Ive never skipped a grooming when I go out to the barn, I just love it! Its what I wanted to do, and still do really.

Anyways, I curry, hard brush, soft brush. Brush mane and tail, pick feet, and brush face every time I go out to see Rodeo(which is everyday).

After Im done with him, I bring him back to the barn, and take a hard brush and get all the dirt, and dust off, and pick his feet again. LOL

But that's just me, like I said, I LOVE grooming!!

Probably at least 1/2 hour, though my friends used to tease me when we were going out for a trail ride.
"We're going for a hack, not to a show!" I take pride in my horse's appearance. :)

Some times 5 minutes and some times 3 hours. It really depends. If she is really nasty I just give her a bath. :P

I ALWAYS fully groom my horse. Not the tail everyday, but at LEAST twice a week. I cannot stand dirty horses lol, or at least dirty while I ride. Right now as he's shedding, it goes: shedding blade, rubber curry, and semi hard brush. In the summer: rubber curry, semi hard brush, soft finishing brush, and hooves all year of course, then the mane, and most likely tail. If his tail is really dirty, I wait until it is warm enough to wash it, as it is super hard, and more likely to break hairs if I try and brush it. I love the bonding time, plus I'm weird, and I love to see the hair/mud coming off of him haha. I bring my friends horse in sometimes and brush him when he's shedding, it's so fun to me haha. I never really have time constraints, and I go out every day to at least feed, so even if I don't ride I have time to brush because I can do it while he eats. He's always super shiny from all of it, even in winter. I think it takes me about 20-25 mins in all, but when he starts shedding some days I will go out and spend hours currying lol.

Oh and I forgot the after lol. In the winter I wait until he's dry and curry then stiff brush. And in the summer I mostly just spray him off with warm water. It gets pretty hot and I guess he just sweats easily.
