Oh good I think I'm going to get one! I'm very short only 4'11" so pretty much all horses are tall to me and I have a Percheron so I think this will be handy ;) Thanks for the reviews on them!

I have one. Pretty awesome!!! I must warn you thought be carefull when opening the valve to spray the water. If you have really good water pressure and aren't holding on to the handle it can wack you in the face. Happened to a friend of mine. It was funny after the fact, but she had a nice black eye for a little while.

Couldn't you just use a sweatscraper and a hose at the same time for the same effect?

Honestly, the scraping action is ok, but that's not why I like it: you get more water off with a dry scraper or your hand. What I find nice is that it gets really deep into the coat and gets the suds right out. Keeps you from rinsing, running your hand over the coat, finding more suds, and then saying naughty words, like I do:P Also thoroughly soaks a really wide area very quickly

Someone at my barn has one I think- she loves it. I've never used it personally though, although it looks pretty cool. I should get one myself. But yeah, it looks like it's mostly good for the stomach & back?

Ride more, worry less.
