Equipment How Did I Live Without

How did I live without……Super Groomer

Mud, mud, mud, everywhere I look there is mud.

So it might be a slight exaggeration, as I am comfortably sat in the office on my lunch hour. Yet I know when I get home in the dark, greeting me at the gate will be a horse covered in thick clay mud. As a rather sensitive ginger horse he is not exactly thrilled by being cleaned off and the hose pipe is an even less popular option but luckily my mother had the good sense to purchase one of these a few years ago and they really are the business!

Super Grooma Grooming Supplies

They get the mud off without the horse trying to kill you, they are great at doing heads and that annoying spot on the poll that they seem to plaster in mud. They are also pretty handy with stable stains.

They are called Super Groomers and can be found for the bargain price of £6.25. Mine is currently 4 years old and still going strong.

  • I have loads of these, I keep them like hoof picks – hanging everywhere I might need one and one in each tow vehicle too! They are also very good for bathing a sweaty horse, they don’t object like they do with bristles but it gets those stubborn sweat marks out that a sponge doesn’t quite do.

  • I have sworn by these for years!! For getting through thick mud on fluffy coats, to sensitive clipped bits, and those with fussy heads. Mine also loves it being used to itch his face.
