Instructions for use before you apply the colour

Before you begin you must read and conduct the following to ensure the product is used correctly and is suited for your horse or pony:

Please test prior to show or event to ensure product gives you the results you wish to achieve.

Skin Sensitivity Test
All skin sensitivity tests should be carried out by law. Skin tests should be carriedout 48 hours prior to a colour. If possible, testing one week prior to event is recommended.

To test if the horse is sensitive to colour, simply apply a small amount of colour on the horses belly in between their two front legs. Leave on for 48 hours then rinse thoroughly. 

If the skin becomes irritated do not use the product.

Tips for successful applications:
Take your time, allow for at least 3 hours for the whole process. One hour to apply the colour properly and the other time to wash off and go over any missed areas.

Do not do a zigzag affect, try to layer the colour on stroke by stroke (like painting a wall) by applying even Pressure to the brush, once you have applied the colour massage like you are washing a car.

If possible do not apply colour in sunlight as it may dry up quickly, apply indoors then take outside to dry. Try to colour your horse or pony at least 1 week before the event, this gives you time to touch up an allows the colour to look its best on your horse or pony during the competition.

Only darken more than 3 shades darker than your horses natural colour.
Start on any patches that may be resistant to colour before starting from the top of the back of the head. 
Allow horse or pony half an hour to cool down after being rugged, this will avoid any hotspots.

Please follow the instructions provided when colouring:
