    could I get all the brushes I need for under 100$?
    i would certainly think so. I love picking out brushes because I know what my horse likes and doesnt. My fiance and I did get a little kit when we got our horses. It had a curry, hard and soft brush and a hoof pick, all for about $15 or so. They're not the best, but I have seen far worse.

    Everday, and it depends how dirty he is. It's usally best to pick out their feet, espically before a ride.

    I groom every time I ride, before and after. And sometimes I just groom for the heck of it. Always in the cross's just easiest. Sometimes I'm late for work because I get distracted with grooming for hours.

    Believe it or not, I'm actually not a big brush collector. I really only have 2 Brushes, a main comb, and hoof pick. You'd think with my 6 saddles, 12 Bridles, and countless turnout blankets, I'd add a brush or two to my online shopping carts!

    Who else is starting to shed their winter coats already?? Ughh! My boy started at the very beginning of February!

    I usually groom almost everyday while the horse is feeding

    I usually groom before and after I ride, which is about 5-6 days a week. Also, I make sure his hooves are picked atleast once a day to make sure there are no stones, etc. in his hooves. In the summer I bathe him thoroughly with shampoo and conditioner every 1-2 weeks and then I usually hose him off everytime I ride in the summer because he gets all sweaty. My grooming sessions can range from 10 min to 1 hour it all depends. Although before shows it could take me hours to make him look perfect. Braiding, mane pulling, batheing, getting every last piece of dirt off, etc.

    I have TONS of different kinds of brushes. Lets see I have 3-4 hard brushes I only use 1 so the others are laying around my room somewhere, then 2 soft brushes again I only use one, 3 or so hoof picks, 2 curry combs, a couple mane and tail brushes and combs, etc. Oh and of course I have tons of shampoo, conditioner, show sheen, detangler, hoof polish. I could go on and on.

    Oh ya and I usually always groom in the cross ties unless they're all taken then I just groom him in his stall.

    I groom my horse every time I go to the barn. When I don't ride I tend to clean anywhere from 45 mins to 2 hours. When I do ride I only clean for 20 mins before and I groom afterwards for about 30 mins, but my horse is clipped and blanketed so it isn't too difficult. When I'm in a really big hurry all I do is clean legs, curry comb, brush his mane, tail, and forelock, and vacuum him.

    I love grooming horses, they look so pretty when they are all groomed and braided and such.
