Horse Grooming Kits
to Look for in Horse Grooming Kits
a horse is an essential part of maintaining a horse’s health and
is why you should have proper horse grooming kits. A grooming kit
is the term that is given to the required combs and brushes your
horse needs to remain clean, maintain a shinning coat and stay healthy.
Each of the items in the kit is used for different purposes, and
it is significant for you to know what their primary function is
before using them.
following is a detailed list of some of the many items that should
be a part of horse grooming kits:

that are more sensitive, such as the horse’s head. The body brush
is usually designed with a leather back that can be either soft
or hard, and its purpose is to remove the dust and grease from the
Brush – Unlike the body brush, the dandy brush is used for the
less sensitive parts of the horse’s body, such as the back and sides.
This brush has long bristles that are stiff so that it can penetrate
the coat and remove any dry surface dirt.
Brush – Used when applying water in order to wash or dampen
a horse’s tail, coat or mane, the water brush is a great tool that
works to help clean the horse from dirt and grime.
Comb – There are two types of mane combs that you can make apart
of horse grooming kits. The standard mane comb can either be metal
or plastic and is used for the basic purpose of combing the horse’s
tail and mane, while the short mane comb is usually metal and its
purpose, unlike its counterpart, is for pulling the mane and can
be used, along with other special horse combs, for cutting to make
the mane thinner.
