How to groom shedding coat

Hello to all,
I have a paint that is shedding his coat from winter. Any ideas what type of
brush to use? Thank you all.

I use a curry comb. Rub circles. Then brush with a stiff brush. Then use a slick and easy.

Shedding blade works better, if your horse has tough enough skin. Some are a bit too thin skinned, but this is definitely the quickest way, and gets the least in your face.

The sleekEz is by far the best shedding tool I have EVER used! Everyone at the barn is always borrowing it from me this time of year, seriously it's amazing! lol

I have been using a hacksaw blade & it works awesome! I also use a furminator and it works pretty darn good to.

I use a curry, stiff brush, then finishing brush - probably got 5 lbs of hair off of her this past few days after a long winter! She's a sorrel, so when all is done, she's usually shining like a copper penny :)

Wow!! That was incredible- and with Vivaldi's "The Four Seasons", that was the perfect demonstration! :)
