Question Best Grooming Products and your dream grooming supply

Hello everyone!

I am interested in seeing what your personal favorite grooming supplies are and what your dream grooming supply would be!

What would your dream shampoo and conditioner be like? Your dream fly spray etc..

Thought this would be an interesting fun topic!

My favorite grooming products are cowboy magic detangler. It works so well and makes tails really silky. Another good product is Pepi, it's like Showsheen without the greasy feeling and it smells sooooo good.

My dream grooming products would be a heated washrack, a horse vacuum, and gallop shampoo for bay/brown horses is on my Christmas list.

I am on the lookout for some product like show sheen without the silicon! Not being slippery would be nice, but not necessary.

I would love a nice heated and air conditioned grooming stall and a wash stall with heated water and heaters overhead.

I love, love , love the Eqyss avocado spray. It smells amazing and works so much better than show sheen and mane and tail conditioner. Plus when I use it with only a little fly spray the flys seem to stay away more than just the fly spray alone. In the summer I go through this stuff like crazy.
I would also like a hot water heater with an indoor horsey shower room . And let's add a horsey dryer to the list.
But back to reality .... MTG is a must have for the winter. Put it in the base of the mane 1x/week and by summer the mane is longer and fuller. The down side is it smells like beggin strips all week .

I use and really like Oster products.

For shampoos and sprays and stuff I like either Mane and Tail, or Absorbine.
All really fantastic brands.

The sensitivity of the internet baffles me.

Elbow grease is the best grooming tool and plenty of it. Corn starch helps with detangling. Regarding elbow grease. Two little girls began grooming their pony, one on each side daily until their arms wanted to drop off. They did this daily for 10 days. This pony was on turnout. At the end of 10 days that pony's red coat gleamed. People at the show kept asking me what they'd used - a curry, a brush and lots of elbow grease. The vigorous grooming provided a good skin massage which increased blood flow to the skin. That's the way I learned to do it and it's still done at the race tracks and still the best way.

Let's see....

Best spray in coat conditioner - Healthy Hair Care Coat Conditioner
Best shampoo - Suave Coconut Shampoo
Best conditioner - Suave Coconut conditioner
Best detangler - Cowboy Magic detangler and shine
Best washing tool - Epona scrubbing cloth
Best curry comb - those soft gel curry combs

I have no favorite brushes, but those supplies I listed are my go to supplies. Out of the many products I've used over the years, those have been the very best in my opinion.

Strength is not defined by physical ability. It is determined by your actions and the compassion of your soul.

Sorry for the second post. Horse vacuums ars amazing! Especially during the spring when they are shedding out. I used to borrow my friends all the time. I'd love to have one of my own. :)

My trainer bought the vacuum. I am having trouble getting my horse used to it. I think it doesn't help that because it scares him, he scares me a bit, and we're both nervous about it. hahaha!

Life seems mighty precious, when there's less of it to waste.
