Horse Care & Riding : How to Groom a Horse


When grooming a horse, you want to make sure
you have a few basic tools. A curry comb, a hard brush, a soft brush, and a hoof pick.You
can also have a soft curry comb, for their face and legs. The first step, is to use the
curry comb. This is the harder one, and we’re going to use it in circular motions, on the
meaty part of the horse. The next step, is to use the hard brush, and again, this is
going to cover the same areas of the curry comb, and you’re just going to flick the dirt
off the horse. After the hard brush, we’ll use a soft brush, and this is going to cover
the legs, and the face. Then, we’ll go to use the hoof pick, and for the hoof pick,
we’re going to lean against the horse, run the hand down the leg, and lift up, and we’re
going to pick out the dirt, and any other debris that’s found its way there.

  1. This horse has been filming all day, occasionally taking nips telling her its been a long day.This is the way you groom a horse. But you can use the dandy brush and the body brush on the legs. Its up to you wether you want to brush the horse's face or not and wether he will feel comfortable about it.

  2. i need advise. my dad is going to get me something that can be around 300-500 dollars. i really want a horse but i can't have one. should i buy tack with the money, or have lessons? any advise is welcome

  3. @Footphobics01 Well you have to think about it. With 300-500$ you can get a lot of riding lessons (depending on the price range for the lesson). Do you take lessons already? Owning tack IS fun/convenient IF you already have a place to ride. Depending on your age/size you may outgrow a saddle, so it would be a waste of money, espcially if you don't use it. Do you own any grooming tools? That always will come in handy. Do you own a helmet/riding boots? Hope I helped :).

  4. @AnjaC10 i do go like once a month or every two weeks . lessons cost 40$ and i pay for it myself. I HAVE BOOTS BUT THATS IT. What do u think?

  5. Ok your horse is bad why wont u correct it before it gets wors! what happeds if a kid comes buy that kid is gonna get hurt like really people!!!!
