Grooming is more than just keeping your horse clean. Grooming is a way for you to get to know your horse’s coat and skin. This will also help you know when something is wrong and needs attention. Grooming is not a chore but a special time when you and your horse learn to trust each other and form a bond.
Never use anything other than your hands or a soft towel when grooming a horse's face.
Question: Can I use my hairbrush to clean my horse’s coat?
Answer: Not unless you want a broken brush and a dirty horse! To properly groom your horse, you need a kit of special tools that have specific jobs.
Here are some common grooming tools:
Start your grooming routine with a rubber Curry Comb to loosen the dirt. Next, use a Dandy Brush to remove the dirt. Finally a Body Brush puts the finishing touch on the coat.
The “saddle patch” is the place where the saddle sits on a horse’s back.
