Find the right horse grooming brush with the help of Blain’s Farm & Fleet.
When you’re grooming your horse, you probably don’t give much thought to the grooming tools you’re using. The right grooming brush can help you get the job done quickly. Plus, it’s essential to have a few different types of brushes and combs in your grooming kit. With the help of Blain’s Farm & Fleet, you can learn more about the different types of grooming brushes and how to pick the right one for your horse.
Rubber Curry Comb – If you have any comb in your grooming kit, it should be a rubber or plastic curry comb. It’s used to help loosen up dirt and hair, while also massaging your horse’s skin and helping with oil production.
Metal Curry Comb – Metal curry combs are best used for cleaning hair out of other brushes while you’re grooming your horse. The sharp metal can cause small nicks. If you need to take care of caked-on mud, use a shedding blade.
Shedding Blade – A shedding blade is used to remove loose hair and caked-on mud.
Dandy Brush – After you’ve brought dirt and dust to the coat’s surface, you can use a dandy brush to remove any of the dirt.
Body Brush – A body brush is soft, and to be used over your horse’s whole body. Used in long, smooth strokes, a body brush removes dander and dust while making your horse’s coat shine by bringing out natural oils.
