Some of the most relaxing and enjoyable time I spend with my horse is while I am grooming her. It's an activity we both enjoy. She stands quietly with her eyes half closed, absorbing the attention while I try to bring a mirror shine to her coat. Grooming is more than just a relaxing activity; it's a good time to check for skin or hoof problems or injuries. Grooming is an absolute must before saddling up. Grit left under the saddle or girth area can chafe and cause painful sores. Grooming Your Horse
gives you simple step-by-step instructions for a basic grooming routine that will help your horse stay healthy and comfortable.
