Black horses create more sebum and oils than the other colors.

1) Coat supplement and color enhancement supplement

2)Having good quality brushes make a huge difference. I love the HAAS black brush set ... it really makes a huge difference in bringing up all the sander and then shining the coat, but you can do a similar job with a good curry, stiff brush, fine dandy- scrape it off every few sweeps and a nice sheepskin rub afterwards.

You need more? My horses love to be rubbed with it, rub them down after rinsing the sweat off, they dry really quick. No rinsing water? Let them dry rub the marks off. Clean horse, roll cloth into a ball and use it like a proper whisp, improving skin and muscle tone. Just want a final polish....good to go.

My grooming kit for the main part has shrunk to my Handson Grooming Gloves and a cactus cloth.


I have heard good things about the HAAS brushes though, a friend with a grey swears by the ‘grey’ brush.

I absolutely love my Haas brushes. My oldest I got over 30 years ago - and used (and washed!) it heavily throughout the years. The backing has lost some of its color, but all the bristles are still like new. My Princess On A Pea (aka diluted chestnut mare ) prefers a softer brush, so I had to get more And now Haas came out with a set in teal

I second the run over with a damp towel. Similarly I dip the brush in a bucket of water and shake it out so it's damp but not dripping then brush. I usually get a few brushes in before I need to dip the brush in again to clean the dust off of it and get it damp again. Depends how dusty the horse is, but I do this as much as I can between baths.

Great info everyone, I appreciate it! Will go online now to get a cactus cloth. Had never heard of these but will jump online now to order one in.

Cheers!
