“Will keep a clean horse shiny for days. Not slippery on saddle area”

– Horse Journal

Frequent and regular use creates a “Show Glow” and fluffy tangle free mane and tail. Does not attract dust. Spray on all over for a natural shine and moisturizing treatment. Spray into tail and mane, let set just a minute or two and brush with a large flat paddle type brush. ShowCoat has a natural cleaning ability from the witch Hazel and a natural moisturizing property from the coconut oil. The botanical essential oils are soothing and calming to the horse and have cell renewable properties that help the growth and regrowth of mane and tail. Shake Well before use.

Hint: Sprayed into tail before trail riding helps burrs slide out easier with out breaking hair. really good for “wind braids”.

ShowCoat Conditioning Treatment comes in a 32 ounce bottle

Equi-Spa ShowCoat Leave-In Conditioner

  • The maker of Equi-Spa, Sherie Vermeer has been an aroma therapist for the last 20 years, practicing on human clientele before focusing on the benefits of essential oils for horses. In 2002 West Nile was migrating from east to west, leaving in its wake many fatalities. Horses, humans and dogs alike were impacted by this disease. Listening to the advice of the media, she used DEET products on herself, her family and just about anything that didn’t run away. She experienced a very negative reaction to DEET, so she made her own blend of essential oils to protect her family from the effects of West Nile. Sherie was not comfortable using harsh chemicals on her horses, so she tried many of the “natural” insect repellents for horses. She found them to be ineffective. Sherie felt they were either not strong enough or the plant oils were not pure grade. She tried her “human” formula on her horses and noticed not only did it work for flies and mosquitoes, but their attitude was calmer, they were less sluggish, warmed up faster, and their coats were getting more and more healthy. She threw out all of my old grooming products and created all new products for use on my horses. They absolutely glowed! That is how Equi-Spa products were born.


    Aromatherapy is based on the beneficial properties of plants and flowers. Essential oils contain concentrated amounts of the beneficial compounds found in plants and are extracted though various methods. Aromatherapy is considered complimentary to traditional horse care methods. In the wild, horses can forage for plants to keep their systems in balance. Domesticated horses have limited access to a broad range of forage and depend on us to provide for most all of their needs. Aromatherapy is a means of enhancing the quality of care we provide. Horses respond dramatically well to essential oils, recognizing the most beneficial for their individual needs. Equi-Spa products address these special needs and was formulated to work harmoniously with the PH levels of the skin and coat, protecting the natural oils that keep them in a healthy balance.
