Use sweat scrapers to make washing your horse a breeze. A sweat scraper wipes off excess water and helps speed up the drying process. By wiping off excess water, you reduce the risk of your horse catching a cold by drying faster. A simple metal scraper does the job, or choose one of the new one-handed sweat scrapers with a rubber tip that can be used gently on the legs and sensitive areas.
Help support the natural shaking process with a sweat scraper. Remove sweat, water or loose hair with the serrated blade and make grooming your horse a breeze. Loosen the hair with a curry comb and gently pull off loose hair with the fine teeth of the sweat scraper. Sweat scrapers can be used one-handed. This works well on large areas, such as the torso and belly, thus significantly reducing the amount of grooming required.
