My horse has what almost look a like dandruff or just flakey skin on his front legs, in front of the girth point(elbow area?) any tips preventing and getting it out?

My horse may have had a problem similar to you, I suggest keeping it clean, and possibly putting some Vaseline on the area once a week type thing
Regular sponging down of that area might help :)
Or it might be exma in that place?
