    First impressions

    It smelt really nice and comes in an attractive, brightly coloured bottle.

    Overview of performance

    Despite being purple coloured, it wasn’t great at removing stable stains on grey horses. However, it does make chestnut and bay horses very sleek and shiny, without leaving a slippery residue, which is ideal for getting a horse prepped for a show. It didn’t foam up very much, but just enough. I could see where I put it on the horse, which prevented waste, and I didn’t need to use a lot of it as it is quite concentrated.

    Georgi’s likes and dislikes

    You could use it for a show prep on dark coloured horses as it does get them clean and shiny, but it’s not so great for removing stains on greys.

    It’s worth the money for a show prep and everyday shampoo. You can see that you have bathed your horse when you’ve used it, but I wouldn’t recommend it for removing stable stains.
