Products You Can Surprisingly Share with Your Horse

Posted by Allie Layos

You probably never guessed that you can share these versatile products with your horse.

If your horse is family, what's his is yours and what's yours is his ... right? You may think that sharing your things would be a little complicated since one of you is, you know, a horse, but it doesn't have to be.

Here are four incredibly useful products -- some marketed to humans and some to horses -- that can benefit you both. Some of them may surprise you.

Mane 'n Tail

 Mane 'N Tail

Though Mane 'n Tail began as a horse product, it took off quickly in the human market when equestrians began using the shampoo on their own hair as well as theirs horses'.

It can now be found at grocery stores, pharmacies, and many other places that sell shampoo.

Corn Starch

Corn starch is more than an obvious kitchen staple. If you're going to a horse show or just want your horse to look particularly fancy, try rubbing a bit of corn starch on his white leg markings.

It gives them a crisp white color that you just can't match with washing and grooming alone.


orvus shampoo

Originally marketed for the cleaning of rugs, upholstery and delicate fabrics, this powerful detergent also makes an incredible horse shampoo.

Just a quarter-sized amount can often wash a horse's entire body, and leaves the coat quite literally squeaky clean.



More than just a fun snack for humans, gelatin can also be used to improve hair growth in horses and strengthen their hooves.

In fact, most owners see a change in their horse's hooves just 30 days after gelatin is added to their feed.

Ignore the packaging -- products this great are meant to be shared, especially with the horses you love so much.
