There is something so satisfying about taking a mud-caked horse from the field and grooming him until his coat is sleek and shiny. I think my love of grooming began during my halter horse days, where the horse's turnout was paramount.
For the halter horses grooming was just as big of a part of their appearance as physical conditioning was, regular grooming kept coats tight and brought those natural oils to the surface.
In the years I've spent around horses I've picked up on smalls tips and products that make grooming an easy and productive practice, that can be use even if you have no interest in showing and just want to have the shiniest pasture ornament on the farm!

More recently I've used it on Lilly's tail, she has never had a very thick tail and I apply it every few days to her dock. I started this just two months ago and I would guess it has grown at least 3 inches and the top is getting thicker! The only downfall is this stuff smells like a barbecue but they do have a new formula that is much better!. Plus, the price I linked above from Amazon is way too good to pass up!
These are just a handful of our favorites, I'll be adding more posts with products I find and really enjoy. If you have a favorite that I should check out please let me know by leaving a comment below!
