Equestrian equipment to make your horse's coat shine
Grooming kits are an essential piece of equestrian equipment for keeping your horse's coat at its best. As well as keeping it in tip top condition, grooming is a good way of bonding with your horse as horses groom each other as a sign of affection. It also provides a good opportunity to check for any injuries or lumps and bumps that they may have picked up in a field or while out on a hack.
The Stable Kit grooming Kit and Bag is the perfect starter kit with everything your child needs to give their pony a good grooming. The kit includes a mane comb, body brush, hoof oil brush, rubber curry comb, dandy brush, a pair of magic gloves and plaiting bands so your child can practise plaiting their pony's mane until their heart is content. The handy bag to fit everything in also acts as a great way of carrying it all to and from the stable.
Horses love a good roll, especially it seems, when it's really muddy. This can make grooming an absolute nightmare, however, with the StableKit Junior Grooming Kit Box, brushing your horse will never be a chore again. Available in blue or pink, it is the perfect present for horse mad boys and girls.
For adults, the StableKit Stablemate Standard Grooming Kit is a great basic starter grooming kit. With a sturdy box and a handy plastic tray, you can easily keep your grooming tools in good order. With an assortment of wooden brushes, combs and sponges, you'll have your horse gleaming in no time!
Make sure your horse's tack gets just as much attention as your horse's coat by giving it a thorough wash at least once a week and a quick clean after every ride. Don't neglect your horse's boots or girth either as they soon get muddy and this can detract from a well presented horse at shows.
