Hey everyone...after reading one thread on this forum about BUYING a grooming kit...I brainstormed!!!Why not make a homemade one?With miscellanious(Sorry about my spelling,my screens a little dark!lol.)grooming equiptment.So...heres the point...what would YOU put in yours?
Mine has all if the above plus, scissors, vet wrap and cowboy magic detangler for putting up tails and keeping manes soft, and equine sunscreen, people sunscreen, Polo wraps, and splint boots. Posted via Mobile Device
I have a bunch of random stuff from different times....
Mane puller (the metal comb with a hook on the end)
(and in the mail..)
Sweat scraper (maybe if I get enough stuff for spring it will come faster!)
Shampoo and Detangling chemicals (although those are going in a bucket)
And of course the treats, always important to keep a few around in case I forget to get some out of my tack box. It really helps him tolerate the earplugs and stuff like that.

I didn't know people actually bought grooming kits that were already put together. I just got a new brush every time I went to a store that had horse grooming supplies.
I have one of those bathing brushes that can be hooked up to a hose, which works wonders compared to a curry comb. I have probably about five hoof picks, for all two of my horses. XD I get many supplies as gifts. I have sissors, dematting combs and soft brushes to brush shedding hair away aswell as dirt. Nothing to fancy, really. Just whatever I find that's helpful. I don't show horses, so I don't dress them up to much. (But I do have some horse-safe paint that I use to color my horses all indian-horse like. X3) I'm sure I have a crapload of other brushes, I just can't remember them. Plus I have like five of the same of alot of brushes just as gifts from people.
Well I was always aware of them but didnt actually buy one till last year it was an oster one and to be honest out of 5 brushes and a hoof pick I only ever use 2 of the brushes as I don't like the rest and don't like the hoof pick. I think the method of buyin what you need as you need / see it is always better ... worked out cheaper for me
I was given a pre-made grooming kit when I first got my horse. Had a sponge, curry comb, plastic brush and a hoof pick in it. I use it as my bathing kit now lol.
My current kit has:
A slick n' Easy
A mane and tail brush
A big medium hardness brush
A soft body brush
A hard body brush
A hoof pick with a brush on the opposite side
A lamb mitt
A curry comb
If you show, the lamb mitts are excellent, they really lift the dirt and make them shiny looking. I love my long bristled big medium brush, prefect for getting off the initiate muck and dirt. A slick n' easy I also always welcome in my kit, perfect for lifting dirt, removing bot eggs and taking off the winter coat.
