I love my rubber curry comb it works VERY well and super easy to clean. I purchased a grooming kit from:

Roma 7-Piece Deluxe Grooming Kit

It's very inexpensive I've had mine for 3yrs and all the grooming supplies are still in great condition also Horse Supplies | Horse Tack & Horse Equipment - Horse.com has great prices for grooming supplies.

Good old fashioned shedding blade. I spent an hour of quality time with mine and my gelding this afternoon!

I prefer shedding blades, but I know people who swear by those little black shedding blocks, which if you're looking at a tack store are going to be pricey and they wear down with use (and doesn't take much to go through an entire one). However, if you have a restaurant supply store near you, ask if they have grill blocks. They're the same thing, just bigger so you'll have to break off chunks but it'll be a fraction of the price.

Love those! A friend of mine made a homemade version of something very similar around 10 years ago. Simple, and effective. I have to hide mine in the spring 'cause it will wander right out of my grooming bucket...

Ahh Karen! That's what it is. I saw a girl the other day at the barn with one and couldn't figure out what she was using. I wonder if GreenHawk sells one, LOL, just kidding... we know the answer to that.
