The BIG Test: Shampoos
Tried and Tested: Your Horse Magazine  Issue 324 - 16 July - 12 August 2009

The manufacturer says: Super Gold formula for all chestnuts, duns and light bays.

Our tester says:
This shampoo has a lovely thick consistency and produces a good lather, so I didn't need to use a lot of it. I also found it good on her mane and tail and it has a lovely fresh smell. It cleaned well leaving her coat soft and shiny.

I tried this shampoo on a light bay too and it left both horses with a nice tint to their natural colour. This is a great all-round shampoo and is great value for money as you don't need much to get a good result.

VERDICT: 8.5 out of 10


The manufacturer says:
A deepening and darkening shampoo to bring out the rich tone and colour of all dark horses.

Our tester says:
This shampoo left his coat shining and enhanced his colour but only slightly. It was easy to use and rinsed out easily, making bathing quick. It's a good consistency and you don't need much to get the results.

I liked using this shampoo but it didn't enhance his colour as well as some of the others I tested.

VERDICT: 8 out of 10

IV Horse Grey Horse Shampoo

The manufacturer says:
Contains chamomile for lightening, brightening and whitening without using harsh chemical brighteners.

Our tester says:
An easy-to-use shampoo with good instructions. This shampoo has a lovely smell, I even got comments from people on the yard after the shampoo was put away!

I didn't need a large amount of shampoo to get a good result, it was very good at getting rid of very green stable stains! I did use quite a lot of shampoo for particularly stubborn stains and it took a bit of rinsing out. It performed well for me and it is a good price too.

VERDICT: 7.5 out of 10.
