I love grooming. Its calming, and its a great thing to do when you are trying to teach your horse patience. I spend a lot of time just grooming my Arabian mare, as she does still get a little bit frustrated when I ask her to stand for more than say 15 minutes, so I groom her for maybe 30-45 minutes, then turn her out, sometimes I'll get on her, and then I take her back up and groom her for another 20 minutes or so. I have everyone at the stables amazed, cause she ground ties like a dream, which apparently for a 5 year old Arabian is not easy. She absolutely loves to be brushed, and it gives me a great opportunity to really examine every inch of her, and make sure that she doesn't have any hidden injuries. I used to do a lot of grooming with my horses during the summer back in high school when I had plenty of time on my hands, and just wanted to hang out with my horse.
