Whitening Products for Horses
What are Horse Whitening Products?
Horse whitening products are products specifically designed to keep your horse white! Smart Grooming whitening products are perfect for getting yellow stains out of tails and grass stains out of white socks. We have developed a range to suit all types of white horses and to banish stable stains forever.
How to Whiten Yellow Horse Tails:
Damp the tail, apply a generous amount of Polar White directly onto the stained areas. Massage in well so that it becomes foamy. Rinse with very warm water and then apply Deep Purple Shampoo. Rub the shampoo in thoroughly and work into a lather. Rinse off with very warm water. Apply Polar White again and work in well, rinse off. Shake out or spin the tail to remove excess water.
To get a bright white, silvery finish, dip the tail in a diluted solution of Super Blue. Keep the tail completely immersed for a couple of minutes before removing and rinsing off in warm water.
For the final finish apply Super Shine and work in well before brushing out carefully. By applying this lotion afterwards this will help prevent additional staining by creating a barrier between the dirt or urine and the tail hair.
Removing Stable Stains from a Grey Horse
Damp the stained area with warm water, then apply the Polar White directly to the dirty area. Massage with the Super Groomer to start to move the dirt. Leave for a few minutes to continue to work its magic before rinsing off.
Apply Deep Purple Shampoo to the stain if there is any discolouration remaining, massage the shampoo in with the Super Groomer and rinse off.
How to Wash a White Horse
Apply warm water all over with a shower or sponge. Apply Deep Purple Shampoo all along the length of the horse and then massage the shampoo in well with the Super groomer, adding water as needed to give a good lather before rinsing off.
How to Whiten a Horse's Legs
To get socks and upper areas of legs super white, damp the legs first and then massage in Deep Purple Shampoo and rinse. For any stubborn grass or other stains, apply Polar white to those areas, massage in and rinse off. This will give you your white legs but for super white, then apply Leg and Body Whitening powder. This chalk based powder can be applied directly to wet legs with a dedicated brush or sponge, or can be made into a water based paste and then applied with a paint brush. Either way works well, but avoid putting it on too thickly, unless you have plenty of time to leave it to fully dry!
Once dry, brush off with a clean stiff brush. Be sure to bandage or cover the legs if travelling to event to keep them clean and dry.
