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'!).

Vetrolin Shine ready-to-use spray puts a brilliant shine on coats, manes and tails. Includes salon-quality silicone, Vitamin B5, conditioners, and PABA sunscreen. Vetrolin Shine protects coat from dust and weather. Makes manes and tails more manageable.

    Vetrolin Shine is rated 4.812 out of 5 by 133.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not good. I tried this product because it was so much cheaper than Canter Mane & Tail, but after a couple months I've decided to just spend the money on Canter and give this away. I don't care for the licorice scent, but I'd look past that if it worked well. Unfortunately, I found that it left my horse's hair feeling more and more brittle every time I used it and seemed like it was also darkening my horse's white mane and tail- I'm not sure if it was attracting dirt or actually making it darker, but it was starting to both look and feel bad. I can't imagine what would happen if I made it through the whole bottle. It seemed like a good deal at the time, but now I realize it was a complete waste of money!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brings out the shine I love using Vetrolin Shine after I've knocked the dirt off and before I curry my mare to really bring out the shine in her coat. I also love to spray it on when I am all done grooming. That way, the dirt just wipes right off the next time I am out to groom her. Great product and it smells good, too!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best shine ever I bought this product because the product I normally use was out of stock. It turns out I like Vetrolin Shine way better. Leaves manes and tails silky clean without attacting dust and dirt. Now I use it every day on my horses.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Value This is one of the best tail sprays I have used. It doesn't leave a sticky residue and it keeps the tail from getting tangled up. I will keep ordering it!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product! I have used Vetrolin Shine for years. Love the sunscreen and the detangling abilities of this spray. I mostly use it on mane and tail, but it also makes the coat nice especially in the dryer months.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVEEEEEEEEEEEEEE This spray is PERFECT for everyday grooming! I find it helps condition her tail and body and gives it a shiny, health smooth look! It also smells amazing!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Favorite Shine Spray! This is my favorite spray ever! I use it on my horse's tail every day. My horse is shiny and soft for days after I mist him after a bath. I just learned that it has sunscreen in it and that just makes me love it more! It's my favorite show shine too, as it gives a more natural-looking shine rather than a gummy plastic-y look. It really conditions too, rather than putting a shine on for just one day. Plus, it smells fantastic!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best For Everyday Use! I LOVE this product! I use it almost daily on my horse to keep her coat in top condition. One of the reasons that I chose Vetrolin Shine over similar products is because it contains sunscreen to help keep her coat from fading in the summer. I also use this product in the show ring because it produces a nice healthy looking shine without being greasy and attracting dirt. Great product for all of your grooming needs!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from cleaner and no sunburn My gelding didn't have the usual sunburnt look to his topside this summer. My mare is a dust bunny, but she is staying cleaner. Smells a bit strong tho.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Product! Great product! Leaves my horse's coat soft but does not leave a sticky or oily residue. Highly recommend.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Product for Manes/Tails ShowSheen is not the best product for manes/tails anymore. Step aside for Vetrolin Shine. Not only does it smell great, it keeps my horse's tail in show shape, all year. It works great at keeping the tangles and dirt away. My horses tail has never looked better with this product.
    Date published: 2012-09-25
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Product Available! Showsheen recently changed their formula. It is thick, horribly smelling and makes tails worse. I started shopping around for something better. This is light weight, smells wonderful and lasts a long time. It makes my horse soft and shiny. Its wonderful for keeping tails detangled and in show condition.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Another great Vetrolin product! I found a bottle of this in my trailer from several years ago that had never been used. I have been a Healthy Hair Care user for years, mostly spraying it on the coat after bathing, but I found that it attracts dust. I love the Vetrolin shampoo and conditioner, so I figured I'd give this product a try too. Wow, Vetrolin does not disappoint! After three or four years of sitting in my trailer and surviving the hot/cold weather cycles, it worked great! I bathed my mare the night before our show and sprayed her coat down with this hoping to make it easier to brush her off in the morning. To my delight, she was super shiny and soft and smelled great! I also loved that it kept the dried sweat crust from sticking to her coat so it was easy to brush her off throughout the day. I love Vetrolin!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nope notch Keeps my horse shinier then any other horse on property, and i am convinced it has helped with her mane and tail growth! Not to mention she smells wonderful when I am finished spraying her down :)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! Vetrolin shine has always been my go-to for mane and tail detangler and conditioner. I LOVE this stuff- it smells great and it works really well. I've never used it to shine my boys coat, as he doesn't need it, but I could see this being really nice for spraying on and toweling to help if you have a dusty "kid". As always, I'm super happy I can just add a bottle of this to my smartpak auto-ship order and not pay any additional shipping. It save me time running to the store for little things.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Favorite Detangler Vetrolin Shine is my favorite all-purpose detangler and shine. It puts a nice shine on the coat and it repels dust and dirt - meaning that even after they go roll, it's easier to brush the dirt off a coat with Vetrolin on it. It also does a great job on manes and tails, and doesn't dry them out excessively like some detanglers do.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product! I recently started using this product on a black mare whose coat was getting burnt and bleached by the sun in our 100+ degree weather. I've been using it for about 3 weeks on a daily basis and wow, her coat is SO soft and shiny!! I was just hoping to prevent further damage to her coat, but was pleasantly surprised when her coat bounced back and was better than before! She actually looks far less bleached since I started using it. It smells great, works for de-tangling tails, and really moisturizes the skin and coat. I will continue to keep Vetroline Shine as a grooming staple from now on!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great All-Around Product! Vetrolin Shine has to be the favorite bottle in the grooming tote! It works great as a detangler or leave-in conditioner. After I bathe my horses before a show, or before I clip legs-i get their legs nice and squeaky clean, then spray this all over their body(but not where the saddle goes!) and it leaves them clean, and slippery so dirt doesnt stick, and the clippers glide right through the hair! (A cheap equivalent to ShowSheen)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this product!! I use Vetrolin Shine on my Friesian sporthorse. It's one of the few shine products with sunscreen. Good stuff!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful shine This is so much better than ShowSheen! Leaves a glorious shine without being slick or waxy feeling! My boy's mane and tail are super soft after applying...I put it on before I brush them out and it works as a detangler, too!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Soft and Shiny After only one use of the Vetrolin Shine my horses coat was much softer and even after he rolled in the dirt a few times the dirt brushes off much easier leaving the same glossy shine

