  • So many equestrians vow to never buy a grey because they can be a nightmare to keep clean – but with the help of the best whitening shampoos for horses it’s possible to remove stains and yellowing. All-purpose horse shampoos are great for deep cleans, but when you have a grey a whitening shampoo is likely to bring out the best in your horse’s coat. The best whitening shampoos aren’t just for grey horses either, they can work wonders on white markings, too. If you don’t have time or it’s too cold to bath your horse, you can also use water-free stain removers, which work in a similar way to dry shampoo for humans.

    When choosing the best whitening horse shampoo for your horse, it’s worth noting the size of the bottle (or bar) and how many washes it delivers – we’ve asked for the number of washes when used as recommended. This will also give you a guide as to how much to use but will, of course, depend on the size and type of your horse – most good shampoos don’t require you to use too much at a time, and following the guidance will save you money and prevent wastage.
