Each horse is truly one-of-a-kind and will have unique grooming and wellness needs. When people are first starting out with Equi-Spa products, they often ask me what they should buy. I usually have a wonderful conversation about their needs and what their horses are like. Once I get to know them a little better, I’ll make recommendations from there.
I’m always happy to help you find the perfect product for your horse, but I thought I’d make a list of products that I recommend keeping in every stable to help you start your journey.
Not So Sweet Itch Body Wash: Prevention is better than cure. It’s much better for your horse’s happiness, as well as more cost effective, to try to avoid skin irritation developing in the first place. Not So Sweet Itch Body Wash is an all-purpose cleaner that can replace your current grooming shampoo. It cleans your horse’s coat and body, offers a convenient low-suds and easy-rise formula, and, when used regularly, protects the skin’s natural oils, helping to prevent or reduce conditions caused by dry or irritated skin.
Peppermint Summer Protection: Another familiar saying is the cure is worse than the disease, and this is something I’m especially conscious of. Spraying your horse and stables with chemical insecticides will of course rid them of pests, but at what cost to your horse’s health and the environment? Peppermint Summer Protection harnesses the natural barriers plants such as mint and citrus use to deter insects from eating their leaves, to safely and effectively ward off pests. It’s all natural ingredients mean its safe for you to handle (no need to wear protective gear when spraying things down) and can be used around all your animals including breading mares. Also don’t be fooled by the name, it is safe to use all year round if needed.
Fairy Tails Spray: There’s nothing more beautiful than when the sunlight bounces off a silky horse mane. Fairy Tails Spray gives you that dream mane and tail. Simply brush it through and the rich moisturizing formula easily releases any knots or tangles. It also helps with mane and tail repair, restoring your horse’s natural sheen. If you or your horse don’t like spays, then Fairy Tails Lotion offers the same amazing results.
Kiss A Frog Foot Wash: One of the hardest areas to clean, but also the most necessary, is under the hoof, around the frog. This area is really prone to picking up nasty bacteria and fungus that can endanger the health of your horse. Our Foot Wash works wonders on this difficult area and keep your horse’s hooves clean and healthy.
Grapefruit Coat Refresh: If you’re anything like me, you’d love to spend all day grooming your horses. Sadly, life doesn’t always let us do what we most love. Luckily, with the right horse care products like Grapefruit Coat Refresh, you can still keep your horse shiny and clean, when you don’t have time to offer the full grooming ritual.
There you have it, the top five products I’d recommend for every stable. Let me know if you’d like to learn more about any of these products or are curious if they are the right fit for your horse.
