Equine grooming is a hygenic treatment of the horse or a procedure in which the horse's look is improved for tournaments or other competitions. Your primary reason for taking good day-to-day grooming:: Pferdeshowmanship is a horse show category that takes into account the maintenance of up to 40% of the overall points.

A number of different brushes are often used in horse care. The correct application and technology will help keep the horse in comfort during the grooming cycle and make it easier to clean the beast. This is a gum or synthetic material utensil with small "teeth" on one side that glides onto the groom's hands.

As a rule, it is the first instrument for everyday care. It is used to rub or "loosen" the horse to remove debris, remove unwanted debris and other residues and stimulate the horse's skins to make naturally-oiled horse's skins. They are particularly suitable for the use on the horse with thick fur, but are mainly used for show cows and are often used to wash horse bristles by brushing the bristles over the metallic curl combs.

It is not intended for use directly on the horse's outer fur, as metallic tines can cause damages to the horse's hide and fur. Bristly brush: Rigid bristle is used to eliminate debris, fibres and other materials whirled up by the shampooing. They are used in the horse's growing area, usually in brief lines from front to back, except on the sides, where the roots grow in a different design.

Usually you can use denim toothbrushes on the feet, but many ponies refuse a rigid one. A number of denim toothbrushes have a dual function as a waterbrush when wetted in and used to moisten the coiffure, the mans, or the tails. Bodybrush or Softbrush or "Dandy Brush":

Smooth bristle sweeper eliminates fine particulates and dirt, gives a shiny fur and calms the horse. You can use a personal hygiene product, especially a smaller version known as a face scrubber, on the horse's snout. A number of our products are made of horse-haired, goat-haired or wild pig filaments, while others are made of smooth synthetics.

As a rule, the last horse mounted scrubber is the last one. Cleaning cloths or towels, also known as stall rubbers: A canvas or terry towels or similar towels or fleece gloves can be used to shine the fur of a horse and is also used after horseback ride to wipe away perspiration.

Maned hair removal tool or comb: The combing of a horse with long, drawn maned hair is done with a broadly serrated synthetic or metallic combs. Cocks and long hair are either polished with a bristle or an appropriate real hair bristle broom. We use a shortly serrated tension ridge to cut and dilute the hair to prepare it for weaving.

Scraper blade: In particular climatic situations, a metallic scraper knife with blunt blades is used to eliminate friable wintershairs. Grooming utensils with metallic teeths can, however, splinter and blunt the horse's fur and can cause irritation to the horse's skull. Therefore, they must be used with appropriate caution. Similarly, metallic cleaning equipment used on show animals and lambs can be too hard to use on a horse.

Frequently, the insect repellent is sprayed onto the horse in hot weather. Boat Knives or Boat Bricks: to eliminate Boat Flying Egg from the horse, which is normally placed on the horse's feet or buttocks. Bottled egg is amber and about the dimension of a grit of sandy soil, clearly seen on black and more difficult to see on whitish shedding.

Bots are a small polystyrene foam bricks or blocks that take up balls when ground against the scalp. To trimp long bristles that grow under the mandible and the cuffs, as well as to trimp the bridles or to tap the tails. Little mouthwashes can be used to wash the eye, nostrils, lips and, with a seperate mopping pad for the job, under the cockpit and around the genitalia.

Bigger size can be used to moisturize and purify the limbs and thighs. The hoof grooming is particularly important for the horse. Even though many ponies are quite well without being brushed every day, a shortage of hoof grooming can lead to various health challenges which, if left unsupervised, can lead to health difficulties for the horse in the long or long run.

Horseback riding in cold weather also offers the possibility of clearing the horse's hoofs of ice, which can lead to unpleasant "snowballs". The best way to prevent accidental stabbing of the horse's bone, ungulate wolf or the user of the horseshoe is to work the scratch from tip to tail.

The bridegroom is standing with the horse's cock on the horse's side and then glides his hands over the horse's thigh. When the horse has not been exercised to lift its ankle, when a man walks to the ankle with his hands and raises slightly, most will lift its legs when the sinews are compressed behind its canons.

A number of ponies, especially draught ponies, can be taught to lift their legs to press on their cuffs. The majority of horse keeping regulations suggest plucking the horse's foot every single working day, and in many cases the foot is plucked twice a year, both before and after a horse-riding. Usually clear polishing is used in show hunting, show jumping and show jumping as well as in most breeding shows, with the exception of some stick horse races.

Whitening is seen in the West, especially in the West, but some races, especially the Appaloosa, prohibit any polishing that changes the colour of the muffler. Gaits have different laws, some allow the use of dark polishing, others limit their use. The horse can be immersed in a bath by moistening it with a flexible tube or by spraying it with mud.

There is no need to bathe a horse and many a horse does not need a bathtub for its whole life. However after a hard training, often a horse is sprayed with coolant and often bathed before a horse show to get rid of all possible stains.

