I’ve been meaning to do this for a while after seeing a few others doing the same in result of a post by Laura – The Horse Talker.
Of course I couldn’t be normal & just have 1 grooming kit, so here’s what’s in all of mine!
First up is my everyday grooming kit, this one lives in the Tack Room & is what I use from day to day.

My Everyday Grooming Kit

It contains:
1 – Two Body Brushes
2 – Two Zoom Grooms (great for getting off loose hairs & mud on winter coats)
3 – Small brush I use to scrub soles of feet
4 – Two sponges, 1 for face & 1 for nether regions
5 – Mane & Tail Spray (sometimes this is replaced by baby oil)
6 – Two Hoof Oil brushes
7 – Hoof Oil
8 – Sweat Scraper
9 – Plaitting Bands
10 – Dandy Brush
11 – Botanica Cream (brilliant for cuts & scrapes etc)
12 – Plastic Curry Comb
13 – Pulling Comb
15 – Tail Brush
16 – Rubber Curry Comb
17 – Old Dandy Brush for scrubbing hooves
18 – The box it all goes into.
Just realised that the hoof pick has gone walkabout, but there’s normally one in there too!

Then I have my travel kit which lives in the back of the jeep, so I always have a few bits & bobs to hand when we’re out & about.
