Washing equipment for horses: from sponges to scrapers
The majority of horses love being bathed, and though it’s a process that takes time and effort for the groomer, the results are worth it. A clean horse with a shiny, healthy coat is a happy one. According to bathing your horse once a week is more than enough.
With this frequency, it’s important that when you do wash your horse, the quality of the equipment will really count. Putting together a kit with portable horse washing equipment will make the job a whole lot easier too. Look for shampoos and conditioners that won’t strip away the natural oils of the coat or leave the hair porous and dry. A horse wash mitt, such as Roma’s Microfibre Wash Mitt, is a perfect for washing and also doubles as an applicator mitt for fly spray, medication or other grooming products. It fits snugly onto the hand like a glove too.
What to look for when choosing a horse sweat scraper
Once you’ve lathered up your horse, applying the soapy shampoo solution to the entire coat using the horse sponge brush, you can use the horse sweat scraper to remove the excess moisture, water and washing products from the coat. Never use the horse sweat scraper on your horse’s face.
Here at Horseland we have a wide range of horse sweat scrapers from some of the leading manufacturers of equine products. The range from Roma comes in bright colours that will stand out in a grooming kit, and some even come with sparkling crystal embellishments that bring a touch of glamour to the job of horse washing, or a leather handle that will age handsomely over time and also assists the groomer with a slip-proof grip.
