I can turn horse out as well as anyone and better than most.
I buy individual brushes, all natural fibre.
I like a leather backed body brush, medium to stiff bristles.
Dandy brush (rarely used)
Metal curry for cleaning the brushes.
Rubber curry
Water brush
Hoof pick
A hand towel and a couple of sponges.
Mane comb - I use a handled dog comb.

One of the most vital pieces of equipment I have is a stainless steel mass for removing mud. I just bought six of the round stainless steel pot scourers, unravelled them and then plaited them together. Brilliant and even the most ticklish horse doesn't mind it.

I'd like to see a photo of this, something like this would work wonders I think. My mare seems to like to roll and see how muddy she can get. And I feel like I'm pulling her hair when brushing her to get it off.

I have clay soil, so it clumps and STICKS to my horses. And it is rarely dry here!

The best tool I have for mud is an ancient metal curry comb. The round one with 3 or 4 metal rings on a handle. I swear I have had it for 20 years, and never had a use for it before. It even works on manes.

Oh my, just the thought of having to unravel one of those things sent chills through my body. How on earth do you do that??
