And then they wonder why their horse bites them when they touch them otherwise.

Who are you referring too?

Ok, I knew someone was going to think it's ALL about them and get offended. Can't a girl ever express what's on her mind without getting jumped on? LOL I'm talking about someone I personally know and I don't understand why I'm put on the defensive. If the shoe fits, wear it....by all means I wasn't talking about anyone on here.

I groom paul for 30 minutes before and after riding when i'm rushed for time but in the summer when I don't have to be home at any particular hour, i'll groom for an hour or so. I think grooming helps build that bonding relationship between horse and rider so when I can spend more time doing it, I do. Plus, when I run my hands over him while i'm brushing, I can see if there is anything suspicious going on like bumps or missing hair.

You thought it was someone on here and were trying to start something by asking who it is...is how it rubbed me. I was answering the OP's post.

How do you manage to properly clean and feel over your horse in 5 minutes?

More time than I do riding. Lol Grooming is one of my favorite parts of having horses. Actually, I almost like taking care of my horses more than I enjoy riding them.

Me too!!! I'm at the barn about 5 days a week but ride about twice a week. There is nothing better than a quiet barn all to myself when I can groom as long as I want to!

Agreed. The barn I'm at has an enclosed area around the outdoor ring right beside the barn, and in the summer we groom outside. We just pull the horse from the field or stall, stick em on the grass and groom while they graze. Sometimes though it's more of a mobile groom as the horse walks around looking for better patches of grass. Still, there is nothing like spending a warm sunny afternoon grooming my horse and just relaxing with him. My captain's horse would always want to see and smell what brush you were using next, and once approved you were good to go.
