The search is on to find the new equine face of exciting pet skincare range WildWash.

Horse magazine has joined forces with WildWash to make one very special horse or pony - and their owner/rider/loaner/sharer - a star by appearing in the company's advertising campaigns and promotional material in 2016.

WildWash shampoos are made from natural ingredients and contain no parabens, sulphates, petrochemicals or synthetic fragrances. The equine range includes a Whitening Shampoo, Ultra Shine Shampoo, Gentle Shampoo and Medicated Shampoo. The products harness the power of herbs and plants, including chamomile, lavender, aloe vera and lemongrass.

WildWash shampoos are super-concentrated and dilute to a 32:1 ratio, which means a 1 litre bottle will give up to 33 washes.
