Grooming Products to Help Get Ready for Show Season
By: Stacy Bromley Cheetham, MPA
We all know the feeling of coming out of the winter months and looking in the mirror, wondering how on earth we are ever going to be ready for beach season. Have you ever thought that maybe your horse feels the same way come horse show season? Horse Tack Co. is here to help you get your horse back into show ring shape with innovative and effective grooming products. When you are ready to stock up, be sure to save 15% off your order by using the promo code “LoveTheRide” upon checkout, all-the-time and anytime.
The first step is to give your horse a proper bath. Of course, you’ll want to lather your horse up with something that smells nice and cleans thoroughly. Equiderma Neem Shampoo is a great product because not only does it thoroughly clean and smell pretty, but it also actually rinses clean and as another big benefit, inhibits fungal growth through regular use. After a good scrubbing a dose of Clear Choice Detangler and Moisturizer is key for making your horse “show” shiny as well as repeling dirt and dust. A great 3-in-1 tool that comes in handy is the Sweat Scraper Shedder. This multi-purpose item functions not only as a sweat scraper, but also a saddle stain remover and a shedding blade.
Speaking of shine, let’s talk about grooming tools. The Nifty Horse Brush is great for removing caked on mud and grit and the Soft Horse Grooming Brush for finishing and polish. For manes and tails, the TailWrap Paddle Brush is great because it holds up well, does a good job and is easy on your hand during a lengthy grooming session. For a curry comb, try the new Flexible Hand Finger Jelly Curry– it comes in a bunch of colors, and in both kids and adult sizes.
As the saying goes, no horse, no hoof! There are a lot of hoof picks on the market, if you’re looking for a pretty hoof pick for the job, check out the Fancy Engraved Hoof Pick– this tool is both functional and will look good in your groom box. A relatively new hoof care item on the market worth a look for its multi-use capabilities is the Ecohoof Pink Horse Hoof Clay. This all-natural product can be used as a hoof packing, poultice and is also great for rubs and skin abrasions.
Getting ready for the show ring is no easy task, but with a good routine and the right grooming products from Horse Tack Co., you already have a leg up on the competition! As a bonus, spending time grooming your horse is a great way for you to build an even stronger bond.
