  1. Rubber Curry Comb- Use this brush in a circular, massaging motion over your horse's body.  This brush helps to loosen hair and dirt. 

  2. Stiff Dandy Brush-Use this brush after the Rubber Curry Comb.  The Stiff Dandy Brush can be used in short, quick strokes to whisk away the dirt and hair that was loosened with the Rubber Curry.  Do to it's abrasive bristles, this brush is generally not used on the horse's face or below the knee or hock. 

  3. Soft Brush- Use this brush on your horse's face and sensitive areas.  The Soft Brush can be used across the entire body of the horse as well to smooth hair and polish the coat.

  4. Hoof Pick-  An essential item to help keep your horse sound.

  5. Fly Spray-  Keep your horse's attention on you- not on the flies!  Choose a spray that is not oil based to prevent direct from collecting on your horse's coat.

  6. Braid Bands- Braid bands help keep your horse's mane under control and present a more polished image.

  7. Hair Brush- A human hair brush is a great way to rid your horse's mane and tail or tangles.

  8. Razor-  Use a razor on the day of the show to remove straggly hairs and stubble from the horse's muzzle.

  9. Washcloth-  An everyday washcloth can remove dirt and residue from your horse's face just before you enter the arena.

  10. Show Sheen-  Give your horse an extra glow with show sheen just before you enter the show pen.  Apply sparingly to the saddle area, as it may cause your saddle to slip.  Show Sheen also is a great product to use for getting rid of tangles in your horse's tail or main.
