No personal experience, but I know several people who really like the "join up" that Monty does.
I like the t-touch, although I only read an article about it. I was already sort of doing it. I give Christy a nice massage every time I groom her, and after every ride. I know her "special places," where she gets tight, and where it just feels great... It relaxes her especially after a ride, and I think makes her feel much better. Besides, it is great as a bonding exercise... You are truly grooming them, and they love it!
