Horse Grooming Hacks to Use All Year Long!
The key to successful stain removal on your horse is to curry it out first. This removes a large portion of the stain, and what remains can be wiped away with a damp towel and maybe a spritz of stain remover or dry shampoo.
When you are giving your horse a bath, put a dollop of shampoo directly onto your grooming glove. Sponges soak up product – which costs you money! The glove delivers shampoo directly to your horse.
After your horse is sudsy and bubbly, remove most of the shampoo with a sweat scraper. This saves water by not needing so much to rinse all of the bubbles away!
If you have lost your sweat scraper, you can use a piece of bailing twine pulled tightly between your hands to do the same job.
Use your grooming gloves to remove any dried clay poultice from your horse’s legs. No need to make a trip to the wash rack!
Make it a point to groom your horse after a ride, also! Loose hair and sweat marks disappear, and your horse gets a nice post exercise massage.
Before you hit the grocery store after the barn, use your grooming gloves to knock shavings and dust from your pants. Stray hairs from all of the grooming also disappear!
When the weather turns cold, wear your grooming gloves to turn sticky and cold faucets on and off. Extra grip without needing to touch anything cold. Also great to wear when filling buckets in the cold!
