    Might not be a big deal, but for me it is. I've had her since September and haven't been able to bathe her. I followed many hours of watching and reading tutorials on desensitizing out a horse, with very little results. She's pretty stubborn. Then I was able to give her a bath yesterday! How...

    So, I've got an eleven year old gelding who, up until two years ago, never really had any type of training and, two years ago, I, being one of the first to truly work with him, discovered that water hoses can kill horses! Okay, not really. At least, he sees things that way. I know for a fact...

    I've got a stallion that absolutely HATES taking baths... Until the scrubbing comes into play. He's terrified of the hose and I just don't know why. I started out gentle, allowing him to explore the hose himself and get a few good experiences with it on his own. Then, still taking baby steps, I...

  6. Horse Grooming
    (I'm new, so still trying to figure out how everything works, sorry :D) Hello! I have a question about bathing! A few weeks ago, it wasn't very hot yet, and the only part of my pony that was sweaty was the girth line; so I'd just curry out the saddle mark while the sweat dried, then curry that...

    :think: I have two horses, both currently shedding like crazy, and they both HATE bathing. I always use my metal curry comb then the dandy brush on both of them, but it's never enough. I have yet to bathe either of the turds in the last few years because, A, none of my horses have liked baths...

    I thought I would start a thread to see what everyone has in their grooming tote/box. Please let me know if you like a specific brand of something or absolutely hate something else! How many brushes? what brands? Do you have a different bathing tote/box?

    Okay so the downside of having my horse off for a month (due to abscess, I'll show you pics if you want cause its KNARLEY!) is I can't ride. Poo. HOWEVER! Just because I can't get her riding trained for showing doesn't mean I can't practice grooming type stuffs! So I have decided that I am going...
