Do I need to put sunscreen on my horse?

Anywhere that your horse has white hair means underneath they will have pale/pink skin or skin with less/no pigment. This skin has the potential to get sunburnt. The muzzle or nose is the most common place for a horse to get sunburnt. 

Using sunscreen on your horse in these white haired areas is recommended. Sunscreen can prevent sunburn and the blistering or skin damage that comes with it, as well as reducing the risk of skin cancer developing.

Be sure to use a sunscreen that has been specifically developed for use in horses. We like Filta-Bac Anti-Bacterial Sunscreen or NRG Noze Cream. Remember that sunscreen will need to be applied daily or a couple of times each day for best protection.
