I actually quite like using the weird looking shedding blocks that people use for bot fly eggs. It actually gets a lot of hair out! My horse sheds like crazy, so I use a cheap furminator type tool as well, a plastic and rubber curry, a metal shedding blade, and the shedding block (usually a combination of these). Also, if it's warm enough, a nice bath could help too!
I clip mine. It's great. Sure they still shed, but the hair is so short you barely notice it.
Not to mention it is quicker to dry my horses off after work in winter so they don't stand around cold with damp coats under their rugs.
Lots of curry use. Rubber, metal, rubber, metal. Then when my arms get exhausted I body brush and go again later. If its warm enough ill add a bath and use a stiff brush and towel while the horse is still wet, seems to help.
I use a metal curry and a metal shedding blade. Works well and the hair generally comes off clumped together so there is minimal "flight" LOL.
For my more sensitive horses that don't tolerate the metal curry well, I don't really do much actual grooming with them. If I need to ride them, I use a regular brush to knock the dust off but leave the shedding hair alone. They'll roll it all off eventually.
Some of my horses really enjoy the metal curry though. They really lean into it and get the "Oh, yeah" face going LOL.
