Over the years from working-student gigs, over a decade of competing in the hunters to eventing, and now so many grey horses later I’ve accumulated some must have’s in my grooming bag.
This conditioner is magic and so great for the coat. We used this daily when I worked in Middleburg.
I like to have a good tail-conditioner. I don’t mind show-sheen which is a quick detangler, but daily use can dry-out the coat, so I like a healthy conditioner that doesn’t cause later breakage. I put this on my Christmas list this year.
Hoof Oil wise, this is my fan-favorite. Farrier’s Fix is a great formula for every-day, and I can use right before the horse enter’s the ring! This product can be used on the soles against thrush, and is a great moisturizer that still lets the hoof breathe.
So I have two grey ponies, and this is my fail-safe last minute “white touch-up” of course. But, I also like to use baby powder under boots or sweaty regions to prevent rubs. The baby powder can soak up excess moisture. (Hand raised, that I’ve also used as a quick dry shampoo!)
So, there is nothing that will benefit more than quality and daily grooming. Brush wise, I don’t have many expensive or pricey brushes. I keep an average size curry comb, a few hard brushes, and then I have my really fine soft-brush and a fleece mitten. I love my mitten to rub down remaining dust. I think it picks up a touch more dust than your towel or soft brush. I’ve linked one mitt above the , Abetta Fleece Applicator Mitt – Natural .
