solo comb

Just looking for comments on this comb. My horse has a really thick mane and while I'm tempted to let it just grow out, I figure I better not...

SoloComb - Grooming Tools from SmartPak Equine


Does it work?

Your horse's mane is like my horse's, thick and grows fast. Try those both out & let me know which is best. I will have to purchase them from someplace else however, Smartpak does not ship to Canada, boo them! Like you, I was tempted not to pull the mane and band it long for shows & do a running braid for english, but I dunno yet...

Yes the solo combs do work. I've used it before on my gelding with a thick mane. Just have to do a bit at a time.

I bought the solocomb a while back to use on my horses very thick mane. It worked for a few months until the blue lever stopped working. Every time I pushed it down it got stuck inside the body of the comb. I think it did a good job while it lasted though.

I personally find these to work a lot better!!

The razor blade goes in the middle and this works the same way. Helps give the mane a more blended look.
