Review of price:
This bit of grooming equipment was useful for removing hair, according to our review.
The EquiGroomer, which is relatively new on the market, has been called “probably the most effective grooming tool in the grooming industry”. So you can see why I was so excited to test it. I tried a 12cm EquiGroomer in the green color.
The EquiGroomer, a hardened steel knife with a wooden handle, can be described as a simple tool. The blade seemed very sharp, so I was initially cautious when I received it. This is why I recommend that children be supervised when using the product. Wooden handles are not something I like as they can chip if they are dropped in the yard. It was a great addition to my grooming toolkit, and I loved the bright, cheerful color.
This product can easily be used to comb thick and dense hair without making it uncomfortable for horses. The tool can remove dirt and dead hair, making the coat shiny and smooth. The product was delivered to me in December. My horse had already been clipped. Although the description stated that it is suitable for sensitive horses, I decided not to use the tool until the shedding season. He can be quite tickly, and he was full-grown so there wasn’t much mud.
We have a Dartmoor pony in our yard that isn’t clipped, and he loves to play in the mud. The EquiGroomer worked in a similar way to a curry comb, and removed dried mud from the pony’s long coat. It is not too sharp to be used on horses so don’t be intimidated by its appearance.
As we move into summer, I use the equigroomer to groom all the horses at my yard. It has never been a problem. Even the most sensitive horses love to be groomed using it. It’s a good length, so you can groom a good area at once. It has been great at removing winter coats, especially on Shetland ponies and Dartmoor ponies. The tool is particularly effective in lifting grease and wax off horses’ coats (see below), making them shiny and clean. However, this can be a little tricky to get off the blade. The video will show you how much dead hair it removes even from horses with short coats.
This tool has been used on horses as well as dogs. They love it and it works equally well for them. The large EquiGroomer works well for larger dogs. However, if your dog is small, you might consider the smaller size (6.5 cm) of the EquiGroomer.
It has rusted a little where it got wet due to the nature of this product. However, this is normal for a steel product and it still works well. It is made of hardened steel, but I am concerned about the blade’s effectiveness over time. This being said, we have been using the product for six months now and it still performs as well today as it did the first day.
This tool is quick and efficient, and I recommend it to anyone looking for a way to remove dead hair from their horses during shedding season. It is not recommended for horses that are clipped. I also prefer to use it for shedding than removing mud. However, I do appreciate the versatility of this tool and think it would make a great addition to any grooming kit.
