Simple Do’s and Don’ts of Equine Bathing

Gather your supplies, roll up your sleeves, and suds up that horse! We have some simple tips for bathing your horse - and what to avoid.

This article is part of our Guide to Grooming Awareness Campaign, brought to you by ShowSheen.

We’ll dive deeper into this topic at a later date, but here are a few do’s and don’ts of bathing your horse.

When the suds are flying and your horse is thoroughly soaked, you’ll thank yourself for having all your supplies gathered close. Don’t break his mane with rough brushing when it’s wet. Know your horse’s skin needs to choose quality products. Use a detangler on his mane and tail when brushing it out, and start slow when introducing him to water!
