Learning to groom horses :D

The other day I learned that one of my old school friends now boards her horse at the stables where I ride - another friend from school used to, but now boards closer to her home. Anyway, the first friend heard from the second friend that I want to learn more about looking after horses, not just riding them ... so the next time I'm up at the stables, she's going to start teaching me how to groom her horse, Luca.

Unfortunately, this won't be for a week or more because I leave for a week's holiday in, oh, five or six hours, but I can't wait

Hey, that's great!!! So, do you just take lessons, and go there and they give you a tacked-up horse and then you just hop on and ride, then hand it back? Just wondering, cause I've been riding for years now and all lesson barns I've ridden at make you groom and tack-up the horse, then ride, then un-tack and groom again :P So, I was just wondering-cause that's not what I'm used to . Anyway, that's great that you're going to learn to groom a horse...it's lots of fun. What are you doing in your lessons? How long have you been riding? Let me know how your riding goes, and how it goes learning to groom. What kind of horse is Luca? PM me or reply to this. (If you want to, of course) bye!

I've have 2 horses with very thick manes and tails. Nothing like an Icelandic but I feel your pain I can't imagine what they would would be like after 11 months in the wild. Saros is bad after 2 day!
My Mattie (a horse I sold) I would have to just work it in sections it was so thick.


Claireauriga, grooming is almost as much fun as riding. I think it really helps build a bond with your horse. They really appreciate all that rubbing and scratching.

Hmm. That whole "strapping" part is confusing to me. It just looks like spanking to me. LOL And what if a horse is tender skinned and can't even tolerate a stiff brush?
I'm not stirring debate, I don't think it's abusive or anyting, I just don't see the point and wonder about the high strung horses reactions. Anybody that does that on a regular basis that can fill me in?

Oh that's awesome!!
It always great to know.
When I learned to ride they made us brush our horses, but they where actualy already brushed it was more for the experience or somthing?
But yeah, that's awesome!
