How does Show Pony work?

  1. In your Show Pony pack you will find five containers of colour, each of which must be mixed with 500ml of water before use to make a smooth applicable paste. Five separate containers help you manage your usage more effectively, as you may only need to use one container to dye smaller areas such as the tail or mane.
  2. To make one container of dye, simply add the powder to 500ml of water in the bucket, seal the lid firmly and shake until all powder has dissolved. When all powder is dissolved, start applying colour immediately using the sponge provided, starting where the horse is palest and avoiding the eye area and areas you do not wish to be coloured. If you wish to conceal a very pale area you may need to cover this area twice. 
  3. After applying to pale areas, work the colour through the rest of the horse with the sponge, being quite generous with colour and massaging thoroughly. Once the horse is fully covered, leave the colour on for fifty minutes. A crust of colour may form, which is normal, so please do not rinse off until fifty minutes has elapsed.
  4. After fifty minutes, rinse horse thoroughly with warm water. Then generously apply and lather a rinse shampoo, and remove once again with water.  Apply a conditioning crème if required and rinse again, making sure all products are removed from the animal.

Although Show Pony is low irritant and odourless, it is recommended that before applying the colour to your horse’s entire body, make sure you perform a skin test each time before use. A sample of Show Pony colourant is attached to the outside of the kit to perform this test. Firstly, mix the bottle of powder with 50ml of water then apply to most sensitive area of the horse where it is not noticeable (i.e. under the belly area), cover as much of this area as possible, leave for 48 hours then rinse thoroughly. If irritation occurs please do not continue using Show Pony colourants on your animal. Remember, there is a greater chance of you having a reaction to this product than your horse, so always wear gloves when handling the product.
