I find that in the winter I have to use natural brushes, as the synthetic tend to give my horse and I static shocks. The natural brushes tend to do this much less if at all.

I do have both, but like the natural better for this reason and I find them easy to keep clean.

When I bought my horse I upgraded from my synthetic brushes that came as a grooming tote set to natural brushes I picked out individually. I definitely like the natural brushes more, but I'm not sure how much of it is that the brushes are just better quality to begin with. I haven't used any of the higher quality synthetics to compare against.

I'm a natural gal. I recently read that synthetic brushes actually attract dirt, so you're basically just redistributing the dirt as you brush. Since I switched to natural brushes, I'm finding my horse's coat looking cleaner and more shine which suggests the oils in his skin are benefiting too.

The synthetic brushes can be very static so the dirt just ends up back in the coat or you give the horse a shock.

For me natural bristle brushes win hands down over synthetic

Thanks you all! I really appreciate your input. I've decided to go with the natural brushes, even though they cost a little more.

Thanks again!
