I groom every time I ride, which is usually 5-6 days a week. And a little brush over after I'm finished (i don't like leaving saddle marks!). I'm not going to lie though, sometimes my grooming sessions are maybe 5 minutes... :roll:

wo, when I got the e-mail that someone replied I was thinking one person, two or three max, but behold, way more! I love grooming horses just about as much as I like riding them so thanks for the input everybody! One more question, besides the curry comb, hard bristle and finishing brush, do you have face brushes, tail brushes, mane brushes...?

I have a face curry and face brush. I also have different hardness of hard brushes. I use the harder one for mud and cleaning the outsides of the hooves, and the softer hard brush for their coat. I also have a mane and tail brush.

I groom every day in the spring/summer and like 1-2 times a week in the fall/winter. I also groom before and after I ride

I am a groom as needed person. In the winter, I groom off what is needed and do feet before a ride. I have all of my horses tails up, so it is just a quick brush over to remove debris and check for ouchies. There are about 5 minute sessions. I also groom at least every other day when they have to have a blanket on.

In the summer, I groom before riding, often hose off after a ride, and spend a lot of time clipping, conditioning, bathing, banding, braiding, polishing, trimming, blanketing and slinkying. :)

Occasionally, I pull them out not to ride, but to groom - I think they really enjoy this time. I also have my new lesson students spend a good part of their lessons learning how to groom, and taking their time to do it.

thanks for the info everone, I love brushes, don't really know why. They are one of the few cheap things about horses (excluding clippers...) which is always nice. Could I get all the brushes I need for under 100$? I have seen many kits available, anybody have experience with those? It just seems too easy and picking out brushes would be fun :)

I'm a grooming fanatic. My horses are groomed for 30 min.-1 hour every day and before and after I ride. We use the cross ties, my horses are only brushed in places with rubber mats, etc.
