Purchase: I bought the Oster kit at the beginning of December of 2005 from State Line Tack for $49.99 (it is now 39.99)I bought it so I could have a nice complete set to use at home and take to the shows. It comes with a stiff grooming brush, mane and tail brush, coarse curry comb, hoof pick, a soft grooming brush, a mane and tail comb, and a bag.

Likes: I really like how it is all really neat and every thing has a spot to put it in the storage bag. It also looks very neat having all matching items. I always get complements on the kit. I will say I have misused and mistreated the brushes, just throwing them in the dirt, on the ground, etc and not a mark. I feel they are very durable and will last me years. They also do their job very well and takes minutes off my grooming time, which I have found works well in last minute grooming jobs during shows. The curry comb also helps get out poo-poo stains when giving a bath. All I have to do is wet the horse and curry the poo-poo spot and it not only takes out part of the stain, but it brings it more to the surface so the shampoo gets the rest of it. One other thing I like how there is a little area that leaves enough room to hold a little item such as mini clippers or a pulling comb. The last thing I have to say is that I LOVE how easy it is too clean, all I have to do is run in under water and ALL of the dirt is gone, but I do still bleach my brushes to kill any germs, but there is never any dirt at the bottom of the bucket after bleaching if I rinsed them off first.

Dislikes: The biggest dislike for me was how the bag was the 7th piece in the kit. While it is helpful to have a bag, they could have included the fine curry comb or the face brush, or another of Osters many other products. The other dislike, while it isn't a major problem is that the comb, brush, and hoof pick compartments take a bit of time to break in, and it can be a struggle at first to get them into the correct place, but it is fine once broken in.

Quality: This kit is of exceptional quality and is very hard to break. It is a kit that is easy to care for, if my kit was a horse I would describe it as 'high performance, but a easy keeper'

Summary: Overall it is one of the best investments I have made, and is something I would buy all over again in a heartbeat. I am also having fun buying other Oster products to add to the Oster family!
