Got a dirty pony?! No worries! We asked PonyApp to share their tips and tricks to freshen up your grooming kit with the tools you need to take your pony to next level SHINE!
Typically the first brush used when grooming your horse! Curry combs are made with either hard rubber or metal. They loosen up all the dirt and loose hair on your horse to make the rest of the grooming process easier and more thorough!
BONUS TIP: Curry your horse more often during the change of season between Winter and Spring to help lighten their coat! Also, the more you curry, the more your horse will shine!
A medium brush can be used for the body or legs! Its texture and structure are a bit softer on the horse so it is optimal for horses who have a bit more sensitive legs!
A soft brush is best used on the face! It’s soft bristols and texture will allow you to get into all the nooks and crannies of your horses face without it being too uncomfortable for them!
A comb is best used on the forelock and mane! It is also a great tool when braiding or plaiting as it can help you section out the mane and hold it in place!
BONUS TIP: When braiding or plaiting, you can tie a piece of string around a portion of the comb to help you measure out even chunks of hair!
A towel is used as an excellent finishing tool while grooming your horse. You can use a towel anywhere on the horse's body and if there are any pesky stains you can combine the towel with your favorite stain removing product to give your horse that perfect finishing glow!
