I usually spend about 30 minutes before a lesson or ride to groom Galina. I use a rubber curry, then hard bristle, then body brush on her coat to make her nice and clean and especially shiny! Then I pick out her hooves and comb her mane and forelock, since they're normally pretty yuck looking when she comes in from the paddock.
I don't do much to her tail normally, cos if you comb it out too much it will thin out. When I do her tail it'll take me another 15-20 minutes or so.
After a ride I'll hose her down, pick out her hooves again, put hoof oil on her hooves, sponge her face to get rid of the bridle marks and give her a quick brush with the body brush. That normally takes me about 20 minutes.
When I've got time though, I'll groom for about an hour or so - I actually love
