The competitive season for numerous disciplines is well underway and I thought I’d share my favourite/most needed products to get my horses gleaming and catching everyone’s eyes.
I love using the solocomb to pull my horse’s mane, it’s very simple to use and is totally pain and hassle free for the horses. It produces an equal length although is pretty time consuming!
If you are in need of a brush for cleaning EVERYTHING this is the one… it is such good quality and is much bigger than most body brushes. It is also great at creating quarter marks.
Everyone loves a bit of shine… right?! I love keeping my horses coats in a healthy condition and for the added shine on show days I rely on NAF shiny coat spray or the Carr, Day&Martin coat shine conditioner.
This is a game changer in terms of cleaning greys! I have never seen shampoo more effective at removing every possible stain and leaving your horse glowing. They also do a lavender shampoo which can work on any colour coat with added insect repellent due to the lavender scent.
Definitely the way to get extra heads turning and the judges loving you is with sparkly clean tack. My personal go to favourites for softening the tack and keeping it moisturised is the NAF sheer luxe leather balsam and the Carr, Day&Martin Neatsfoot compound oil, which makes my tack gleam!
Hoof oil is not only a really important conditioner for horses hooves to stop them getting dry and cracked especially in the summer months but it also creates a polished look in competition. I love the Effol black hoof oil it applies well and lasts and even works on white hooves.
My absolute favourite for wash downs or simply cleaning. The added advantage of the brush around the sponge means sweat and dirt can easily be wiped away without endlessly scrubbing. A MUST buy for everyone, I guarantee you’ll love it!
This is also a pulling comb however I don’t pull my horses mane, but this comb is gives the perfect amount of hair to plait a mane. It’s a must for any travel bag or home grooming kit and retails at £1.65 – bargain!
There’s nothing worse than having a perfectly cleaned tail but it being ruined on the journey ending up a lovely shade of brown… but Premier Equine have produced the perfect must have solution. I love how easy these are, honestly a must buy.
