Grooming Kit Favorites

I'd like to build up my grooming kit and what better time than Christmas

What are your favorite grooming tools? Bonus points if you post a link.

Thanks!

A face brush! I find that regular sized brushes are uncomfortable to use on the horse's face, both for me and the horse. These specialized brushes come in a smaller size with softer bristles so I can really get in their face without causing any discomfort.

Here is just one example of the brush but there are many out there you can look at.

Let me preface my post with a fact about myself: I am a grooming-tool snob and I love Haas brushes! My oldest one is over 30 years old and its bristles are still like new.

I have a whole assortment of them, but The Diva finishing brush is my absolute favorite! It gives that last finishing touch and my mare (who used to hate grooming), sticks her head out the second she sees this brush.

My horse dislikes bushes! Seems odd to me, but she very clearly prefers a rubber curry. I bought her a mud brush which *I* love, but she doesn't.

This cheap curry brush is my favorite tool: https://www.statelinetack.com/item/rubber-curry/BJI17/

And for her mane/tail, just a plain plastic brush does the trick. https://www.statelinetack.com/item/c...brush/E015302/

Here's the mud brush - it is excellent. If your horse likes brushes I would recommend it: https://www.statelinetack.com/item/c...d-brush/BJH58/

I second Haas brushes. I love the schimmel brush for my greys!

Another Haas brush fan here! My boys might get a new one in each of their stockings for Christmas. I have a Schimmel and a softer one for finishing. They are worth the money and I plan on adding to my collection.

Both my fellas appreciate grooming gloves much more than curry combs.

A really sturdy hoof pick -- not the $2 job -- is invaluable with Cedar's special wedge/bar shoes.

Haas brushes. I have a Schimmel and it's by far the best brush I've ever used. As my other brushes give up the ghost, I'll be replacing them with Haas.

My pastured 24/7, living outside in the sun and mud and dust black horse with his bug-irritated, winter-coat-half-grown-in looked like a million bucks with a quick going-over with that brush.
