Please help with the grooming!

I just need the answer to this groom question.

In what order must these brushes be used to groom a horse properly?
# Dandy brush - soft brush - curry comb
# Curry comb - dandy brush - soft brush
# Curry comb - soft brush - dandy brush

Please help me!

The dandy brush is the harder brush right? O.o different terms.

It would be curry comb, dandy (hard) brush, soft finishing brush. That's how I usually do it.

I'm pretty sure I use mine: Curry-Dandy-Soft. I use the soft one last to make Rose shine and to flick off the last bit of dust.

Curry dandy soft, but I always have a brush in each hand to use to get the dirt and hair out of the brushes every so often

I tend to have the dandy and curry is each hand but always start off with the dandy brush. I will then use the curry comb if needed although generally I don't tend to need it much at all in summer, I need it most of the time in winter however. It is important not to over-use the curry comb too much (particularly on clipped horses) as it can be a bit too harsh on the more sensitive areas I.e face - sometimes a good ol' sponge is the best way to get rid of mud in certain areas.!

I've always used curry-dandy-soft also, because when I took my riding levels I was tested on the "proper' way to groom a horse so I was taught to do it like that and I think it also works best
