The body brushing stimulates the skin - the use of the banger or whisp causes the horse to tense the muscles which helps build up muscle with no strain on limbs.

Im not sure if Im understanding this thread. I read it twice and the comments made. The post and comments seem not to go together. Am I being dense today lol.

I got from the post that you went to a barn and were allowed to groom a horse for a lady who boarded there. While you were grooming a girl brought in a horse and proceeded to groom it. The girl brushed against the hair and picked the feet wrong according to you. Then you told the lady whose horse you were grooming that she needed to groom her own horse properly and she said thank you. Then you told her of what you saw the other girl do that you didnt like and the lady said she would check it out. Is this all correct so far?

So who showed who up about grooming?
