- Thoroughly wet your horse all over using warm water if at all possible. Start at the hooves and slowly direct the water up the legs before wetting the body.
- When the coat is wet, apply a liberal amount of shampoo and work it into the skin and coat in sections with a grooming brush, curry or sponge.
- If you are fighting a skin issue or this is the first time you’re bathing your horse with Equiderma Shampoo, leave on for up to 1 hour. This allows the herbs and oils to soak into the skin, adding additional benefits.
- Clean the sheath of your male, the vulva of your mare, and around the anus regardless of the gender of your horse. For this, use a clean cloth specifically for these areas.
- Rinse the shampoo until no more foamy residue remains.
- Dry your horse using a sweat scraper or several clean dry towels. Move it in the same direction as the growth of the hair.
- When your horse is as dry as possible using the above method, hand graze in the sun to finish drying.
- For maximum benefit follow with Equiderma Conditioner.
- Add 1 cup of Equiderma Neem & Aloe Conditioner to a bucket of warm water. Blend well.
- Dip the tail and the dock and pour the remainder over your horse starting at the poll and slowly working your way back to the tail.
- Leave on and begin to massage into the coat.
- Wait a few minutes, up to one hour, before rinsing.
- Rinse mane, tail, and coat well until water runs clear.
- Grip the tail below the dock and spin it around to accelerate drying or use a towel to blot dry.
- Wait for the mane & tail to dry fully before combing out. Don’t be concerned about losing some tail and mane hairs. Just like your own hair there will always be some natural sloughing.

Horse Spray ~
To help your fly spray do its work of keeping biting insects away from your horse follow these guidelines:
- Start with a clean horse. Curry and brush well to remove loose hair and dirt before applying repellent.
- Be sure to shake the bottle well before each application, the oils sometimes separate from the neem leaf tea.
- Never store your fly spray in direct sunlight (even from a barn window), as sunlight will break down the active ingredients.
- If you are applying insect repellent to your horse before riding, tack up beforehand. If you spray his entire body and then tack up, heat and pressure in the saddle area can cause irritation to the skin.
- Avoid spraying your horse’s head. Instead, spray the product on a soft cloth and wipe it gently under his eyes, but not above them. For extra protection to the ears, gently massage inside and around the ears.
Zinc Oxide Paste ~
- Gently wash area with Equiderma Neem & Arnica Shampoo. Leave shampoo on for 10 minutes. Rinse and dry thoroughly.
- Gently remove any loose scabs.
- Apply a thin layer of Equiderma Zinc Oxide Paste for pastern dermatitis and sunburn. Leave on.
- Repeat treatment every day until condition clears and no more scabs or inflammation are present.
Wound Ointment ~
- Wash wound thoroughly with chlorhexidine scrub, being sure to get it into all nooks and crannies where infection may occur.
- Gently remove all loose scabs and pat dry.
- Apply directly to wound, being sure to get it into all nooks and crannies to prevent infection.
- Apply 1 – 3 times daily as necessary.
Sheath, Udder & Genital Cleanser ~
- Wet your horse’s sheath well and lubricate your hand with the Equiderma Sheath Cleanser before you start. Use a hose, without the spray attachment, and set to warm. (If you’re lucky enough to have gotten your horse to drop his penis, a cold blast of water will send it packing.) If your horse hasn’t dropped, you’ve only been cleaning the inside of the first sheath chamber. You’ll have to go deeper. In this case, you’ll need to go in up to your elbow, so be sure you’re not wearing your Sunday best. This is a messy business.
- There is a second inner chamber with a small opening about an inch wide. Beyond this is where the penis goes when it fully retracts. This may seem daunting, but you can do it. While watching your horse’s reaction, gently reach inside and massage your fingers back and forth around the sides of the penis and chamber wall. Carefully, explore and slide off any smegma you find there. Use more water and more cleanser as necessary.
- If your horse is especially dirty, apply sheath cleanser and leave it on for a few minutes. Smegma can adhere like “super glue.” If you try to pull it off right away, it can be painful for your horse. Let the cleanser do its job and begin to melt the smegma. Continue this process until the skin feels smooth and clean. Insert your hose deep into the second sheath chamber. Jostle and rinse thoroughly until water runs clear.
- Check for a “bean.” Gently push back the top of the penis. You’ll see or feel the bean. If it isn’t too large, it will slide out with a little help. If it is large, you’ll have to get your finger behind it and slide it out with your thumb and forefinger. Remember to rinse thoroughly after this step. Checking for a bean is essential. They can grow very large as seen in the photo below and cause great pain.
Q: What is a bean?A: The “bean” is a common name for a specific collection of smegma in the tip of the penis. The tube that drains the urine from the bladder is called the urethra, and it protrudes slightly from the center of the head of the penis. Just above the urethra is a recess called the urethral fossa. This area extends to the left and right over the urethra, making a BEAN shaped pocket. Smegma can accumulate within this space, and needs to be removed periodically. Sometimes there is just a small amount of buildup – small beans. In severe cases, the bean can accumulate into a large mass that compresses down onto the tip of the urethra, squashing the opening and making urination painful. Typically, these horses have a flat spray instead of a stream when urinating, and rarely drop. The beans can become as large as a walnut if neglected. Below is a picture of 2 beans removed from a horse’s penis. They are sitting on a 2-inch fence rail. This gives you an idea of how big they can get when sheath cleaning is neglected. This horse was unable to drop his penis, had an irregular urine stream, and a foul odor coming from his sheath area.
GREAT JOB! You’ve learned a crucial lesson in horse husbandry. Next time your horse drops be proud of how bright and shiny everything is down there, and know you’ve done a great thing to ensure his health and comfort.
