The winter months can feel like an eternity and horse grooming in winter can feel like an uphill struggle. At Renwick & Sons, we share our top 8 reasons to fall in love with grooming your horse at this time of year.
The importance of grooming your horse is not just about getting him clean but also about bonding with your horse. Grooming your horse is time well spent and finding THAT spot he or she loves to be groomed is priceless!
Sometimes life can be really stressful and escaping to the yard to spend time with your equine friend can be hugely therapeutic. Grooming your horse allows you both to relax and spend quality time in each other’s company.
Understand The Benefits
Grooming your horse is important from a health and welfare point of view. Grooming increases blood circulation as well as giving you the perfect opportunity to check your horse over for any lumps, bumps or cuts. Noticing small changes like this early on and treating appropriately could end up saving you a big vets bill in the end.
Escape The Bad Weather
With the weather at its worse, nothing is better than being tucked away in the barn with your horse. Being the dry and listening to your horse munch away at this haynet while the wind is howling and the rain is beating down on the roof is a great way to spend time with your horse.
Colour Me Beautifully
Whether you own a chestnut horse, grey horse or skewbald horse, using the best horse brushes will help you tackle the worst stable stains and mud this winter. Keeping on top of your grooming now means that your horse will be looking smart and shiny until the milder weather allows for a full bath.
Clean Grooming Tools
Grooming your horse with dirty tools is counterproductive; however, our brushes contain anti-bacterial bristles which self-cleanse within a couple of hours after use! So that means less washing for your grooming kit and better (and more hygienic) results for you!
