Tested by Your Horse editor, Imogen Johnson.
"I first used the ‘Gentle’ wash in this range for my mare who has very sensitive skin. It comes in a large 1-litre bottle, which is heavily concentrated for use when diluted. With the Shampoo you get an additional mixing bottle. To this you add a little of the concentrated shampoo (you fill to a clearly labelled ‘fill line’) then top up the bottle with clean water.

Using the mixing bottle the shampoo can be dilluted at a 32 to 1 ratio

"The key thing about this product for me is that I was amazed at how little I needed to use and how long the bottle lasted. A little goes a very long way!

"What’s more, I found I could squirt a little of the diluted solution straight from the bottle onto a sponge, then onto my horse which saved water, shampoo, time and mess! It also meant that if I only wanted to tackle a small area, it was easy and meant I didn’t have to drench my horse.

Post wash, over the next few days her coat looked great and any areas of dry, flaky skin (she "suffers form sweet itch) seemed to be much improved.

"All in all this product is easy to use and does a really good job. You might, at first, shy away from the price tag (£24.95) but I felt it was worth it. One bottle seems to last and last."
