The First step in grooming are the mane and the tail of the horse.

Use the Hair Brush to brush through the horse’s mane, be careful not to make fast unexpected movements, especially as you get closer to the horses head and ears. Some horses might not like that.

When grooming the tail, be careful to not rip out too much hair. You can also use the Body brush which will prevent too many hairs to rip out of the horse’s tail. Those hairs will take 7 years to fully grow back to their initial length!

 

TIPP: When brushing the tail, divide the tail into sections and hold each of them individually while you brush the lower end. This also prevents too many hairs from being pulled out.

This is fantastic. Lots of good tips :D
