can help turn any equine into a champion.

White Markings
Enhance your horse’s white markings:

 Use shampoos specially designed for white horses. They contain optical enhancers for maximizing the brilliance of white coats and markings.

Put a few drops of bluing in the rinse water, and white markings will “pop.”

Clip white socks.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Coat
Are you planning to show your horse? Be aware that coat polish is typically used when showing.  It repels dust and stains and controls static electricity, so it’s helpful if you’re not showing your horse, too. One spritz on a slightly damp rag and a quick rub down on your horse is all it takes. In fact, regular use can actually help speed up the grooming process.

Face
Trimming shaggy hair from under the jaw line and the whiskers from around the muzzle adds definition and a look of refinement to your horse throughout the year. Your horse has hair inside his ears and above his eyes (feelers), and during show season, you may opt to trim them. However, the hair in these areas serves a purpose and should only be trimmed when necessary. Rubbing a damp cloth over the face each time you groom will help to keep your horse looking his best.
