My everyday kit is quite sparse, but it works wonders.

In it I have:
Shedding blade - fabulous for removing winter coat without tearing the hair.
Soft body brush
Plastic, sarvis curry comb - great for removing mud and loose hair
Mane and tail brush

My show kit is an entirely different kettle of fish and I wont bore you with all the gear in it

A towel. Yeah of course you have your curry and bristle brushes, hoof pick and comb. But a towel picks up those last bits of dirt that brushes don't. And always make the coat look good.

I would say yes, get the things you need, but if you are not comfratable w/ your brushes, I think you should get them!
Here is what you need

-rubber curry
-hard brush ( body)
-soft brush (legs, face)
-hoof pick ( pref. W/ a small brush on it)
-mane and tail brush ( you can even use a pple hair brush!! Haha


If you have any questions on grooming feel free to pm me!

and there are always brushing aids, like show sheen that make the coat really shiny and detangle the mane and tail, but find one without silicone, because it dries out the hair!


( sorry to make two posts!)

silicone doesn't dry out the hair, what it actually does is coat the hair with a fine silicone layer not allowing the natural oils on the skin to absourb into the cuticle of the hair shaft. If you wash you horse with a demineralising shampoo and then condition after using a silicone based product, you will not see the apparent "drying" of the hair that would occur if you leave the product on The hair appears "dry" because the natural shine is masked by the silicone that has gone dull after a few days of being on your horse.

This is a fact proved by scientific research not just my opinion

the same thing that happens when you use pantene on your own hair :)

My husband got a new sweat scraper as a gift and I think it is just the greatest thing. Its curved and has the rubber squeegy on one side and little teeth on the other. Really great after a bath the water doesn't run down your arm like with the straight scrapers.

My rubber curry comb or soft brush. You can take care of just about anything with them.

I'm a brush fanatic, but I think it is important to have the following:
- a metal curry (really good at getting caked mud off)
- rubber curry (need it for when they are shedding)
- hard brush (gets left over dirt off body and legs)
- medium brush
- soft brush
- hoof pick w/ brush
- mane and tail brush