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My new favorite! For years all I've ever used for detangling and shine is Absorbine Show Sheen. After using some Vetrolin shampoo and liking it I decided to try the shine product as well. Manes and tails stay beautiful for days after use. Keeps dust away and leaves their coats soft and shiny. It has definitely become a staple in my grooming box.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Shine Spray I have tried all sorts of shine sprays, both for showing and for daily conditioning and none can compare to the Vetrolin spray. It leaves an amazing mirror shine and deeply conditions without making your horse slick or greasy. Sometimes I spray it over my horse's entire body, like after giving him a full bath, but usually I spray it concentrated at the base of his tail to keep the growing hair conditioned and to aid in growth. I always get compliments on how wonderful my horse's coat/hair looks, and I attribute some of this to the effects of the Vetrolin Shine!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from AWESOME! I love Vetrolin products. I like Vetrolin Shine because it makes my gray horse's coat glisten, and it has sunscreen.
    Date published: 2011-06-27
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great results I have been using this on a horse with a big thick tail that hadn't been brushed in the months before I bought her. I didn't think I'd ever get a brush or comb of any type through that tail until I tried the Vetrolin Shine. Works great and lasts through more than one brushing too.
    Date published: 2011-06-22
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than Showsheen I've used showsheen forever, until a friend turned me onto this product. I use it mostly for tail conditioning and it works great. It doesn't leave that silicon feel to the tail that showsheen can. Plus it smells great!
    Date published: 2011-06-16
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love Vetrolin Shine I have been using Vetrolin Shine for several years now and love it! I never dries out the hair as some other products do, nor does it attract dirt or leave the hair feeling greasy or overly slick. I would also recommend Vetrolin Shampoo and Conditioner!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product I have been using this product for over five years! I primarily use it for it's sunscreen! We have brutal sun here in Texas, and it's the only product I have found that really works, and keeps my horse's coat from fading.
