    Brushing horses at a lesson

    When I arrive for my lesson, I'm supposed to brush the horse that I am riding before I tack up. But the problem is, the brushes are always really dirty, and I don't feel like I am actually removing much dirt. Is there a way to quickly clean the brush? Does anyone else have lessons where the brushes are always dirty?

    Curry combs are great for cleaning other brushes as are grates, say between stalls? Scrub the brush against it and dust and hair will fly off.

    Yep, just take a metal currycomb and give the brush bristles a scrape. Another way to get dry dirt buildup out of the brush is to give it a brisk thump, bristles down, on a cement floor. Some people scrape the bristles over a corner, like on a doorway or tie post, but that just puts the dust into the air - not the best thing for people and animals to be breathing.

    Curry combs or shedding rakes I find work best. :3 x3
