A Curry Comb is usually in an oval or circular shape and is made out of thick rubber and sometimes plastic. Use a curry comb in a circular motion along the body but stay away from the more sensitive areas (lower legs and face). A curry comb will bring up and loose hair and dirt from the bottom of the coat to the top. It also helps circulation in muscles.
A Dandy brush is also called a hard brush. They have long thick/rough bristles. Use the dandy brush in a flicking motion. Its use is to get out any hair or dirt that was brought up by the curry comb. It will also loosen dirt and hair sometimes. You can use it anywhere except the face.
A body brush is also known as a soft brush. It has shorter and softer bristles. Use the body brush in a stroking motion or flicking motion. It is used to take off any extra hair and dirt left by the dandy brush. It will also give your horses coat a little shine. You can use this brush anywhere including the face.
