Best Horse Grooming Products Poll?

Hi All,
I've recently started a tack shop and I'm intereted in hearing from horse owners on what they like. If you have a favorite or can't be without grooming product I'd like to hear about it and why you think it is the best. Also suggestions on the new site would also be appreciated.

Thanks much

For shedding, nothing beats the Furminator. It was WONDERFUL for all of our horses, but esp. our 30 year old QH gelding with a super fuzzy double coat. They are more expensive but the quality was great and they work.

It seems when we have had grooming tool discussions the jelly scrubber was always a favorite among members.

I love the furminator too - works great on dogs and horses. Regarding the jelly scruber do you know who makes it? Appreciate the suggestions.

Love my furminator, love my jelly scrubber too:) I also really love my horseman's knife, and I've never found one of those at any of my local tack shops...had to order it online. The quality is not the best, but I really like the array of tools in this one.

Haha they are awesome. I really like shedding blades; they work wonders.

Ride more, worry less.

Yup, I love my jelly scrubber. It's the best currycomb in my opinion because you can use the softer side on more sensitive areas like the face and legs.
I found a photo, but not who makes it, sorry.


I also like these sweat scrapers. Once I saw one with a shedding blade on the other side, which I think would be very useful.

Gear you won't find anywhere else like neat patterns, different colors out of the typical ones. I always love to see halters with different colors and designs. Grooming gear, books and DVDs. It seems that stores have very limited selections for those.

I like the Vetrolin line of grooming products. Hoof Heal is also my "must have" hoof ointment. It is the best stuff I have ever used, and I've tried a lot of different topicals. The two fly sprays I can't live without are Endure and Pyrahna, the Pyrahna (sp?) in the aresol can works a LOT better than the one in the spray bottle. A first-aid must have for me is Eclipse Wound Wash and their ointment. It's pricey, but it WORKS!

tack shop products

I agree, I like the fun colors and variations from the "norm." I've been able to order in some custome horse halters with holographic trims so would appreciate suggestions on those products. I also love love love books and have added on under my links section an astore by amazon to include hundreds of books from them. I'm still looking into the others products suggested and will keep you posted as we add more.
thank you,
Jill
