Prevent & Treat with the Best Defense - COAT DEFENSE®

The dry barrier solution to equine skin & coat problems

Does your horse suffer from scratches, mud fever, cannon crud or dew poisoning? Do they get hives, painful bug bites or even summer sores? Have they ever had a painful wound, laceration or proud flesh? COAT DEFENSE® TROUBLE SPOT DRYING PASTE is an all-natural, safe and effective solution that can help speed the healing of multiple equine skin ailments.

Our paste can be used on horses who have broken skin or open wounds to create a protective barrier. It relieves on contact, all while continually drawing out toxins and moisture, finally allowing skin cells to mend. It is non-toxic if licked, and can safely be reapplied as needed.


  • Speeds healing on insect bites, scratches, wounds, summer sores and proud flesh.
  • Relieves itch caused by insect bites, sweet itch, inflammation and cellulitis.
  • Acts as a poultice on inflammation and cellulitis.
  • Creates a barrier between insects and horses’ skin when applied in a diluted formula.
  • Prevents summer sores by creating a barrier when applied to broken skin.
  • Humans love it for bites, stings, poison ivy, acne, and splinters!
  • Prior to application, gently clean any dirt or debris from treatment area. DO NOT pick off any existing scabs.  Allow scabs to fall off on their own with Paste.
  • Using fingertips, scoop paste from container, and spread thickly over treatment area. Spread as if covering bread with peanut butter, spread to surrounding areas and down to the skin. Do not rub in. 
  • Let paste dry to a near white shell and leave on for several days.
  • Reapply as necessary until skin is fully healed.
  • For open wounds, to achieve better adhesion of the paste, first dry oozing by patting with a clean cloth and/or applying COAT DEFENSE® daily Preventative Powder.
  • Paste is also effective if thinned out with water or witch hazel. A more paint like layer of the paste provides an effective barrier between exposed skin (ears, bellies, etc.) and biting insects.
  • To remove, please wet first. Paste become abrasive when it is dry.
  • Use COAT DEFENSE® daily Preventative Powder to prevent future flare-ups. It’s a game changer for prevention!

For dark horses: In very rare instances, regular use of COAT DEFENSE® TROUBLE SPOT DRYING PASTE may magnify the lightening effect of the sunlight and sweat. For our peace of mind, please test in a small area first.

Proprietary blend of Sodium Bicarbonate, maranta arundinacea (arrowroot) powder, bentonite clay, zea mays (corn starch), witch hazel, argan oil, mentha piperita (peppermint) oil.

Our products are non-toxic, crafted from only safe, readable ingredients, and contain no fillers. COAT DEFENSE® is proudly handmade in Ashburn, VA.

    Coat Defense has saved my horses more than once. The latest was scratches on his back leg. I’ve never encountered scratches on the side of the leg. But Coat Defense saved the day.

    I Will always use this!

    This was recommended to me by a fellow barn member for my paint/draft with a mild case of scratches. While I waited for my order to arrive (which wasn’t long) I was able to use hers and it was so good! It was working in three days. I quickly ordered a larger second container and use it regularly on any spots that pop up, and even on other scrapes! The powder has been great for her legs to maintain healthy skin and hair. I also use it on her saddle pad after rides. She seems to enjoy the feeling of the products also! It has, without a doubt done what it says it will do!

    A Rub on my Horse's Head had me at the End of My Rope

    My horse developed a rub by the corner of her eye where both the halter and bridle continually rub. I tried several other products including an ointment, which overnight, made the sore larger (from a dime to a quarter in size). Unfortunately, as I wasted time with other products, she started to develop some proud flesh, now I was really worried. I purchased the Coat Defense paste (I'd been using the powder for scratches with 100% success) and dabbed some on. It hardened and stayed like a bandaid over the sore, protecting it from the halter, bridle and flies while it healed the wound and ate the proud flesh. This is a miracle product and should be in everyone's medicine cabinet!!

    Great product

    My horse had terrible problem with scratches. The vet recommended a daily routine - which took an hour per day and no results. I found this product searching online and ordered. After using for 2 weeks, the scratches were all gone. I recommend this product to everyone as it works and easy to use.

    Works like a Charm

    I've ordered the paste and the powder multiple times over the past couple of years. It's my go-to treatment for all things fungus in Florida.
