Subject: RE: [RC] Rehydrating your horse's skin and coat - Dream Weaver

I was always told that the best endurance horses are the most sensitive skinned ones and have found that to be true. I tend to avoid problems by preventing them and have in fact turned on several high mileage and multiday riders onto using Eqyss or aloe to keep their horses skin and coats soft and supple while competing in high mileage seasons. I really like how the horses coats are soft and their skin underneath is in good shape - the neighbors horse that I just petted and scratched has dried dandruff flakes coming out but my horses that have already completed 560 AERC miles this year don't.

Using these things to keep the coat and skin soft and supple has absolutely nothing to do with tack sores, rubs or galls. It's just for helping the skin and coat during times of more extreme work, natural shedding and/or climate changes that some of our horses experience.
