I have one of those hand shaped mitts with the little nubs on both sides for my sensitive TB mare. She also likes those metal shedder blades/sweat scraper things. Something I've noticed too is that if you continually do big strokes in the downward direction they do better than if you curry vigorously in a small circle. But that's just what I've noticed on sensitive horses.

I have a sensitive horse too, all I use is a soft curry brush and a lot of our other brushes are nice and soft.

My guy's an Oldenburg/TB - and I think the TB in him has sensitive skin lol so he HATES grooming.... the only thing he enjoys is the hard curries or his favourite is actually an old human hair brush! It goes against logic - you'd think that softer would be better - but he likes 'scratches' as opposed to brushes. I use a little 'shedding flower' I bought at a show once that he likes too - it's got more like teeth than bristles and his upper lip starts squirming. But as soon as you use the dandy brush the ears go back and he starts to fidget. Weird, but I just go with what he likes and make the 'icky' part as quick as possible. :P
