    At home, just a good brushing to get off surface dust/dirt/mud and a hoof pick. I also pick out shavings/twigs in the tail and wipe the face.

    If I am at a lesson, I do a more thorough groom, but nowhere near a show groom.

    Clinics are groomed like shows, minus braiding maybe.

    LOL that describes me trying to wash here..

    There was a time when my horses were always beautifully groomed and looking good, but that was when I didn't actually ride them, now I ride horses that are clean where anything touches
