Looking for horse brush

My horse is always full of dirt and I can't seem to get the dirt off of her ever no matter what brush I buy. Please Help!

What is your current grooming routine? Knowing how often you are grooming and which brushes you are using in what order would be helpful. You may not need any new brush at all - it's often more an issue of technique.

This is worth the best groom in Kentucky at getting a horse clean. You just have to make sure A) You go easy and desensitize your horse to it; B) You go with the hair; C) Keep the mane and tail securely out of the way. A dust mask doesn't hurt either.

All of our horses LOVE this brush, even though it is used with a loud scary drill. Once it gets going they all stretch out and do the lip thing and cock their legs and just generally act like they are enjoying the super brush. LOVE this thing.

Weird but true - a horse vacuum might get that underlying dust that can't be rinsed off because of the cold... never tried it myself though! Anyone here have experience with a horsey vacuum?? Haha

Vacuums do a wonderful job getting dirt/caked on mud off a horse. It save a lot of time and you end up cleaner in the end as well (no dust brushing off on you)

If you have a shopvac, that would work just fine. They do make "horse" vacuums, but can get pricey and it does the same thing as the shopvac.

We have always used the same routine. Curry in circles, flick dirt off with a stiff bristled brush, and then remove finer dust with a soft bristled brush. If shedding, we add a slick'n'easy grooming stone to remove loose hair and additional dirt. If your problem is just dust too fine to remove, try wiping the horse down with a dryer sheet to reduce static.
