Maintaining your horse’s coat and hoof health is important for both their appearance and their overall well-being! It is not uncommon to see horses grooming each other in the turnout. So by grooming your horse, you are not only keeping them happy and healthy, you are also building a better relationship with your horse. If you are a new horse owner or recently added a new horse to the family, grooming is great for bonding with your horse early on.
There are a wide variety of horse grooming supplies, each with its own designated purpose. Curry combs work to get closer to the horse’s skin, removing dirt and debris that if left unchecked can cause issues for your horse’s skin health. Regular grooming and bathing also increase blood flow and circulation to your horse’s skin, which can help them fight off infections while also keeping their coats soft and shiny. Bathing supplies like mitts and sponges are affordable and are great at keeping your horse’s coat looking healthy and clean!
Another important aspect of horse grooming is maintaining your horse’s hooves. Hoof picks are designed to dig away dirt and debris that can get caught in between the frog and sole of your horse’s hoof. If left unchecked, debris can build up over time which can lead to discomfort and infections. You should clean your horse’s hooves every few days in order to prevent this!
