Horse Deshedding… Top Products for Helping Your Horse Shed its Winter Coat
Horse deshedding is something every horse owner deals with year after year. The snow has melted, the flowers are blooming and the birds are chirping. Springtime has finally returned after a long and cold winter and with it, you’re preparing your horse for the warm weather. We find that helping your horse shed its winter coat is normally most effective when done with a two-part approach. The first is finding a good supplement to help your horse get all the nutrients and vitamins it needs for the deshedding process. The second is regular grooming with a good shedding tool, and we’ve given you our top picks!

This “jewel of a tool” is arguably the best curry ever designed and has a perfectly molded dome which conforms to the curves of your palm.
