I recently invested in some quality grooming product to condition my horse’s coat (HSE Hot Oil). He already has a lovely coat from good feed, but I wanted something extra to protect him from rubs, dryness and nicks. I can use it as a rinse, diluted in water, which is great for after baths, and I’ve also mixed some with water and put it in a spray bottle as a daily grooming spray.
My question is, when in the grooming process do you use a spray like this? At first I was using it before riding, but then I thought it might get sweated off so now I use it last thing. And should I spray it on and curry comb it in, or finish brushing and then spray as a last step? Plus I’m having trouble getting even coverage, should I spray it directly onto his coat, onto my body brush, onto a rag??
I am probably over thinking this but it was pretty $$ and I want to make sure I’m using it in the most effective way!
