Three Ways to Naturally Achieve a Shiny Coat By Emily Konkel: Many horse owners find it challenging to achieve a perfect, shiny coat for their horse. Unfortunately, this is a task that is not accomplished over night. There are many different supplements that can improve coat conditions but they can also become expensive. Here are three tips to NATURALLY get your horse the shiny coat you’ve always wanted. 1. The very most important tip to achieving a shiny coat is good nutrition. You horse needs to have a healthy and well balanced diet for more reasons than just a shiny coat but that is just a bonus. Make sure you are feeding your horse good quality hay to improve on their coat then use grain/pelleted feed to fill. 2. Grooming your horse daily can also make a huge difference in their coat. Use a rubber curry comb on your horse in a small circular motion. This will help to remove dirt and loose hair. The brushing will also stimulate the natural oils in your horse’s skin to produce shine. 3. Another way to add shine to your horse’s coat is the use of corn oil. Corn oil can be added to your horse’s feed. It has been known to help dull coats. Just add a cup of corn oil to your horse’s feed daily. As you can see, none of these tips can get your horse the shiny coat that you’ve been dreaming of over night but with a little elbow grease and these helpful tips, you will start to see results in no time! Happy grooming! Please check out out post on show day grooming tips.
