    Coat Defense® Daily Preventative Powder is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 29.
    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.

    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.

    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!

    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.

    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.

    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!

    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.

    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
    Date published: 2020-01-24
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from How did I not know this existed??? Absolutely fantastic product! I’m using this to help dry a horse around the girth after a winter ride. He prefers a leather girth but unfortunately that promotes sweating in the area but this helps dry him in no time!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Ease of use I bought this to treat rain rot on a 16 month colt, being the middle of winter I didn’t want a liquid or cream, it seems to be working and it perfect for the weather.
    Date published: 2020-01-04
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really Works I became a believer when I used their Trouble Spot Paste on a nasty case of scratches, so I thought I'd give the Powder a try. I don't clip my horses in the winter and drying them after exercise is a pain. This stuff really helps! I sprinkle it on his back and rub it it with a curry. For girth area I powder the curry and it really speeds up the drying time and any excess just brushes out. I'm looking forward to seeing if this helps prevent our annual scratches outbreak in the spring!
    Date published: 2019-12-18
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Preventative care I bought this to ward off scratches in the spring. My one horse had them awful this fall. I tried it in some rain rot a week of so ago, works just like the video. The hair-scabs just fluffed off, incredible.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from AMAZING! I bought this directly from the company online before it was available on SmartPak, and I am SO HAPPY this product is now available here! Not only does this help my guy dry off quicker after a workout, but it helps to keep him smelling amazing and soft all winter with only a small amount of product. I love it!!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from WORKS LIKE A CHARM TO DRY OFF WET WINTER HORSES I bought this from a local feed & supply store (not SmartPak, which I think wasn't carrying it yet) since one of our school horses has a very thick, very long coat (even WITH regular clipping) and is a big sweater. Evening riding lessons with him were challenging, as it was already quite late and both he and I were eager to get to our dinners post-ride. This stuff is amazing: I shake a decent amount into my hands, then vigorously rub into the coat, focusing on wet spots like the saddle/girth area, chest/neck, and flanks. BONUS: it has peppermint in it, so your horse smells delicious (though they definitely are convinced you might HAVE a peppermint while you're applying it). It is a big upgrade from the cowboy trick of rubbing dust in to help dry off your horse, and it works much better than old fashioned baby powder (which I don't use anymore at all given the cancer issues with people). The only downsides are that it is a bit messy to apply (I'm working on a powder puff of sorts to apply with a little less waste) and you will go through it relatively fast, so I'd go ahead and get the big container. Worth every penny!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Life Saver!!! I LOVE this stuff! I curry it in after cold weather workouts to help dry sweat marks, use it under blankets to keep everyone clean and smelling fresh, and if anyone gets a little gunky (rain rot or scratches) this stuff is great for that too! It even helps my dogs itchy allergy paws!! I can’t be without it!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from works great! This powder quickly cleared up some issues where my horse sweats or has been bit by an insect.
