Horse grooming serves a few purposes - to remove loose hair and dirt, to keep his skin healthy, and to promote a show ring shine. Your horse's coat will be shiny and healthy by using the most effective grooming tools and new products.
Horse care starts with your elbow grease and a good set of grooming supplies.
The curry comb:
The traditional gold standard of curry combs is the rubber curry. Used in a circular fashion, the curry comb has many designs from which to choose.
After a thorough curry, lift the dirt and loose hair with a dandy brush. These brushes usually have somewhat stiff bristles to flick dirt away.
Stiff brushes are made for tough mud, hooves, and thick winter coats.
Soft brushes are ideal for legs and sensitive areas on your horse. A face brush also has soft bristles that fit around your horse's eyes, ears, and nose.
Finishing brushes have short and tight bristles to add shine and remove the last bits of dust. Quartermarks are easy to create with a finishing brush.
The SleekEz shedding blades help remove a thick winter coat in the spring.
Mane 'n Tail brushes untangle the longer hair on your horse and should be used when your horse's mane and tail are dry. If you braid your horse for shows, add Tail Tamer slick bands to your braiding kit.
The hoof pick is a must. Hoof picks with attached brushes allow you to remove the larger chunks of dirt, and the brush gets into the hoof grooves. Visualizing the crevices of your horse's hoof will tell you if there's a thrush infection that needs medication.
Hoof polishes and conditioners add the finishing touch to your horse's grooming routine and promote hoof health.
In warmer weather, add a few things to your horse's grooming kit.
In colder weather, add these items to your horse care routine.
Liniments are useful in winter to help your horse's joints feel better in the cold air. Your horse may appreciate this before a ride or a farrier visit!

How do I store my grooming brushes?
Your horse will only be as clean as your grooming tools, and you will only be as organized as your grooming tote. Choose from many styles to suit your needs. For a grooming kit that doubles as a step stool, the DuraTote Stool and Tote Box is perfect. The Tough-1 Mesh Wash Tote drains quickly, making storage of your shampoos and conditioners ideal. The Roma Ultimate 10 Piece is the ultimate gift for your equestrian friend or your horse. The durable tub includes horse grooming and bathing supplies.
How do I pick the best shampoo for my horse?
The best shampoo is one that matches your horse's needs. For general cleaning, a milder shampoo such as EQyss Premier Equine Shampoo is perfect. For light-colored horses and grays, whitening shampoos are ideal. Cowboy Magic Shine In Yellow Out and QUIC SILVER Whitening Intensifier & Shampoo are top-rated products. Follow with a conditioning treatment, such as The Original Mane 'n Tail Conditioner.
How do I remove stains when I can't bathe my horse?
Spot removers and no-rinse shampoos are easy and effective when bathing is not possible. Absorbine ShowSheen Miracle Groom and eZall All-Natural Spot Remover provide the power of a bath without water.
