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.

    My main to-go for skin issues!

    Officially obsessed with the drying paste! I literally use it for almost all skin issues... cannon crud, minor wounds and scratches, bug bites, sweet itch, mud fever, etc. Already on my 2nd large tub, and I only have two horses. Thanks for a fantastic, pure, natural and EFFECTIVE product, Coat Defense! Very grateful!

    Love this product. Aug. 8 we took in a 32 yr. old mare. Neglect case. She had large areas on her body with bumps and scabs. Vet thought fungal. I bought 1 jar and pasted it on all the places using have a jar. It took care of most of the spots, so have used the other have to and applied to places I missed the first time. Really am impressed with this stuff.

    Mud Scratches

    Trouble Spot Drying Paste works wonders on mud scratches. You do have to attack the lesions early, not after you have a leg covered in scabs. But if you dress a few scabs early, and stick with it, treating them every day, you will most likely clobber them in about a week. If your horses are turned out and you live where it cools off a lot at night, making the grass very dewy, be sure to dry the legs and scab areas very well before applying the paste - it doesn't stick well to damp skin. If your horse does have a very bad case of mud scratches you will most likely need to get him on a course of antibiotics, but also use the Drying Paste, it will help speed up the healing time.

    Coat Defense Paste

    Coat Defense paste is a great product. It has healing properties and it keeps the wound covered. Keeping flies off a cut or wound is just as important as medicating it. Because it dries after applying when they roll nothing sticks to it. It stays covered for days so you don't need to reapply daily. Worth every penny. I buy it at my local tack store.

    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.
