Do you use the soft or hard bristled brush after the curry?
Sorry, lame question I know! I took grooming lessons a few months before I got a horse and at the barn I was at they never really let me groom. So, now I've got a horse and after I use the curry I either grab the soft bristled brush or the hard one, but I forgot which is the "official" one. So, which one do you use afterwards?
Most people use the hard brush before the soft brush, although it doesn't really matter. The hard brush gets most of the hair and dirt off, and the soft brush takes off the rest and smooths the coat. But it's really not a big deal... they'll be clean either way.
Curry then hard brush then soft brush.
The curry loosens everything, the hard brush sweeps most away, the soft brush gets any residual dust and helps shine the coat.
I don't always use a hard brush, but when I do I'll use it first, then soft brush, then curry, then soft brush again. Or hard brush, curry, soft brush. Starlite has got some serious dusty issues and almost never looks like shes been brushed LOL
I use curry, then hard, then shedding blade (right now) then soft :)
Depends on how dirty they are for me. If they are really dirty, I'll use the hard brush, otherwise I'll just dust them off with the soft one.
hard then soft.
I was always taught that you curry, hard brush, and then soft brush, and then just for the extra shine, use a damp rag, that wasnt always though, but thats just me :)
i use the curry then the soft brush, i never use the hard brush bc gypsy doesnt like it
I go in this order:
1.) Shedding Blade (If Needed)
3.) Plastic Curry
4.) Hard Brush
5.) Soft Brush
