Smile Grooming Order??

What order do you guys groom your horses in? Not that I don't know how, just wondering if I'm different from everyone else. Thanks for your time

Depends on what I grab out of the bag first. Sometimes it's their mane and tail first. Sometimes it's their body first. Usually the hooves are last because the hoof pick ends up on the bottom of the bag.

My order is: Rubber curry comb, stiff brush, soft brush, hoof pick.

Lol - front to back and top to bottom, using whatever I need at the time and depending on whether she has rolled in the mud!

This is my routine :))

-Curry comb
-Stiff body brush
-Soft body brush
-Hooves

I usually don't brush the mane and tail if I'm just going to ride but the odd time I will.

Thanks for your answers, guys
Wow, I do things weird or something, I guess
I always do their hooves first. I like to get what I think is the hardest part of grooming out of the way as quick as possible. Plus I'm not the best at remembering things sometimes - I freak myself out imagining what could happen if I forgot to pick his hooves.
I've been riding this one paint gelding alot lately - he's white &black, so at this point I scrub all of the stains of god-knows-what out of him that he so convieniently acquired that night, sleeping on poo or something
Then I use a rubber curry comb.
Next a soft brush.
And then a stiff brush.
And if there's shavings in his mane &tail, it usually bugs me for a bit before I pick as much as I can out. Otherwise I just leave them alone as long as they're not severely tangled or something.

Depends what has just happened...
Usually I just curry, check mane/tail, stiff then soft brush, and hooves.

Always curry first. It gets things loosened up. Then stiff brush, then medium brush, then finishing brush or one of those rags that attracts dust.

First off- When I thought I was going to register my horse, his name was going to be Sweet Serendipity. So your username keeps throwing me off, LOL.


Secondly, I pick feet. Then I curry. That's usually it.
Mane and tail brush if I feel like its needed and we're in no rush. If I feel thorough I'll brush his face or rub some baby oil into the base of his mane and tail, or use a stiff brush on his body. Right now, though, with the way the wet weather has hit us, I'm spending a lot of time with a bucket of water and an old stiff brush and scrubbing the hell out of his feet and legs. No mud fever for me this year!
