    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loyal customer! I have been using this product for years. It works well on my horses mane and tail before a show. It helps with keeping his tail clean, slick and tangle free. I ordered this product and when I received the bottle it was leaking. The customer service department sent me a new bottle the next day!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good polish, not a good conditioner This is a good tail polish, but not a good conditioner. It is just an OK detangler, but I've used better. I got it because you get a lot for the money, but Canter is a much better conditioner and detangler even though it is more expensive.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from ShowSheen = Show Staple ShowSheen is a must-have for any show. I use it after my pre-show bath on the tail and hind-quarters to help repel dirt and then when I brush the horse's tail out before it goes in the ring. Great product! A little $$ but it does last a long time.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Best for Detangling I have used Show Sheen for shows in the past, but I do not like to use it on the coats. The ingredients it has makes anywhere you spray slippery. If you plan on braiding, or grab the mane while riding, DON'T spray the mane. Also, you can't spray the saddle area, or you will be sliding too.However, I like how it detangles the tail. I spray it in, rub it, and start from the bottom and brush. It makes the tails shine, and keeps them detangled for a few days.So if you are looking for a great detangler, Show Sheen is perfect, but beware where you spray it!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from great product Been using Showsheen for years and it really works. Keeps manes and tails much cleaner and easier to brush out.For those that say it makes your saddle're not supposed to use it in that area ! Use everywhere else you want tho.I don't bother to try other like-products because this always has worked so good. I too dilute it 50-50 with water for everyday use between baths and it works well to keep unruly manes looking nice and not greasy.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from You can't get more classic I have used Showsheen since I was seven years old, and out of every barn I have been to, not one has not carried Showsheen. That's because it works.It repels dust to its best, does help (a bit) on white horses as sunscreen, and is a nice detangler. It really works for every horse, every rider, and is a must have for any barn. I personally poor about half the bottle out and dilute it with water, it really helps on a day to day basis for rationing how much you use.The only problem is with the sprayer, when you spray it does spread, but it goes more to one area, that's why I prefer to spray it on a glove and then brush it onto them.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Must have for the show ring ShowSheen is always on my list to take to horse shows. Excellent product for getting tails to perfectly brush out, while not pulling out precious strands of hair.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not the best product for your horse If you're just looking for a false sheen on your horse, this product is fine. However, it will make your saddle slip (and your boots, and anything else that you put on it). And heaven forbid you get it on your tack - your hands will slip on the reins and your legs will slip over fences. I would highly suggest a true conditioner along with ELBOW GREASE (not sold in stores...) with that curry and brushes. Then you won't have any need for this product!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This Stuff Works Great! I have been using Showsheen for about a year, and I have noticed a big difference in my horses coat after I use it! It makes her so shiny!! I think it works the best right after a bath, but it works well anytime. It is also great if you don't have time to give a bath or as a show ring prep-up in the spring and fall when it is to cold for a bathe. I carry this stuff around in my brush bag, bath bucket, and show-ring-prep grooming bag for shows. The spray bottle is also good quality it has never broken with me before, like a lot of other spraying products have.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good product for the price My Barrel Horse has really long mane and it tangles tight very easy. With Showsheen you dont have to cut it, you just spray it on and brush it out. Its like magic I LOVE IT.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gorgeous Tails in Minutes! This stuff is magic for their tails! Even the most tangled tails can be detangled in 2 minutes! Just spray in and brush and you get thick, fluffy tails. I like using ShowSheen after their bath, spraying everywhere but face, saddle area, and mane. As they dry, the shine! I definitely recommend this to anyone! It saves grooming time and gives you that show ring shine!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this stuff! This stuff is awesome! Spray it on your horse's body and brush through and you get a super shiny/glossy horse. It does make whatever area you put it on pretty slick so don't apply it to the saddle area. It's great as a mane and tail detangler and helps the brush glide through hair easily (just don't apply it to the mane or tail if you plan to braid since it will make the hair too slick to hold on to). It smells so good too. A really great product to make your horse look like a million bucks.