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!  

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!

FREE shipping on orders over $50!

While we’re on the road and it’s cold, too cold to bathe, COAT DEFENSE® keeps these horses looking like a million bucks!

— Jim McDonough Cutting Horses

If you want to keep your horse comfortable this winter, consider adding COAT DEFENSE® daily PREVENTATIVE POWDER to your grooming routine. Keep the bacteria and fungus away with this dry shampoo, all while wicking moisture from the coat and keeping them dry and happy. But don’t let us tell you about it, here’s a word from some of the riders who have enjoyed the success of adding COAT DEFENSE® daily PREVENTATIVE POWDER to their grooming routine!

How to Wash a Horse in Winter

 Winter. Come for the beauty, stay for the... no, don't stay. Take your horse and head south!

Caring for Horses in the Winter

Winter. Come for the beauty, stay for the… no, don’t stay. Take your horse and head south!

Bitter cold winds. Endlessly falling snow. Frozen water buckets or faucets. Icy walkways and skating rinks for pastures. Oh, the endless joys of horse ownership in the winter.

And while non-horse owners complain about the cold and snow, not many of them LIVE it quite like horse owners do. Because unless you’re in a heated barn, the equestrian lifestyle can take a pretty brutal toll for many from November to March.

One of the many problems of cold weather is keeping your horse even somewhat clean. Sure, the fluffy white snow doesn’t get him dirty, but the random thaw of 45 degrees has him rolling in a mud pit.

Can I Bathe a Horse in the Winter?

Washing a horse in cold weather with a hose and soap is a big no-no. Because a chilled horse can become very ill in a short amount of time. But it’s not just battling the mud and rain. If you keep a blanket on your horse all winter, it quickly becomes grimy with dirt sweat, and manure. So the winter months tend to be dirty, miserable and cold for the lot of us.

 Does this count as a bath? Does this count as a bath?

Can I Bathe a Horse in Winter with a Spray Shampoo?

Don’t get me wrong, I’ve used plenty of waterless sprays to clean my horse in the winter. But they always came with a few issues. Because, one… they aren’t waterless. So, while I understand you don’t have to ADD water, the base IS still water. And my horse ends up with damp blotches that I have to rub dry without gloves and frozen fingers. Now he’s annoyed that I’ve taken his warm blanket off, and proceeded to get him wet. Something else he despises. And two, they still leave a gunk and grim behind.

Can I Bathe a Horse in Winter with a Dry Shampoo?

If you’re like me and can’t afford to move somewhere warm, you’re stuck in the cold. And you have to deal with itchy, dirty horse that spray shampoos just can’t seem to clean. But luckily, I was fortunate enough to stumble on COAT DEFENSE® daily PREVENTATIVE POWDER. And it was a game changer for my winter grooming routine. Because this magical fairy dust has made winter MUCH more tolerable for me and my Arabian gelding, Billiam.

And like most thin-skinned breeds, Billiam loathes the cold. Every evening I can make a million dollar bet that he will impatiently be pawing at the gate to come in. Ears back and eyes glaring at me as if to say, “I belong in a desert, why the heck am I in the snow belt of northeast Ohio?”


I was pleasantly surprised how all these concerns disappeared when I switched to COAT DEFENSE® daily PREVENTATIVE POWDER.  Because it also provides a whole lot of comfort to my horse. You might not be able to wash a horse in winter, but you can brush them with a dry shampoo. And that’s all this product entails.

See for yourself how you can apply it on a sweaty, damp horse. And then rub it in to have dry, great smelling steed 10 minutes later…

The results? Have a look!

So a good winter grooming tip for horse owners? Grab some COAT DEFENSE® daily PREVENTATIVE POWDER and enjoy peace of mind. It’s easy to apply. It actually works to keep horses clean. And it stops itching, rubbing and bacteria buildup. Plus, it smells delightful. Cold weather’s tough enough. But don’t let a dirty, smelly horse be another thing on that list of things we hate about winter!
