The Horse Bath Perfected - Dover Saddlery Offers Innovative Options
Sponge, bucket, baby shampoo, and garden hose …not too long ago, those were the common ingredients for bathing a horse. But times have changed. Technology has showered the equine industry with many new innovative options for bathing a horse.
After extensive product testing, the buyers at Dover Saddlery have incorporated the leading advances for bathing horses in the Dover 2005-06 catalog. Whether you are primping your horse for a big show or giving a healthy hose down after a hot summer's day trail ride, it's worth checking out the latest options to help save time, water and energy in the wash rack.
Wash Stall Sprayer Boom
This Schedule 40 steel frame boom attaches easily to a wash area wall with the hardware provided. The boom, which extends 4' to 8', prevents the hose from getting underfoot, and with the spray wand, allows easy access to all areas of the horse. The 25' utility hose that comes with the unit, has a soothing fan spray nozzle. As most wash stalls also double as grooming areas, the Sprayer Boom folds easily out of the way when not in use.
The Stanley Blower Fan
Is there a line for the wash rack? Need to dry your horse off quickly so he doesn’t roll when wet? The versatile new Stanley Blower Fan will measure up to the task. With three powerful speeds, this handy, portable blower can ventilate a stall or dry or cool down your horse. The pivoting head allows airflow to be directed for maximum results. UL listed, this rugged tool is easy to carry and a breeze to store.
EZ All Foamer
The equivalent of a powerwasher for horses, this heavy-duty foamer, with quick attach nozzle, regulates the application of bathing products automatically. Use it to apply EZ's Total Body Wash, a concentrated, all natural shampoo that safely loosens dirt and conditions the coat. Or put the EZ All Foamer to use with EZ's Show and Go-Leave in Conditioner, specially formulated to help hair follicles resist dust with a glowing result.
Hozelock Fast Reel Hose Storage
Tired of rewinding hoses? The Hozelock easily, quickly and properly rewinds its 100' of hose with the turn of the handle; no overwinding, no tangling, no problems. Available in either wall mount or free standing model, the Hozelock comes with quick connect fittings and nozzle.
The Dover Saddlery catalog can provide detailed information on these as well as other new products designed to help make time in the stable enjoyable and efficient and ultimately, help to maximize your 'in saddle' time.
