Bright white greys and flashy white socks are not easy to achieve, so we are here to help with our selection of the best stain remover products

Greys and white markings look magnificent, but only when they are very white. In order to do this you might need an extra product help. For that you need a specialist shampoo that quickly and effectively removes deep seated grass and stable stains either at every time you bath your horse or for that last-minute show clean. When using these products, you should be mindful of your horse’s sensitive skin. Also if you’re wanting that instant show clean, a type of “dry shampoo” that can be brushed off is a great.