You must be educated for swimming, because a tube and flowing waters are unknown items and can scare a horse at first. Be careful when you spray the horse's torso that no moisture hits the horse. It is safe to use either horse or man shampoos on a horse when thoroughly washed, and creams or moisturisers, similar to those used by people, are often used on showjumpers.

Too much Shampoonieren can release the Haar from nature oil and let dries out. Although it is possible to rinse a horse in hard work, such as racing horse, after training, it is usually not recommended to wash a horse more than once a weeks, even in the show time.

You can keep a well-groomed, neat horse neat by carrying a horse cover or a horse cloth. A lot of dressage shoes have cut or cut off a lot of the horse's head, especially for the show. Breeding competition is also subject to very different standard and deviations from the accepted care methods may not be allowed at breeding shows. It' often best to review the regulations and ask a rider with experience in your sport or race before you perform any kind of trim or clip on a show horse.

Strong "wrong" clippings are often seen in the horse industry as big socks. Cut off back bone, with clip-on gun, cuff, ankle, handcuffs and coronal cuff. Whereas some excerpts have their origin in practice, many excerpts today are very much rooted in the exhibition styling for which a particular horse is used.

Among the most commonly circumcised areas are: Snaffle: A section of hair directly behind the ear is often cut off or shaven off. Conveniently placed on the other side of the pole, this makes bridling the horse a little bit more comfortable, as the hair and front curl are separate and easy to avoid.

For example, American saddleback and Arabian horses are often shown in the United States with riding trails several centimeters long, while other races (such as the Frisian horse) are not allowed to have a riding area.

The riding trails in Great Britain and mainland Europe are rather small, if at all, although there are differences between breeds. There' s little actual need to cut the face, it is done primarily for esthetic purposes. It is most convenient under the pine to achieve a more sophisticated look and eliminate excessive bristles that can disturb the cape fringe and the throat of the frig.

A few also cut the probes above and below the eye. Cutting the moustache or eye curly fur is a subject of little debate, as it should help to avoid injuries, as the horse can "feel" when it approaches an objectio. Ear: The horse's auricle can be cut, sometimes both inside and outside.

If the inside of the horse's eyes are circumcised, a mosquito net with hearing protectors is often placed on the horse to substitute for it. It is also frequently cut on the back of the lower gun, also to get rid of long hair. The coronal strap is cliped for a really shiny look to reduce the small hair that grows on the edge of the hooves.

For most lightweight saddle mounts, foot clippings are used. There are, however, several races, especially draught horse races, which regard the lower thigh suspension as a characteristic of the race and do not allow the cutting off of the shackles or "feathers" on the lower thighs. Cutting the underside of the throat, shoulders and hind quarters.

Besides simple trim, many of our ponies are often cliped during the cold season to get their fur off. It can be used for convenience as it keeps the horse more pleasant and cools him down more quickly during work. This can also be done for esthetic purposes, as most riders are agreed that a horse with a short fur looks more delicate and eye-catching.

In addition, it is usually simpler and less time-consuming to care for when the coat is cut. When deciding to cut a horse, it is important to remember that they eliminate the horse's ability to defend itself against the cool. Therefore, they must be able to cover and, in some cases, stabilize the horse when the horse's temperatures fall, in the event of heavy rains or in the event of powder.

The bridegroom has to replace the blanket as needed, but it is important to keep the horse in comfort and health. Some of the different grab clamps are: Full bodyclip: The whole horse's anatomy is cliped, incl. top and thighs.

It is the most widely used bodyclip in the USA and is used in many different sports. This is the most "natural" video that resembles the horse's regular hair and is a relatively simple one. It offers, however, the least amount of physical security for the horse.

Hunters Clamp: All the horse is severed, except the feet and a hairline under the nut. It is used on the shooting ground and is still used there today because it protects the back of the horse (important for hunts lasting several hours) and the lower thighs ( (which can be severed by blackberries), but still allows the horse to remain chilly when cantering.

Ceiling clip: The long hairs remain in a cover-like area on the horse. I cut off my back, my back, my back, my back, my knees and my thighs. Track Clip: varied, but usually the horse is cut under the throat, along the carotid, and then at half height of the abdomen and collar.

In addition, many cut a stripe on half height of the cheeks at the snout. Because it follows a similar design, the video is called after the tracks of the car. Quantity of extracted hairdryer depends on the horse's work, the amount of sweating during work and the areas where it perspires most.

A chaser clip: The hair is taken from a line below the survey to the knee joint, the feet remain on. It is a favourite for obstacle runners because it keeps the back of the horse hot, but also allows a lot of work. Stripe or abdominal clip: The hair is cut along the corrugation, the breast and under the heel.

It is a minimum size bracket, and many of our clients do not need any additional maintenance beyond the normal blanket. Usually the horse has maintained its hair to suit a particular race, type or practicality. Unravel the hair with a simple bristle or a broadly serrated ridge and remove debris for casual enjoyment.

