    Poll! Grooming

    Just curious about everyones take on grooming after they ride...

    1. I groom my horse again after every ride.
    2. I never groom my horse after I ride.
    3. Only if there is a saddle mark.
    4. I only hose them down afterwards when it's hot and they get sweaty.
    5. Other (comment below)

    I personally almost always groom after I ride unless I am in a hurry.

    I do every time, sometimes it might be a quick job of it but I always give them a once over. If I have time, I am more thorough.

    I'll do it if there's sweat that might dry on him or if there's a saddle mark, but to me the pre-ride grooming is where my attention goes.

    I always groom before my ride, brushing picking etc, mostly cause I put her boots on for every ride.
    Ill hose her if she gets hot, or if she's got excessive poop stains of dirt marks. But if im swingin up bareback for a low key walk around, and theres no marks or sweat, I don't bother grooming after.

    I guess I probably should have mentioned that I just generally assume everyone grooms before they ride first. Lol

    I do it before and after to check for any thing wrong

    I always groom after riding, no matter what. There are times I'm rushed and I just run a curry over him, but it always gets done.

    Always before and after with particular attention the the girth area.

    I groomed my own horse before and after each ride, including the liniment after. I always took my time though, with a few exceptions when it was just quick. I also would hose off if it was a hot day and she was sweaty, in the winter, I just throw a cooler on.
