Rated 4.9 out of 5 by 17 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Quick The shipping is always quick. Be warned though, that this product does NOT come with the spray head - at least mine didn't. I haven't used it yet, I have to first find a spray head for it. January 10, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Awesome stuff Don't go a day without using it on mane and tail. Just like fly spray a must have in the stable! August 20, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Amazingness in a bottle I've been using show sheen for about 16 years now, and no matter what i always fall back on it as my go to product for getting a gorgeous luster out of the horses coat, great for last minute show touch ups, Best to be used right after a deep cleaning bath. Leaves the horses feeling like silk! Amazing use on paint horses as well, For all those paint owners who know how tough it is to keep the white white, this does a great job at repelling/coating against dirt and stains. The price feels a little steep when you see it, having never used it but give it a go and you will not regret it! I always buy the gallon jugs, Having 4 horses and a mini with a thick mane which likes to attract all sorts of nasties... It is well worth it in the morning when your horse is practically spotless. Any dirt that is on your horse when its sprayed with show sheen just sits on top of the hairs, all you have to do is take a finishing brush and run over the horse quickly and you're golden. A lot of people out here say avoid using it in the saddle area as it makes your horse so slick.. Never really had that problem, So i guess it really just depends on the user. Definitely a must have in any horse owner or show groomer's tote. August 15, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Silky, soft mane and tail Left my horse super soft, I then braid her mane and tail to keep them as nice as possible for as long as possible. Her tail and mane felt course, but this product them silky. LOVE it April 27, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love love This stuff makes my horse soooo soft and shiny!!! People always comment on how soft he is! I love that it repels dirt and dust also! Helps to keep him a little cleaner out in the pasture than if he didnt have this on him!! And yeah, it is slippery so I wouldn't recommend putting it where your saddle goes if you are going to ride bareback especially.... I have ridden my horse after using this stuff with a saddle and it was perfectly fine, it didn't make me slip and slide all over. January 11, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great For EVERYTHING The first time I ever ordered ShowSheen, I must admit I was a bit nervous of the price even though I had heard so many great things about it. Once I used it however, I was hooked. It literally keeps hair silky, smooth, and CLEAN for a week! Great for both horses and dogs and with it's new fresh scent everyone keeps asking what I use on my horse. Go ahead and buy a gallon - it sure is worth it! April 28, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by The Best!!! I love this product. Not only does it get my horse clean but it doesn't smell horrible like the other brands I have tried. No other brand can match ShowSheen! March 22, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Absolutely the best coat product ever! I have used this for over 20 years & havent found anything that even comes close to it for shine & conditioning. Has so many differnt uses. Leaves hair shining for over 24 hours & very soft. Best way to apply this is while horse is still damp spray horse rub in around then brush your horse. Also makes tails easy to comb through if you put on wet allow to dry then comb is best. November 15, 2010

I always use this after a bath while the hair is still wet. Adds shine and helps keep off dirt dust and mud.

can i buy by the case?
Dario A on Oct 12, 2015
Best Answer: I don't know. I've only bought bottle by bottle. I have only 1 horse, so by the case would take me forever to use. A little will go a long way. My bottle lasts me for months. I use it primarily on his mane and tail and squirt it on my grooming brush to do his body when necessary. He's not a "show" horse, so just ordinary brushing w/out any Sho-Sheen works for him.
