Frequently Asked Questions

How many sets of braids can I braid with 1 container?

One container can braid approximately 10-15 sets of braids. However, this is dependent on how much braiding wax you use based on the texture, volume, and amount of mane your horse has. 

What's in the wax?

Spot On Braiding Wax uses all natural ingredient with no added chemicals. Our wax uses the following ingredients: Beeswax, Candelilla Wax, Shea Butter, Jojoba Oil, Fractionated Coconut Oil, Arrowroot Powder, and Vitamin E. If you're ordering a scented wax, we add either Peppermint Essential Oil or Lavender Essential Oil. 

Is the wax melt proof?

Our wax is made to better withstand the hot temperatures of Northern California, however if you leave your wax container in your car when it is very hot it will melt. That being said, we have done several tests where we have left the wax in our tack room in 108 degree weather and the wax was still solid but a bit soft. We always recommend you to keep the wax in a cool, dry location if possible.

HELP! My wax is super hard!

If you find your wax to be hard and difficult to apply, try putting it in your pocket for about 10-15 minutes to warm it up. 

Can I use your Lavender Scented Braiding Wax at USEF and FEI events?

The ingredient lavender (we use lavender essential oil in our braiding wax) is listed on the forbidden substance list under USEF Drugs & Medications Rules. However, provided that Spot On Braiding Wax used topically (externally, as instructed), there is no need for restricting their use during competition. If these products are used inappropriately this could result in positive finding which would be a direct violation of USEF drug rules. Use our Lavender scented braiding wax at your own risk. We also offer a peppermint and unscented version of our wax as an alternative! Please only use our products as instructed on the labels. 

Ultimately,  it is your responsibility as a competitor to ensure you know USEF/FEI rules if you are competing in recognized events. 

What is your lead time on items? 

All items are made in small batches to ensure a high quality and consistent product. We do not keep large amounts of stock so we can make sure you receive a fresh product. Our current order wait time is about 3-5 days.
