We're bringing you this product at the lowest price allowed by the manufacturer so you won't find it cheaper anywhere else. This also means we can't apply any further discounts or promotions.

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'!).

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from soft and fragrant horse Canter spray feels so silky when you're combing it through tail and mane hairs with your fingers and the lemon scent is very pleasant too.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Grooming Must Have! I have been using this conditioner for a couple of years now and I STILL love it just as much as the first day I tried it!  Untangles tails really well (on 'rough' days I let it sit for a few minutes before brushing, really helps!) and doesn't leave the hair greasy.  I've also been known to give my own hair a quick spritz and brush...Great product.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Favorite Tail Detangler My all time favorite tail detangler.  Works extremely well, doesn't leave a residue on your hands like others will.  Great for horse shows when I'm brushing my horses tail every day.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than ShowSheen! I have been using Canter Mane and Tail for about 6 months now and I can say that it definitely has worked much better than other similar products. It leaves my horse's hair very soft and shiny. Smells great too!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product I've tried a lot of products to untangle my mare's tail (it hangs to the ground). This one works like magic. Not oily at all. Even days later her bedding brushes out easily.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love This Smells great and keeps my horse's tail tangle free without that residue you get with 'sheen' type products. I don't have to spend time picking shavings out of his tail now too. I bought this after I read all of the other glowing reviews and can say that they were not wrong! I'm really glad I tried this.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from THE BEST this product works beautifully on very hairy friesians ,while not allowing tangles to remain-it also lasts for days-perfect spray for the job

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Drys Out Hair Rather disappointed in this product. My Peruvian Paso has a huge mane and tail. This product seems to dry it out. I have not used a lot of products on his mane and tail, as we have never had a problem. But he is getting dregs under his fly sheet. I was hoping this would moisturize the hair and keep it soft. The opposite occurred.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice conditioner Leaves tail silky and lasts for days. The sprayer is nice since it sprays with a fine mist. A bit pricey but works well.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product! I've been a fan of Canter Silk Conditioner for year. It does wonders for my mare's coarse mane and tail without leaving it greasy.
    Date published: 2013-05-14
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome product! I love this mane and tail conditioner! I have only used it for about two weeks but have seen an amazing difference in my mare's mane and tail. They are shiny, tangle free and stay remarkably clean despite her frequent rolling in the dirt. The product smells nice too. I will definitely be reordering.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good product Keeps our horses tails tangle free without the sticky mess.
    Date published: 2013-04-08
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This stuff works! My mare's tail gets SO GROSS!! I can hardly brush through it without breaking a comb. But using this product, it's like her hair is silk now. It's so much more manageable. I'm sharing it with all of my barn friends.
    Date published: 2013-03-27
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this tuff! This has got to be the greatest mane and tail product ever! I've used this for about a year now and never plan on trying anything else.
    Date published: 2013-03-21
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Tail Conditioner As opposed to other sprays that feel like they just make the tail shiny, this one really conditions - and it lasts for several days. His tail was dry before using this and now it is soft and tangle-free. A little expensive for the amount you get but it works better than anything else I've tried.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing results! I have a filly with a long and thick mane that can be hard to brush. I sprayed this product lightly over the top and underneath and I was really amazed how effortless and easily her mane brushed out. These products usually require a little more effort even when they do work pretty well. Her mane stayed soft for days after too!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome!! When I first bought my horse he had such a brittle mane that it would break anytime you touched it! But with this product and lots of shampoo and conditioner over the last couple of months, it has totally changed!! It is slowly gaining normal texture and its health back. Would totally recommend this product to anyone looking for a good mane and tail conditioning spray. This stuff also helps with braiding.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than the rest! I love this stuff. I found out about it while grooming in the UK, and never thought I'd find it in the US. Thank you SmartPak! My only disappointment is that they changed the scent. It used to smell like roses. Still the best mane and tail spray! Worth the money.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Great! I have tried many different Mane and Tail conditioners,and I think this is one of the best I have used.I spray this on,and then braid and bag their tails.When you take bag off to comb out ,their tails are really silky and tangle free.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This stuff is awesome GREAT product. I recently bought this for my Percheron/TB cross. He has a really coarse mane, and this stuff made it feel so soft and smooth in just a few sprays, and his mane hadn't even been recently washed. He also lives outside, so he gets quite tangled up, and this still cut through everything. I'll definitely buy more when this runs out; his mane and tail feel fabulous!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unbelieveable! This product was introduced to me two horses ago..I have shown for many years and tried eveything..I use this on the mane to keep it from rubbing out under sleezies and it is unbelievable. I make sure I spray it down the ridge of the neck(mane) and all through the mane and do it twice a week at least. I have not lost any mane on any horse since!It isn't sticky or waxy...great product and worth every penny!!!!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect mane and tail conditioner! Move over Show Sheen, this product is wonderful and leaves no greasy residue or buildup in my gelding's mane or tail, just soft silky hair that is tangle and stain free! Dirt brushes right out too. He even got a bad rub on his tail from the trailer, I sprayed some of this on it and the hairs brushed out nice and sleek again.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worked great Definitely works to detangle long, very tangly manes and tails. Definitely helps keep them snag and tangle-free between brushings. Smells great - fresh and not too flowery.
    Date published: 2012-10-19
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Really good! I've tried everything and this IS superior to other products. I found it works best if the hair is clean and dry; spray it in the tail and let it dry before seems to work better that way!
    Date published: 2012-09-18
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Silky mane and tail with no residue... Canter is an excellent conditioner. Both my horses have natural long manes and full tails and so require some management in order to keep them free of wind braids. This is the best product I have tried to maintain condition and control breakage. It does not leave a "plastic" residue either.
    Date published: 2012-08-24
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best detangler ever! I LOVE this stuff. Spritz it on the nastiest tail, give it a moment, and then you can comb or brush through anything with minimal if any, hairs being pulled.I use it a couple times a week. It seems to keep the tails manageable for a couple of days and I am able to keep my tails untangled and organized. Cannot recommend it enough!
    Date published: 2012-08-21
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works really well This conditioner works really well. I really only use it at shows because I don't brush my horses tail at home but it lessens the damage done at shows when I'm brushing her tail at least once a day.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product Love this! Keeps my horses tail tangle free. Her Mane & Tail even seem thicker.
