As riders and online shoppers, we know it can be tough to buy a new bridle or pair of boots without trying them on. That's why we moved the fitting room to your living room (or barn)! From breeches to blankets, if you or your horse can try it on, you can return it, free! Just use the pre-paid return label included in your order within 60 days from the purchase date. And of course, please make sure the item is in like-new condition with original packaging (we said 'fitting room', not 'war room'!).

Why We Love This

Shapley's Original M-T-G plus is the same great formula as Original M-T-G but with a light herbal scent!  It is an easy to use, veterinarian recommended product providing quick and effective relief from a variety of bacterial and fungal skin problems such as rain rot, scratches, girth itch, sweet itch, dry skin and tail/mane rubbing. Original M-T-G Plus creates a healthy environment for the hair follicle, producing maximum growth while keeping the length of the hair shaft soft and pliable for minimum breakage.  In fact, users report up to 3 inches of new growth on manes and tails in a single month.  Horsemen worldwide know Original M-T-G plus as the single solution for both skin healing and hair growth.

Shapley's Original M-T-G Plus is rated 4.1944 out of 5 by 36.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from It works Avoided using this product due to the smell,however out of desperation, I began using it on my very allergic horse and have had remarkable success.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Just as bad smelling as the original I hate this stuff, but it does work. I've used the original for years, even though it's greasy, smelly, attracts dirt, and makes a terrible mess. This new "plus" is no better. It still smells like burnt wood. Yes, I know it's the sulfur, and the sulfur is the key ingredient to the reason this product works. I use it for rain rot. The kind where your horses hair comes out in big clumps. This greasy stuff stays on the horse and your hands and the blanket and anything else you touch. And it will help regrow your horses hair and get rid of rain rot.Bottom line: If you need to kill rain rot and regrow hair, this is the stuff that works. But as a "plus" with new improved scent, it's a fail. Buy the original and save a buck.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works great but smells awful! I have a mare with sweet itch and this clears it up in a matter of days (with daily applications). It does smell pretty bad and the smell will stay on your hands if you use it without wearing gloves. The "plus" herbal scent doesn't smell any better than the original. It's the only product I can find that works to clear up the mares skin & hair grows back pretty quickly. I'll keep using this despite the odor!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth The Purchase My sister swears by this product due to her horse always rubbing his hair out. It works wonders!
Date published: 2015-12-09
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great results. I bought this for 3 paint mares that had been neglected and their manes showed it. It really helped condition and there was some more growth as well.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I hate this stuff. It's super greasy, oily and smells awful. I haven't seen any dramatic differences when I use it so it's not worth it to me.
Date published: 2015-06-28
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent product Great product, not worth the extra money for the herbal scent, so I only gave it 4 stars. I have used this for hair re growth scabby/ scaley areas and aiding stronger/ healthier tail. Will never go without this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Must have at any Barn This stuff is great I have used it for years. It makes tails grow, works wonders on skin problems and makes hair grow back fast on scrapes. This is my first bottle of the Plus and the smell is much more pleasant.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from MTG Plus Absolutely LOVE this product. Many comment on the awful smell but bottom line is that the product actually works. MTG can be used for so many things so its a good product to have in you barn.
Date published: 2014-10-02
Rated 5 out of 5 by from So much easier to smell Did you ever think you would say MTG had a pleasant odor ?? This new MTG Plus is much easier on my sensitive nose!! Thank you-the product hasn't changed it is still the best!!
Date published: 2014-09-08
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product, better smell I have an Appy gelding. He started rubbing his tail, so between that and the short Appy tail I thought this might help promote better growth. I definitely noticed a difference. His tail has never looked so good. Another big plus, the smell isn't as strong as the Originial M-T-G. Every horse owner should have this in their tack room!
Date published: 2014-08-08
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Improved smell I have used the original MTG in the past and liked what it did to condition my mare's mane and tail, but hated the smell. Now with the new "Plus" version the scent is no longer offensive. I'm thrilled they've made this improvement, it's a great product.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Didn't do it I got this for my mare's chronic scratches and it did not help.
Date published: 2014-04-02
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Seeing results! My horse has a very sparse mane so a friend recommended MTG. I have only used it for 2 applications so far (you only need to apply 1x per week) but I am already seeing results! His mane appears thicker and longer! The oil in the product is a bit messy, but it really seems to penetrate the hair to prevent breakage and keep it silky & shiny. I'm impressed and will continue to use this product.
Date published: 2014-03-25
Rated 5 out of 5 by from It Really Works!! I've been using this product religiously for about 4 months and we have 3 inches of growth and some serious volume! Applied to the roots once a week and worked a little through the rest of her tail (also kept it braided 24/7). It still smells weird but for the results, it doesn't matter!
Date published: 2014-03-16
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great but still smells bad :) I bought the original mtg a few weeks before this stuff to put on my horse's tail. It really works, I actually noticed a difference in a week. I bought the "plus" hoping it would smell better but it doesn't. Mtg is worth the money but probably not worth the extra couple bucks for the plus.
Date published: 2014-03-03
Rated 3 out of 5 by from I was hopeful that the herb scent would make it smell a lot better than the Original MTG. It helps a little, but it still has that stinky MTG smell.
Date published: 2013-11-28
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product for removing fungus This was recommended to me by a trainer - my mare had gotten fungus on the bottoms of her legs (another trainer had been washing her too much in the hot weather) - and I tried a number of things - and this got rid of it quickly.  I applied it every day (washed off fungus, dried legs, applied) for three days - and the fungus just disappeared.  Smells a bit like hot sauce .... not offensive, just a bid strange to put on a horse's legs.  My girl didn't object at all (and, I put it on a cut on myself - no burning).  I'll keep a bottle handy always now.
Date published: 2013-11-25
Rated 5 out of 5 by from They Fixed the Smell! The original M-T-G is a great product, but that smell! My horse has chronic itchy skin, and scratches and rubs himself down down to bloody skin. There's no cure for it, but MTG is the ONLY product that quickly heals the wounds and grows the hair (and mane and tail) fast. While the MTG Ultra is still kind of a "messy" product, by using it my gelding can finally smell like a horse and not a smoked ham!
Date published: 2013-11-07
Rated 5 out of 5 by from best product improvement This product has always been very effective but not esthetically pleasing.The new product is great!
