Fantastic product Not only did this cure my mares itchy tail, it left her tail beautifully soft and shiny. Can I use it in my hair? 😀 (28/06/2019) Hilary - Frome
Excellent product I love this! It is very convenient being in a bar rather than a bottle. My horse gets a very itchy tail and it drives him mad but he seems to be so much better after using this product. Another real bonus is how clean he looks after washing him with this soap -he has been transformed from the dirtiest grey on the planet to one of the smartest with a lovely clean tail - at least until he goes out and rolls again!!!!

Why is this shampoo in a bar as opposed to a liquid?
When developing this shampoo, after testing multiple formulations, the bar format was by far the winner for being high foaming (even in hard water areas), easy to use and long lasting, which makes it very economical and effective. In addition, it is also kinder to the environment by using less packaging. The bar format also ensures that the shampoo is easily distributed across the whole coat without having concentrated areas of liquid shampoo, which as well as saving money, makes it easier to rinse out. Please note- each shampoo bar is handmade, so do not worry if it is not perfectly uniform, each bar has been carefully weighed.
Which horses will benefit from this shampoo?
Any horse who suffers from itchy, irritated or sore skin, or who are sensitive to harsh shampoos will benefit from this shampoo. Or anyone who simply wants to use a more natural shampoo without harsh chemical detergents and preservatives.
How gentle is this shampoo?
It is very gentle and mild, and conditions the skin and coat. Great care has been taken to source the gentlest surfactants whilst maintaining the highest performance and foaming properties. The ingredients are all naturally derived and the shampoo is both soap free and SLS, SLES free.
How should I use it to get the best results?
For best results, use it once or twice a week. Ensure that you leave the shampoo on the coat for at least 5 minutes to ensure the ingredients get to work.
If your horse has a difficult skin problem, to get the best results, we recommend that you use the shampoo in conjunction with the other Equinat itchy horse products.
Allow the Itchy horse shampoo bar to dry completely between uses by storing in a dry environment.
Are there any precautions using this shampoo?
As with all shampoos, try to avoid getting any in your horse’s eyes. In the event of accidental contact, rinse with plenty of water. Whilst this shampoo is hypoallergenic, even with natural products, horses can very occasionally be sensitive to natural ingredients.
