Um, would steer clear of bleach :s

Your typical gallop greys shampoo or carr&day&martin products work well enough

I use Persil, it works wonders on getting white tails sparkling. Only use it on the hairs though, not on the actual bone.

Don't use bleach - it looks like its worked at first then the ends go yellow

I tried soda crystals on ponies socks and feathers for our last show and they worked ok but she was in season so they were a bit grim to start with

Also for on the day, CHALK!!!!!! chalk into a paste, and chalk powder, fab stuff!

Some people i know use fair liquid on tails etc....... also for legs etc, it sounds silly but purple shampoo (often used on black and dark horses...) works fab and brings out the white really well!!! its a bit disconcerting at first coz ur like o dear I have a purple horse, but wow it comes out white afterwards!

Lemon fairy liquid, other than that put chalk on and bandage it with the chalk still wet then when you take off the bandage and brush out the chalk it works

I spend ages trying things for white - I have a skewbald and a clydesdale.

I have just tried using the new arial excel gel mixed with green fairy washing up liquid - 50 - 50 - bought Farra's feather up snowy white - they were a mild tan colour due to not being washed since October and her piddling down them. Bearing in mind I used cold water, I was amazed with the results.

It is even better (according to my showing instructor) if you use warm/hot water.

I also used some cheap tesco conditioner afterwards and had I been showing, would have mixed some equine blue in the stuff to get the last of any yellow out.
