Anytime Tara from The Simple Equine comes out with something new, I’m all over it. A number of her products are must haves in my tack trunk or home, so trying a new one is super exciting. The new product is The Simple Equine Root Renaissance Conditioning Spray. I love the Nourishing Avocado Tail Treatment from The Simple Equine (I’m on my like 4th or 5th bottle of this stuff) and this new product is a lightened up version good for using all over the whole body as a conditioning spray. The Tail Treatment was developed to promote healthy tail growth and nourish the hair follicles and skin. The same ingredients are in the new Root Renaissance, but in a much lighter format.
Tara told me she and many of her sponsored riders back east use this as a trick to prevent static taking off winter blankets. I don’t ever really have that problem with blankets, so I can’t attest to that issue…but this stuff has been super helpful for Jax with his clip job. Jax is a chestnut…and he has the stereotypical tricky skin. He gets dry patches, skin irritations, is extra sensitive and moody when clipped. I will mention I also started Jax on a new supplement around the same time I clipped him, but there would not have been enough time for his skin to appreciably change when I clipped him.
This year when I clipped him I used the hell out of this stuff. I mean…I’d finish a small section and then shake this up, spray it all over and brush it in. I have continued to use it a couple of times a week all over since clipping him. He has in the past always been extremely sensitive and itchy. This year…there was none of that… I never caught him desperately rubbing on things. He wasn’t even more annoyed than usual being saddled. He didn’t get overly reactive to my leg touching his freshly clipped sides. And I really think it’s all because I kept his skin really nice and conditioned with this stuff. I’ve unfortunately almost finished the bottle and need to place another order. Lol. I will be reordering though.
Like all of her products, it has the same packaging with the same sprayer. I like the sprayer a little better for targeted things, because it doesn’t apply as much product…but it works fine for all over spraying too. You just have to spray a few more times that you would with a big sprayer bottle.
I think the quality is good and the price is good. A little goes a long way and it certainly helped soothe his skin more than any large brand spray conditioner I’ve used. As with the other products from this brand, the quality is top notch and the ingredients are safe to use on horse and human alike.
If you have a horse with itchy, dry skin this might be a great product for you to try. I really like it for Jax and it helped keep his skin and hair shiny and not itchy with clipping this year!
