I definitely think that it does. Like someone said above, to both the horse and groomer. Me personally, It is extremely calming for me when grooming. I can just relax and talk to them, or not talk, whatever.
I think for the horse it helps desensitize them to touching all over their body. I also think that it is kind of a positive reenforcement, so to speak, when they are being brushed, bathed, etc because they just have ;to stand there and be loved on....does all this make sense....it is really early...;)
Man can see what man made from the seat of a car, but you can see what God made by the back of a horse!