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Damages Mane and Tail!!!!! I used this on my mare for a week on her tail and it started to become dry and have breakage. Didn't like it. It makes the hair all greasy and dangerous if you decide to put it on the body. I would NOT recommend it!!! I moved to Cowboy Magic. It is a ton better without silicon and alcohol that dries hair up!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Showshine is the BEST I've tried other products hoping that because they were a little less expensive they would be as good ~ NOT. I will only use showshine. It's the best.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A must have for the show list! I LOVE THIS STUFF! A little really does go along way too! It smells great and makes your horse super shiny and soft ... dont forget slick! But this spray is seriously a must have for anyone who shows anything to give your horse that extra sparkle on his tail and mane and body! Oh it smells great too! The only con is it is a little pricey

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing! My friend's horse is so soft! So I asked her how she got her horse so soft and shinny. She recommended to me ShowSheen Hair Polish. When I got the ShowSheen in the mail, I was so excited! I got to my barn and I sprayed it on my horse Emerson. I swear, he was the most shiny, smooth horse I had ever seen! Though, do not put to much on or it will get quite greasy. But, this is a great product and I defiantly recommend this product. :)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE THIS STUFF!!!!! I absolutely love this stuff, it puts on a great show-day-shine but it's great for the every day kind of tangles you get when you bring the horses in from the pasture.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Must Have For A Show! I have used showsheen for years. At pleasure shows, it seems that if you don't use showsheen, you don't get looked at as often by the judge. My only warning, is that if you are planning on riding bareback, I wouldn't put any on where you will sit, as it makes the horse a little bit slippery.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love it!! Showsheen makes my horses tail so shiny and tangle free!! Its great!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Use it all year round Show sheen is so helpful keeping my horses clean all year, just spray it on when your horse is damp, and the dust just slides off!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this stuff! I've used this product for years. I keep it in our grooming boxes and use it often on all of our horses. Our horses live outside most of the time and by spraying this frequently in their manes and tails, less gets caught in them when they are turned out. The Show Sheen makes grooming so much faster & easier. I love the spray too as my hands don't get so sticky.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best conditioner and shine This is the absolute best shine and coat conditioner available on the market. I have been using this product for many years. I apply every day to the mane and tail and use as a leave-in treatment. I also spray after baths. I highly recommend this product to everyone. Great value for the price of the product.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Proven quality, but a bit tacky I have used this product for many, many years, along with many other companies' products, but I probably won't change it again. Before a weekend when I don't ride my horse, I spray him with ShowSheen, and comes Monday my horse is always easier to clean. I sometimes spray on his hooves (top part only), too, which prevent the pile-up of dirt. The only problem I have is that sometimes it gets a bit tacky after a few days, particularly on his tail, so I usually mix a small amount of human hair leave-in conditioner, and this makes it mighty-might spray that lasts days and days.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Must have grooming product Nice show ring final touch. Great detangler. My mare came in from the pasture with so much burdock in her tail it was one big mass. I sprayed on Show Sheen, waited a few minutes and was able to remove all the burrs without losing any hair or my patience. Great after-bath treatment for mane and tail--apply before hair dries and let dry before combing.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from REALLY bad for tails!! This product is really bad for horses tails. It dries out the tail and causes breakage and if you are like me and are trying to grow back a tail this doesn't help. The braders at the shows also hate this stuff but showsheen does give a nice shine to the tail! but I will not buy again :-/

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I always use Show Sheen I have been using Show Sheen since I was a child. I use it everyday. Great product, something I could not live without.
    Date published: 2012-02-22
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Perfect Amount of Shine I have been using Show Sheen since I have started showing. Just a light spritz of it gets a perfect amount of shine... just enough to catch the judge's eye without overdoing it. If showing halter, use it all over, but if you are showing under saddle, make sure not to put it where the saddle lays, because it will make the horse's back EXTREMELY slippery. It is also great for de-tangling manes and tails.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product I have been using this product for 8 years to put a shine on a pony going to a show, and to detangle the mane and tail. I love it!
