Grooming Brushes for Sensitive Horses: You know grooming your horse is suitable for their health and bonding between the two of you. But some horses are more sensitive than others regarding brush on skin.

This is why grooming brushes for sensitive horses exist. We’ve curated a good list for you and tips on why your horse may be sensitive.

Why some horses are sensitive to grooming

●    Not every equine companion has thick skin 

Thinner skin in horses exists. Some breeds, like Thoroughbreds and Arabians, are known for this. It’s just terrible coat genetics and not your hoofed friend’s fault.

●    Maybe it’s just you 

Grooming a horse can seem easy, but when it comes down to it, it’s not. Hence, sometimes, your horse could be sensitive to grooming when your technique, vibe, tone, or pressure is offensive.

●    They could be in real pain 

Muscle soreness or an injury you missed can cause your horse to pin its ears, swish its tail, and strike out or try to bite at the touch of a brush. Get your friendly vet to check and confirm for issues like this.

●    Dramatic much friends 

Finally, your hoofed friend may not be sensitive but just severely dramatic.
