    I use the same brushes on my horses because I know when they were wormed, vaccinated etc. But I would never use my brushes on another horse or vice versa. I've accumulated an obscene quantity of brushes over the years so each horse has their own is super sensitive so he gets the uber soft one and the other has intense hair that needs a thick brush so.

    I have my own set of brushes for Image, a set of brushes for the horses at my barn for when I ride them, and another set of brushes for the barn that I ride my previous trainer's pony at. I keep Image really clean so I don't want to get his brushes dirty by using them on horses that aren't as clean, haha (I'm picky). And my previous barn where pony is at has a flesh eating fungus going around so I don't want to use that barn's brushes on her because I don't want her to get it, but I also don't want to share brushes between barns because I don't want to spread the fungus to my barn either (I also use different saddle pads, polo wraps, boots, etc at this barn).

    When I was showing, my sister and I used different brushes because my sister's horse was a grey and mine was a sorrel and both hair colours showed up quite vividly on the other horse. Now though, I don't think it matters unless you know for a fact one horse has a skin condition or other transmittable disease.

    I never share or use anyone's brushes other than my own. I learned my lesson when I used a friends and then we had a mange epidemic... -.-

    If you must use other brushes than your own, disinfect them first!

    My horses share brushes. I clean them when they get dirty, and I only have two horses anyway.
    I know sometimes barns have "community brushes" for lessons and riders that don't have their own horse. The places I know that have this wash their brushes once every two months, and obviously check for infections and stuff on a daily basis. It's pretty safe.
