Before and after every ride, even every ground work session. The before grooming gets the hair laid down and any bits of bedding or mud off to keep from causing sores under the tack. The after grooming is the important one for me. The body is warm and the pores are open and allows for a really deep cleaning. The hairs are released for easier shedding out as well.

Yes I groom them after I ride. In the summer I give them a good quick brushing and then go spray them off.

I groom before and after riding. Even on days that I'm not riding, I try to get them all looking at least half-way presentable.

I love grooming my horse- he loves the attention and I think he likes the way it "massages" him!

I always hose down after if they sweat real bad. But in the summer I always groom after.
