Purchase: I free-leased a black horse for a summer and was looking at coat colour-enhancing products to give his coat that extra pop at shows. Pleasant Ridge in Ontario, Canada sells Shapley's Equitone Colour Enhancing Shampoo for $11.95 for a 16oz bottle.

Likes: The smell. The black shampoo (for black and bay horses) smells faintly of black licorice. The bottle is also of a suitable size for smaller hands - it's easy to hold and squeeze, and the cap (a little spout that flips up or down) is also more practical than regular flip or push caps.

Dislikes: I really didn't find that it enhanced my horses coat all that much. I tried it several times, and really wanted to notice a difference, but sadly it just felt like an extra and unnecessary step when bathing the horse. I've used the product for the entire summers worth of shows and still have some left over. Once I use up the rest of the bottle, I likely won't buy it again.

Quality: A regular plastic bottle with a little spout on the cap that flips up or down. The bottle is made of thin enough plastic that it's easy to squeeze but doesn't feel flimsy. The shampoo is also a nice consistency.. not overly thick but not as thin as water.

Summary: This product has a couple of things going for it but in my opinion, not enough to warrant buying it separately to use in addition to regular horse shampoo. I'd save a step and just use regular horse shampoo from nose to tail - the results will be about the same.
