Are these worth it?

Wash Wand @ Kyhorse.com

Or is there something else out there that's better?

it looks interesting, though I don't see how well it would work on the neck and legs... it seems good for just the belly and rump.

Looks a bit awkward to use on certain parts of the horse. Maybe buy it and let us all know how it works!

i've used one and they work great. If the water pressure is high enough the legs are no problem. My horse is 17.1 hands tall so it really helps get direct water on his neck and hip without soaking my neighbors, lol

I almost bought one and wish I had now
One of our local feed/supply stores was moving locations and had them cheap as chips. Should have snapped it up....darn

These area actually really good for horses that are a little scared of the sound of loud water. Plus, they are very helpful with tall horses.

It would depend on the water pressure. I would think it would be great to reduce bath time.

I have one of those and love it. Has a knob to control water pressure and I can imagine it would be good for spooky horses. I've found it really cuts down on wetting/rinsing time. Also, there's less splashing of water, so you get less on your clothes and its nice around the horses face.
