Some added benefits of COAT DEFENSE® daily PREVENTATIVE POWDER?

  • Prevent and Eliminates fungus and bacteria

  • Prevent blanket, saddle and boots rubs

  • Removes saddle marks

  • Keep pasterns dry and scab free by applying before turnout

  • Keep blankets, sheets, coolers and natural coats bacteria free and smelling fresh

Whether blanketing, riding, using a cooler or letting your horse go naked this winter, our COAT DEFENSE daily PREVENTATIVE POWDER is A DRY SHAMPOO that wicks moisture while cleaning the coat and killing the bacteria that create funk. The bonus? It leaves the coat’s natural oils that a harsh sodium laureth sulfate based wet shampoo can strip.

Why a dry shampoo for sweaty horses? When sulfates wash away all the natural oils, a horse can be left with dry, itchy skin and a coat that is dull due to lack of moisture. It’s important to keep natural oils in the coat and on the skin, which is exactly why we don’t include any harsh ingredients!  

Ashley shows us how she uses COAT DEFENSE® on the ringside after a run to keep her horse dry, warm and comfortable!

How does it work? Our simple, natural ingredients create an environment on your horses coat that sucks up moisture, and leaves a fresh, clean smell. Simply sprinkle it on, rub it in with a curry or brush, and let it dry. Any extra can be brushed off, removing gunk and dirt with it. Now you can keep your horse WARM, DRY, AND FREE OF FUNK THIS WINTER!
