The Ingenious Horse Shampoo Dispenser Idea Using a Bar Optic for Tidy Tails and Manes - Horse Cleaning Masters Of Shampoos ™

Redefining Horse Grooming with a Pub-inspired Twist!

When we think of wall-mounted bottle optics, we often picture the ambience of a well-lit pub, with glistening bottles ready to pour out perfect shots of our favourite spirits. But what if you took this concept and introduced it to the world of horse care? Liv, the partner of Lewis Carrier Dressage, just did that, and we're all ears (or should we say tails?).


Bar Optic for Horse Shampoo?


Thanks to Liv's genius DIY project, which was recently showcased on Instagram and then shared on a Facebook post, the days of cluttered bottles of horse shampoos crowding the wash bay are over. Her creative idea? Using a bar's wall-mounted bottle optics as a shampoo dispenser. This not only saves space but also ensures there are no spillages or waste.

Why a Bar Optic for Horse Shampoo?

It's all about efficiency and precision. Typically, when you think of a bar optic, you imagine pouring out a 25ml shot of gin, vodka, or whisky. Now, imagine replacing that with your favourite horse shampoo. Every time you use the optic dispenser, you get a perfect 25ml amount. No more guessing, no more wastage, and definitely no more shampoo bottles lying around.

How to Set Up Your Horse Shampoo Dispenser

Interested in setting up your own horse shampoo dispenser? Here's how:

  1. Choose Your Optic: Depending on your needs, you can opt for a 4-bottle optic or a 6-bottle optic version. Both are readily available on (Clicking on the links will take you directly to the product page.)

  2. Installation: Follow the instructions provided with the optic. Ensure it's securely mounted on a wall or a sturdy surface in your wash bay or grooming area.

  3. Fill it up: Once mounted, fit your bottle of shampoo to the optics holder.

  4. Dispense: Use the dispenser at the bottom of the optic to release approx 25ml of shampoo. If 25ml of shampoo is not enough then take a look at this 50ml dispenser version.

Not quite ready for an optics dispenser?

If a wall mount pub/bar optics dispenser is not for you, then there is an option of either going with a chrome wall mount 500ml double bottle holder
