Product Review - Carr & Day & Martin Gallop Colour Enhancing Shampoo for Grey Horses
Updated: May 11
Today I am reviewing Carr & Day & Martin Gallop Colour Enhancing Shampoo for Grey horses. Gallop Colour Enhancing Shampoos are specially formulated for every color of horse. These shampoos can be used in your everyday routine or specifically for show preparation. They include color enhancers and optical brighteners to intensify the horses' natural coat color.
Every grey, white, white-legged, or paint horse owner knows the amount of anxiety that comes with prepping your horse for shows. With Cole, the orange clay of Georgia means a grey horse turned permanently yellow/orange-tinted. When it comes to shows, I usually prepare to give two baths a day. Cole is especially gifted at becoming poop-stained green, even when wearing a blanket and sleazy.
The Carr & Day & Martin Gallop Colour Enhancing Shampoo has made grey horse bathing significantly more tolerable, plus they offer a generous selection of shampoos for all coat colors.
I have been using the Gallop Colour Enhancing Shampoo for Grey horses for almost a year now, and it is an amazing product for many reasons. It creates a beautiful blue/steel tone on Cole's coat. With just a 5-minute soak and one wash, it quickly removes green, yellow, and orange stains. It is a high-quality shampoo that is thick and concentrated, so it's effortless to apply directly to the coat. Also, it lathers and washes out easily. It comes in a 500 ML bottle which lasts me 2-3 months even in warm, summer weather.
Most recently, I went for an extended period without bathing Cole due to consistent below 50's weather. After a month, I gave him his first bath; he had yellow and green "permanent-type" stains that I was positive would require multiple washes or a body clip to fully remove. He is back to his beautiful grey/blue show-ready coat with just one washing.
Lastly, I love the fact that my nails and cuticles are NOT purple-tinted after bathing. In the past, I felt compelled to wear gloves every time I had to bathe any of my grey horses. Otherwise, my cuticles were an intense purple shade for days. This shampoo leaves no purple or blue residue on your hands after bathing! I urge you to give it a try.
