Caring for the mane and tail must be viewed as an essential component of professional horse care. By taking on a regular grooming practice, dirt is removed and the mane and tail gets clean and shiny. Horse care also helps examine possible injuries and horse diseases. When brushing and currying the mane and tail, skin injuries, swelling or ticks may be found.
Proper Care of the Mane and Tail
Horse care for the mane and tail increases the horse’s daily well-being and also contributes to establishing a good communication between the horse and the horse back rider. Mane and tail care should take place at least 2 to 3 times per week, which will prevent knotting. For mane and tail care, use peticare® care for mane and tail. Additional horse care products can be found in our online shop.
Mane and Tail, Brushing and Combing the Horses
The peticare® care for mane and tail is distinct from other mane and tail care products because of its new and innovative technology. Peticare® mane and tail care has been developed over the recent years with the use of the latest molecular technology. The caffeine and silk proteins, which are contained in the mane and tail care is combined with adjuvants into a tiny, porous and homogeneous structure (matrix). The adjuvants help ensure that the matrix releases the active ingredients evenly and steady over a period of up to 24 hours.
All peticare® products are depot (delayed release) remedies.
Due to the depot effect, the caffeine and silk proteins are stored and not released at once. This retardeffect ensures a delayed release of the active ingredients, which provides a long-term effect. The growth-promoting caffeine is continuously released and reaches the horse skin over a period of up to 24 hours. It penetrates the hair follicle and works directly at the hair root. The silk proteins form a protective film around each individual hair, which ensures sufficient moisture and perfect all-round protection, over a period of up to 24 hours.After approximately five applications, this dirt-repellent, protective film is completely built up and can unfold its effect to 100%.
In comparison, more conventional products cannot achieve this depot effect. They only act superficially and for a few hours, even minutes. It is only through a continuous and uniform delivery of caffeine and silk protein that the structure and growth pattern of the mane and tail can be improved. The technological integration of the active substances into a depot and relayed release effect, over a steady period of time, ensures that all requirements for professional care of the mane, tail and fur are met.
