Buying a complete grooming kit is a great place to start when you get a new horse, to give as a gift, for travelling, or just an easy way to put together a smart co-ordinated kit. Many come in a bag or box so that you can keep all the items organised and together. If you’re intending to carry your new kit around with you, make sure the bag is sturdy, has a good handle and that there is additional space for extra items, such as coat spray or hoof oil.
Grooming kits vary in contents, but in the best grooming kits for horses you’d expect to see the majority of the following items: dandy brush, body brush, face brush, rubber currycomb, hoof pick and mane comb. You may also find a sweat scraper, hoof oil brush, sponge or plastic currycomb.
Here’s a selection of the best grooming kits for horses to take a look at…
