I use metal curries when I have dried mud, espeically when I haven't groomed for awhile in the winter, like when I groomed all 3 last weekend. It's a good start on a muddy mane and tail, then you finish with another brush and a mane and tail comb.
IF the mud is mixed with manure you'll fight your horse using a metal curry. Metal curries used to be used all over the place. My Arab, "Corporal" hated them, so I only used rubber curries on him. NONE of my horses ever liked the big, massaging curries. I discovered early on that all of my horses prefered to have the faces groomed with pebble gloves, so I used that all of the time.
