Getting Your Horse Ready for Show Season

Getting Your Horse Ready for Show Season

Prepare to stand out from the crowd this summer by following the below helpful hints as you prepare for the show ring. We all like to be ready for action, whether it's in the show ring, on the centre line, or on a show jump course.

“My horse gets lots of stains on him, it doesn’t matter how much I bed him down!  It is really frustrating if we have to leave early for a competition too, is there anything to avoid endless scrubbing and getting him soaking wet that can help remove the stains?” 

Recommended product: NAF MUCK OFF

The name says it all, this is a quick and easy powerful stain remover. With ingredients that are designed to lift dirt and grease from all types of coats effortlessly, Muck Off offers a friendly approach to the many different skin types.  This product is immediately ready to use thanks to the mousse head, simply apply to a sponge and then straight onto your stain to wipe away.

“My fell pony has the thickest mane, is there an easy way to keep it conditioned so I don’t have to brush it daily and make it more manageable?”” 

Recommended product: NAF SILKY MANE & TAIL D-TANGLER

Best in Test and award-winning Silky provides all manes and tails with a shiny, tangle-free finish that can be brushed through with ease. Thanks to its formulation, Silky does not leave a greasy residue so it will not attract dust. 

“I really struggle with plaiting, my plaits never look smooth and neat, they have a “frizz” I find hard to control into plaits.  Water doesn’t work and the “frizz” gets worse!  Is there anything you can offer to help?”

Recommended product: NAF PLAIT IT UP

Keep the wisps and strays at bay and achieve a workable grip making it quick and easy to plait.  Plait it Up leaves your plaits looking professional and they will be long lasting. Comb the mane, section into the desired width for plaits, apply the mousse and comb down, then get ready to plait!

“I’ve been using non-equine shampoo to bath my horse, but it’s resulted in dry skin. Should I be using an equine specific shampoo?”

Recommended Product: NAF SHOW OFF

Firstly, a healthy horse should have a high alkaline pH to their skin (largely due to sweat/dirt etc.), so you should balance their pH with your shampoo. Fortunately, Show Off provides a well-balanced pH designed for equine hair, however as the human pH is usually a lower alkaline, human shampoos can result in leaving hair shafts dry and prone to breakage as well as stripping the natural oils. Show Off supports a clean and healthy hair shaft across all coat types as well as leaving the coat feeling refreshed, supporting the renewal of new hair follicles and providing a deep clean to bring out the colour in all coat types.
