Show Sheen


One of my 'tried and true' 'go to' products.

It's been around forever, and is still, in my opinion, the best for what it does.


Show Sheen's purpose is to make the coat shiny, and to repel dirt and stains. It also makes the mane and tail easy to brush out. I spray it liberally in the tail, and then leave it in! The tail will brush out easily with the help of the Showsheen. ***Helpful Hint*** Showsheen makes the horse very slick and slippery. Be sure you don't spray it where the saddle goes! And be aware that it will make leg

protection less stable as well. Even if you don't spray the legs, the hind legs will get 'Showsheeny' anyway from the Show Sheen in your horse's tail!

For special occasions; competitions, presenting sale horses to prospective buyers, etc., I will use Show Sheen sparingly on the body (minus the back) and the legs.

You an even carefully brush it onto the face.

The Showsheen will not only add gloss and shine, but it also is great for repelling dirt.

A major plus!

***Helpful Hint***

It is not a good idea to use Showsheen on the coat every day because it will eventually clog the horse's skin pores.

I also use Show Sheen in my every day grooming routine

for the dock of the tail, brushing out the mane, etc.

You can learn much more about this process on the

"Helpful Hints to Having a Happy and Healthy Horse" blog page.
