Nifty Pet Equine Sunblock and Aftersun Scores in Summer Sun


Once again I find Oscar having better skin care products than me, as this Summer he has been trialling and testing Nifty Pet Equine Sunblock and Aftersun. We've had some seriously hot days and like humans some horses are more sensitive to sun than others. We wouldn't leave our own skin unprotected on such days, so why would our equines pink bits be any different...?

The 'Nifty Pet' range is by Ruffle Snuffle, a British brand who made Oscar's beloved Stable Pop Horse Ball. Created by Sarah White, an animal behaviourist and trainer who is passionate about positive reinforcement. It is clear that all creatures great and small are at the heart of her range.


Nifty Pet Equine Sunblock overcomes all the application challenges I usually have when using sunscreen on Oscar. Containing a sponge - resembling a make up applicator - once dampened and dipped into the 100% mineral powder sunblock, it forms a paste. Designed to be applied to unpigmented skin, it is safe for use on eyes, noses and genitals providing UVA and UVB protection. Containing zero grease, chemicals or fragrance it is safe to lick and won't irritate or inflame the skin. This unique application method has been proven over the last few months, it clings to the natural oils in the skin. Still on hours later when I return to the yard and perfect on competition days because it whitens and brightens the skin, ideal for greys like Oscar!

Safe to be applied daily...at £4.95 I'll be purchasing another pot in 2018!


Whether you missed a bit...or it's the end of a long hot day the Nifty Pet Equine Aftersun is a wonderfully soothing gel. Safe for equine use, on more than one occasion I have wanted to massage into my shoulders too! Created using aloe vera and seaweed extract for their antioxidant properties and lavender essential oils for healing and calming effects. Applied with your fingertips, once massaged into the skin it is quickly absorbed without leaving a sticky residue and smells heavenly!

Ruffle Snuffle recommend dipping the Sunblock sponge into the Aftersun prior to the mineral powder to offer a 2 in 1 aftersun with sunblock - £3.95 for 100ml a perfect product for your equine health box.

Here is to an Indian Summer...
