Reviews
Coat Defense® Daily Preventative Powder is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 49.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Prevents and Cures I have used the paste to clear up and then prevent scratches on heels (best thing to work ever) and thought I'd get the powder to help as a rain rot preventative to use under my horses sheet / blanket. Not only has this worked, it has helped clean (i.e. dry shampoo) him a bit and also helped dry up his heels and pasterns after some muddy and wet days without drying his skin. I recommend using this as a preventative under blankets/ sheets and leg wraps; clearing up scratches or rain rot is never fun, especially in the winter.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not helping yet Been using for a couple of weeks and unfortunately hasn’t helped yet. Horse has an itchy tail..
Date published: 2021-08-25
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Helped my horse with those itchy bug bites A friend at the barn suggested this for my horse's many little bug bites on his stomach. His belly was so itchy. I bought this powder and put it on for a few days and the bug bites slowly began to go away and he was more comfortable. I just put it on every day now. I also began to use it on his hind legs that get a little sticky and it has helped dry them up. He had two bug bites on his cheek one day and I put it on both of them and the next day they were drying up. It has been such a wet and hot Summer with lots of rain and in the heat ,more bathing, this has really helped his skin.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It works! My pony is very itchy and rubs his tail, especially when it's hot. He was vetted and given meds, but nothing worked. I decided to try this product, and I have to say that it works. He still rubs from time to time, but nothing like before.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Has become our FAVE stuff! This powder has become a staple in our barn. Helps dry a sweaty horse - can put under saddle pad before a ride on a hot day. Fabulous at dealing with rain rot - fast! Have also used on my dog to help heal a reaction he had to some metal on a collar. Definitely worth it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Must-Have for the Grooming Kit Love this product along with the Paste for more acute issues. The Powder is always in my grooming bucket, and can be used for so many things. My mare gets sweet itch during the summer and I apply this product into the base of her mane to help prevent itching and rubbing. I've also used this on cannon crud and general skin scurf. And my other favorite use is on sweat marks - it works like a dry shampoo and helps them to dry quickly even in cooler weather. This product is easy to apply - it comes in a baby-powder type of bottle with a shaker top. A little goes a long way which makes this a great value as well. One thing to note is that it will bleach out dark coats if used regularly, so if your horse is dark like mine you should keep that in mind before use. For me the efficacy is worth the minor inconvenience. I highly recommend this for any horse owner, as it has so many uses that it should be a staple in every grooming kit!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for helping to prevent scratches My mare developed scratches this spring and I started using this on the advice of a friend to help prevent scratches from developing on the other legs. So far it’s been working.
Date published: 2021-05-22
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great powder I am obsessed with this powder and recommend it to everyone. It's great to use on sweat marks, legs (fungus scratches, wet legs), itchy tails, helmets, etc. The only downside is that I ordered the refillable container (great idea!) and when it arrived the seal was broken. I think some of the powder had spilled out as well, which was a bummer as I hate to waste an ounce of it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Product for Summer Heat I bought this about a month ago for sweaty rides. When it isn't warm enough for a bath but warm enough to sweat, I put this on my mare after removing her tack. The product absorbs sweat beautifully. The only reason I did not give it 5 stars is that it is hard to control how it dispenses. So, some places on my bay looked "dusty" after using the powder, while others looked just fine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product. This product is easy to apply and works fast on removing the rain rot.
Date published: 2020-11-25
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing for sensitive skin mare This product does exactly what it claims. I ride in the evenings in Florida and then my girl gets turnout. I use this on her sweat instead of rinsing her down and then rolling in the dirt to make mud. I love it.
Date published: 2020-11-14
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for mud fever/scratches and canon crud I started using this stuff after clearing up some scratches on the back of my horses heels using the coat defense paste. Once it was cleared up, I started using this powder about every other day when I’d visit my horse as a preventative. It seems to help keep heels dry even when in contact with wet grass of mud, as my horses heals are noticeably cleaner and drier than the rest of her legs! I have also applied it to some canon crud and it cleared it up slowly. Overall, if you grab the big size, it’s such a good bang for your buck as it lasts a while, and prevention can’t hurt when it comes to horses! Smells kinda nice too and is easy to rub in!
Date published: 2020-11-04
Rated 5 out of 5 by from perfect for rain rot prevention This is the easiest and most effective prevention I've found for rain rot especially in winter months with thicker hair to get through. Easy to use and smells great!
