If body clipping is part of your grooming regimen then you are familiar with the dull, dry skin that follows for days afterwards. Schneiders has several innovative ways to avoid this problem and immediately give your horse a shiny and healthy sheen.
Immediately after body clipping, it is important to restore moisture. The most effective way to infuse moisture back into the stripped coat is to use a hot oil treatment. Dilute the hot oil treatment 1:5 with very warm water and apply liberally with a sponge to the entire body, mane and tail while avoiding the eye area. Throw a fitted cooler over your horse to retain heat, and let set for about an hour. The longer you leave it on the more effective the treatment will be.
After you have let the hot oil treatment set in, wash your horse thoroughly with a conditioning shampoo. Dilute 1:5 and apply liberally, working deep into the coat, mane and tail to remove any traces of the hot oil treatment. Rinse thoroughly.
The final step in restoring moisture and shine to your body clipped horse is to condition with a hair polish. After you have sweat scraped your horse, apply the polish with a sprayer, working it into the coat with your palm. Once you have applied to the entire body, stroke the coat flat and allow to dry naturally.

It’s the season for trail riding! Before you hit the trail, make sure to pack your Easy-Mount Step Stool. Sometimes dismounting is necessary, but the terrain does not always allow you to re-mount easily or safely. This stool is light and portable, with a 5′ nylon cord to pull it up with you after mounting. See what these customers had to say!
“I bought this product for my 61 year old mother. She loves to ride, but has a hard time mounting after a break out on the trail. She is delighted with the stool. The stool has become as essential as her saddle when it we get ready to trail ride.” – South Carolina
“Always worried about getting back up on the horse out on the trail without a mount block, this product alleviates that worry and the string allows you to pick it up after mounting and just strap it to the saddle.” – Alabama
“The foot pad is just large enough to feel secure and still small enough to easily carry on my saddle. The legs spread wide enough to give a good platform. The only situation I’ve noticed they don’t work well is in deep soft ground such as sand. Now, when I have to get off in a inconvenient place I’m confident I can remount without help.” – South Carolina
“I used this step stool for the first time today and I love it! I was able to get on and off of my horse several times throughout my ride without having to pick a “good spot” to get back on after taking a rest break. It’s lightweight, but sturdy and compact enough to fit in my horn bag. I think I have found a great Christmas present for all of my horse friends.” – Michigan
“This little step has given me such freedom! No more looking for a log, rock or incline in order to remount my tall gelding when trail riding. The size is perfect for giving me a sturdy “foot up” and the cord makes retrieval a snap. Only wish I’d found it earlier. Thanks!” – North Carolina

Would you like to take a cold shower? Spring is here, and if you have upcoming horse shows you’ll need to begin your grooming regimen with a good bath! The Insta Hot Equine Portable Washing Systemis your solution! Hear from some of the customers that have made this one of our #1 selling items…
“I am so glad I purchased this wash system for my horse. She loves the warm water and I didn’t feel bad about washing her in the cold weather. The unit was easy to hook up, no leaks or problems. I just hung it on the fence near the water faucet. Included nozzle makes it easy to control water.” – California
“I use the washer at home and have always had good hot water as needed. We have purchased 6 for our pony club to use at local shows so that all our exhibitors have warm water at the wash racks. It has always performed to perfection for us.” – Iowa
“I was able to schedule an early Spring show this year. I have a gray Arabian that must have a bath and hates cold water. This year it was possible. He loved his bath and was whiter than ever! Warm water really makes a difference. I bought the cart as well and I’m very pleased to have a place for everything.” –Wisconsin
“This product is wonderful! Our barn does not have hot water available to wash the horses. This system is a great way to give a warm bath. I looked at many different warm water systems. This one was the best. It is also easy on the wallet. Other systems cost twice as much, and could only store a certain amount of water. With this you get as much water as you want. The best part is that it is portable! It is also light weight which is a BIG plus!” – Colorado
“This is a terrific product and I wish that I had purchased it a long time ago. We have well water that is very cold even in summer so now I can give my horses a shower whenever I feel like it. I was suprised that the water pressure was strong enough to wash out buckets and a stock tank. I mounted it on the wall and it took 15 minutes to set the whole thing up.” –Montana
