Review For New Stain Remover and Whitener

A great review from the Florida Equestrian Magazine for Absorbine's New ShowSheen Stain Remover and Whitener.

Whether you have a gray horse, a light colored horses, or a horse with a lot of chrome, getting out tough stains can be one of the biggest challenges and can be very time consuming. Dirt, manure, and urine stains can require a lot of scrubbing and cleaning before the stubborn stains will budge. I have tried several whitening products on my horses’ legs, and while some have worked with a lot of hard work on my end, none have been as easy to use with such great results as Absorbine ShowSheen
Stain Remover & Whitener.

IMG 3285 150x150 Product Review: Absorbine ShowSheen Stain Remover & WhitenerAbsorbine ShowSheen Stain Remover & Whitener will cut your grooming time down significantly. My horse has been turned all winter, and though his legs get brushed occasionally, his socks were stained to more of a brown color than white. As per instructions, I brushed the loose dirt off before application. After reading the instructions for the “Quick Clean-Up”, which said to apply the Stain Remover & Whitener for 1-5 minutes depending on the severity of the stain, I applied the stain remover directly to the stains and decided to leave it on for 3 minutes.

IMG 3288 150x150 Product Review: Absorbine ShowSheen Stain Remover & WhitenerIt was so easy to apply using the convenient spray bottle. I was happy to see the product started working almost as soon as I applied it. After 3 minutes, I rinsed off his leg and ran out to take a picture, as I was so shocked at the results. His sock was glistening white in just a total of 4 minutes later without any scrubbing or shampooing. Absorbine ShowSheen Stain Remover & Whitener does not contain bleach and is color-safe. It also is pH balanced and includes ingredients such as green tea and fruit extracts so that it nourishes and conditions hair while the Oxi-Eraser stain lifters are working.

I would highly recommend this product for anyone that has a horse with any chrome markings, or has a light colored or gray horse. Absorbine ShowSheen Stain Remover & Whitener was easy to use, quick, virtually mess-free, and the results speak for themselves. The price for this product is better than comparable products. It is perfect for a fast-paced horse show morning where both time and turnout are of the essence, or whenever you want your horses to look their best. It is definitely a must have for your grooming kit.

Absorbine Sponsors the Popsters Show Team

2011 Horse Of The Year Show Supreme In Hand Pony Champions, The Popsters Show Team are now sponsored by Absorbine - The Horse World's Most Trusted Name.

Justin Davies and his partner Heidi Bennett run the Popsters Stud in Gloucestershire, breeding and showing Welsh ponies in hand.  They had a tremendous season with their homebred ponies in 2011, culminating with Parvadean Delight winning the Supreme In Hand Pony Championship at HOYS.  By taking this title Parvadean Delight has earned herself a place not only in her breed's history but also the HOYS Hall Of Fame by becoming the first Welsh pony of cob type to take this prestigious final since it was started back in 1965.  Justin and Heidi also help run the Parvadean Stud for Justin's father Jack and brother Jeremy. 

Heidi said "we show all four sections of the Welsh stud book but primarily we show Welsh mountain ponies (Section A) and Welsh ponies of cob type (Section C).  Our breeding programme focusses on breeding a certain type of Section C pony - "The original pony of cob type" with the emphasis on the pony traits.  Over the last 15 years we have been lucky enough to produce for many of the top Welsh studs around the UK and we have also produced for owners as far away as Sweden and Australia".

"We use Absorbine ShowSheen in the ponies manes and tails on a regular basis to keep them tangle free and easy to manage but especially before a show after bathing we apply it all over the body, mane and tail".