Date published: 2020-10-23
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Didn’t work Used for 12 months, went through 3 bottles. Tried using to help an itchy tail, he was more itchy when using the powder. Used to help with sweat but any powder would have worked the same. My Horses really disliked the smell. After using it and cleaning off my hands my horse wouldn’t take the treat out of my hand as he could still smell the product (he is not a picky guy so this actually told me a lot)
Date published: 2020-09-06
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Use it every day! Love this stuff. Helps prevent skin funk, absorbs sweat, brushes off and leaves coat shiny, smells nice, bugs hate it, no chemicals, and my favorite product.
Date published: 2020-08-11
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this stuff! This is my third purchase of the powder. My horse gets sweet itch every summer and it really helps. He has had to wear a fly mask 24 - 7 because of an ulcer on his eye. It really helps with sweating under the mask.
Date published: 2020-07-31
Rated 5 out of 5 by from works great! i sprinkle this in my horses boots everyday and it helps keep the fungus away! it also helps get rid of fungus!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Coat Defense I have been using Coat Defense for at least a year and use it all year long. Winter to reduce blanket rubs and summer to deal with skin issues.
Date published: 2020-07-15
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Only Product That Worked My young jumper has super sensitive skin and after purchasing five different pairs of expensive boots for turnout because he was getting really bad rubs and hot spots, the only thing that stopped it was Coat Defense every day on his legs before the fluffy boots went on. I'll never go another summer without it.
Date published: 2020-07-06
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Reduced skin irritation I have only been using this product for a short time. I have been using it on my horses tail because he rubs it especially in the summer. BUT my dog has a bacterial infection involving his skin and I have used this on him with reduced scratching.
Date published: 2020-06-10
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Product This is my second time buying this product. It is a great preventative for rain rot. Usually my horse gets rain rot on his back legs and rear end. But this year and last he has had none while other horses at the barn have.
Date published: 2020-06-02
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Your grooming arsenal needs this. I’ve been using this for a couple of years now, and I love it! I put mine in a squeeze bottle for easier application. I put it on my mare’s hooves to stave off thrush, I put it on her creases on hot days to keep the drandruff-y skin at bay, I put it anywhere her halter touches in the summer, I put it in my bra in the summer, I put it in her boots. We had a gelding that had trouble with cannon crud, and I covered him in it. In short, there’s nothing that I don’t use this for. They also make a mud cream for scratches (and poison ivy on people), and a similar powder for dogs. You need all of it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really Helps It really helps cut down time to dry my horse in the winter. I just brush some on after using my cooler for a bit and it finishes the job perfectly!
Date published: 2020-02-19
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for scratches I bought this for clearing up leg scurf and scratches. Easy to apply and smells great. Cleared up scratches fairly quickly.
Date published: 2020-02-13
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dry shampoo for horses! My horse has a thick winter coat, and this powder has been very helpful in drying out the sweaty spots. The powder has a pleasant scent and it does the trick!
Date published: 2020-02-13
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Simple to make at home. I got this so that I could get extra help in drying my horse's coat before putting a blanket back on her. (You sprinkle it on, rub it in, and brush it out). Make no mistake. This stuff works great. I read the ingredients and it is a basically baking soda, cornstarch, and mint extract (for the pleasant smell). They claim to prevent bacterial skin issues. Here is the thing. Bacteria loves moisture. Any time you remove moisture, you prevent bacteria. You can buy it if you like, but after this bottle runs out, I will just make it.
Date published: 2020-02-13
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Product My horse has a very heavy winter coat, and although clipped under his neck and chest, he gets soaked during a lesson. Coat Defense Powder really helps dry the sweat. I wipe him down with a microfiber towel, and then go over him a second time using the Coat Defense. Love it!
Date published: 2020-02-05
Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Must Have in Your Barn Amazing! I have a gelding that lived outside during the wet season and now has some nasty rain rot on his back/hind end. Used this powder for the first time and could feel some of the scabs coming off in my hands. After just two uses, it has cleared up almost completly.
Date published: 2020-01-30
Rated 1 out of 5 by from It Works! I bought some for my daughter—her pony takes hours to dry even with superwicking cooler. She tried it and was amaze how quickly he dried off. Then I bought some for myself for when my mare’s legs and belly are wet coming in from the pasture. It’s really great stuff. My daughter calls it a game changer for her