It can be kept in a long, relatively naturally state, which is necessary for some races, especially the ones used in the British saddle-style horse racing. Long manes can be placed in five to seven long, relatively thick plaits between shows to keep them in good shape, promote their growth and minimise the penetration of soil and soiling.

Races that are to be exhibited with a long hair will hold a long hair in almost all events, even where the show label normally needs to be thin out or pulled. For some races or events, especially in many westerns and hunting sit events, the hair is thin and cut for competitive use. Tugging is the most frequent way of cutting and thining-out the mahne.

A diluted hair was initially thought to be easy to remove debris and ridges and to avoid the horseman, which was a worthwhile thing to do in terms of keeping a constant check on thinnings. As a rule, not only are abridged and diluted but are also displayed in many single plaits when they are shown in hunting, show jumping, training, show jumping, show jumping, eventing and related hunting and show riding events.

Heavy horse races, especially draught horse, can have their hairs woven in France instead of drawn, diluted and put into single plaits. Races requiring long hairs may also weave the hair with a ponytail if an insect is crossed in both a race and in a hunter-jumper event. It can also be "roached" or "hogged", which means that it is fully-shaven.

That is especially the case with Australian pole and roped pony, to clear the manes and avoid the hammer or cable getting caught. The fundamental care of the tails begins with the simple brush-off of debris, growling and confusion, sometimes with the help of a disentangling produt.

The care of a horse used in exhibitions or competitions can be much more comprehensive. The primary use of the cock, however, is to protect flies, and certain kinds of show care can prevent the use of this element. Show care can be used to style the end of the cock (the meat-covered part of the cock where the roots of the coat are) and the "skirt" (the coat under the tip of the dock) in a number of ways:

It can be kept as long as possible and stimulated to develop naturally and sometimes even has extra artificially placed locks of it. In other cases it can be trimmed, diluted or even very briefly sliced. Some races are shown with their cocks on. A" natural" cock is not chopped or woven when the horse is presented in the ring.

You can encourage the cock to keep growing as long as possible, often by holding the cock coat in a long weave when not in combat, usually even folding and covering it to keep it neat. Short hair of the landing stage may be loosely hung so that the horse can still fly.

"You can also dilute and form "natural" cocks by drawing the hair on the sides of the docks, or by drawing the longest hair in the skirts of the cocks, to make the cocks short and less full, although it retains a naturally taper. Even the hair of the caudal fins is trimmed. "The " clip " of the cock usually relates to the trim of the sides of the docks, up to a point about half the height of the docks.

When tapping the tip, the underside of the tip is cut down even. At the other end, cock lengthenings, also called "false tails" or "tail wigs", are fake hair pieces that are woven or bound into the cock to make it longer or rich. The weaving of the tale in a French weave, with which the coat remains relaxed, is often seen with hunting competitions and hunting seats.

For polos, draught horse and Lipizzaner ponies, which carry out the caprice, the whole cock, the jib and the coat, the weave is usually woven and knotted or curled, with or without additional bands and other ornament. During bad wheather the participants in many other events can put the skirts of the tails into a similar stylised node, the so-called mudtail.

With the draught horse and some crockery races, the cock is very briefly trimmed, so that it does not get entangled in a pot. To use the word "docked" or "docked" can mean just that the coat of the cock is trimmed very shortly after the end of the normal one.

It can also relate to a part of a tale amputated. It is forbidden in some places and any kind of doescking can make it hard for a horse to fly well. A further disputed practise, the adjustment of the cock, consists of positioning the cock in an apparatus that always carries it in a curved posture for the show.

It is used when the horse comes to a standstill and is taken out during show. The horse's cock is held in place by stretching the muscle and is not used after the horse has been eliminated from the tournament. Occasionally, the disputed technique of notching or severing the control band, which normally draws the cock downwards, accelerates the work.

As a rule, this practise is only used for a few races, such as the American saddle animal. A highlighter is a gels, ointments or oils that are used to give gloss to certain parts of the horse's face. It is less often placed on the horse track, comb, knee, ankles, manes and tails.

In the United States it is used by certain races such as stick and gangrassen, but is scorned in the hunter-discipline. The most races that allow emphasis demand that they are clear, without colour or colour. Nape perspiration is a compress, usually made of Neopren, which is placed on the horse's throat or cheek to make it perspire.

It is used both by races that tend to have heavier throats, which profit from a certain weight reduction, and races with sophisticated throats to achieve a more pronounced sophistication, often referred to as the "hooked" throat. Numerous different types of product, mostly in spraying mode, have been designed to give a coating additional lustre, smoothing or sheen.

A number of spray products are oil-based, but because they draw dirt, more frequent spray products for improving the fur are oil-free, often also known as "silicone sprays", which make the fur very straight and smoothen. Usually used after bathing and drying, but sometimes used on a horse that has not been bathing to provide a fast shine for short-term use, such as a photo.
