As an owner of two horses living with the Canadian springtime mud, I’ve been looking for a solution to get the mud out of my horses’ coats without my hand cramping around a curry comb or exhausting my arm with a shedding blade.
Around the barn, I’d seen my barn friends use these gloves, but never got around to using them until now. Boy, do I wish I had bought them sooner!
Both horses gave my gloved hand a good sniff before letting me touch them with it. That’s okay. I rather give them the time to process. I tried them on my gelding first, as he typically loves to be groomed and he is a bid shredder too! He hadn’t been brushed in a while and was full of dried mud and unshed hair. I went to town with the HandsOn gloves and I was surprised how easy it was to get the grime out of his coat and how much he loved it. Using two hands, instead of one, made a huge difference! It took me less time than usual to get him clean and I was less tired by the end of it. I also used them on his legs and face unlike the traditional curry comb. The gloves stayed firmly in place and were comfortable to use. I also loved that removing the hair from the gloves was easy and didn’t require picking out hairs from a brush or comb.
My mare, who doesn’t like to be groomed, loved my scratching her pole with the gloves and enjoyed the shoulder and chest massage. She was happier with the gloves than the curry comb or the massage curry comb that I have for her. She had less fur to shed and was less dirty, but the gloves did their magic on her as well.
When I was done, I gently hand-washed the gloves and hung to dry. You don’t have to clean them every time. I did to see how easily they could be cleaned.
Once it warms up a bit, I look forward to using them to give my two horses a good bath. I’ll make sure to take a video of that.
In the meantime, here is the promotional video from HandsOn.
To conclude, I recommend the HandsOn grooming gloves to level up your horse grooming routine or even to use on your other pets. Just make sure to buy different gloves for each pet for hygiene reasons!
