Grooming is a must to maintain your horse's coat health. A thorough grooming session in a well-lit area is also a perfect time to inspect for blemishes, swelling and any cuts that need tending to. Proper grooming methods promote even oil distribution and deter excessive dirt build up. Naturally occuring oils from the skin form a protective layer over the hair that provides conditioning and water-resistance. Excessive dirt build up cause rubs in areas that see friction such as the withers, back, face and girth area. These areas can be sensitive and most vulnerable to sores. Not to mention, a cleaner horse means less dirt to get on your tack! Browse through brushes, sprays, shampoos and more to start or add to your grooming tote.
