Best Puling Comb?

I want to get one of those combs to help me pull the mane, but I've never used one before. How do they work, and which ones do you all use, and how do you like it?

Thanks,
- Sorrel

I have The Mane Puller - Grooming Tools from SmartPak Equine but I don't personally like it. I just bought a metal pulling comb because the way I see it, if it aint broke, don't fix it.

I tired the model that is linked above and I found it to be useless. Totally not worth buying.

I'd stick with a regular old pulling comb, and ignore the gimicks of these new ones.

As far as how they work, brush out the mane, taking small sections at a time (I prefer half inch or a little over), tease the excess back, wrap it around the comb, and in one quick pull, you have your mane. Brush the teased part out, and grab the next section.

My horse has no problem with pulling, and just stands there asleap, but some are more sensitive and will fuss. It's best if you pull in small, spread out sessions, and do it after your horse has been excercised. When they're warmer, the pores open up, making it easier to pull.

As said by dejavu :) that's pretty much what I use :) but has a little handle (hoofpick thingee) makes it easier to hold :)

I use the Roma pulling comb, works excellent! And has a nice wooden handle for a easy grip!

A simple metal comb will work fine.

FINGERS work just as well. Simply grab a few long hairs with index finger and thumb of the left hand, use the index finger and thumb of right hand to push up the the shorter hairs, twist the long hairs around your finger and quickly pull.
Be careful to only take a few hairs at a time.

I also use the Roma brush with the wooden handle. Old school, works great. Don't need anything fancy
