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.
