Exactly that...a pulling comb...a little metal (or aluminum) comb...I like the ones with a handle for your hand to fit on...go to a tack shop and tell them you are looking for a puling comb...they will lead you in the right direction...Good luck!

Oh I have one of those. Just curious if anyone had used that other kind.. I can't think of what it's called but it's like $20?

You're probably thinking of the Grooma Mane Master or mane combs that have something like a razor blade built in. The Mane Master is $34.00. I've never used one, but I think that it might not be worth it for the price- there are cheaper combs that you can use that probably get the job done just as well. I've just been using a normal aluminum pulling comb.

Yeh I think you're right. I saw something similar for about $5 on ebay. I might just stick with my comb LOL!!!

The solo-comb looks great, you just brush the comb down to the length you want pull the handle thing and it chops it without it looking ragged or un-natural

Thining shears :) works wonders and less stress for you and the horse!

The best thing that works for me is a metal dog flea comb. It's perfect and easy to pull hair with.

The metal horse combs are too cumbersome for me.

Just a pulling comb and a brush. :) If it's way long I'll start with scissors then thin and even it out by pulling.
