Purchase: I purchased this item for about $50 or so from a local tack shop. I bought it because I felt it was time to upgrade my brushes again, and I felt that Oster was a good company, so I'd try their brushes.

Likes: I was very disappointed with this purchase. The only part I like about it was the comb, curry, and mane/tail brush. The hoofpick was also useful, too, because it doesn't bend like other cheap hoofpicks usually do.

Dislikes: I don't like the soft brush and stiff brush. I know that I'm not the only person who feels this way, too, because other people whom have purchased this item had the same thing happen. From the first time you use them the bristles of the brushes begin to fall out and push upward. They're very hard to clean as well. Once something is stuck in them, you can't get it out. The bristles are synthetic, and I myself prefer horsehair in the brushes. The synthetic bristles just don't clean as well.

Quality: I like the fact that everything is made of hard rubber. The brushes had a comfortable back on them and good grip.

Summary: I wouldn't recommend buying the whole set as I did. The brushes, though they look nice, fall apart from the beginning. Needless to say, I only used mine about 3 times before putting them away and reverting back to my older ones. Everything else in the kit I'd recommend though. It is a bit pricely, but the main and tail brush and comb withstand daily groomings. The curry also works very well. My horse agrees. I give this product a 3 because I didn't like the brushes, but do like all the other items included.
