Shed Flower Curry
Grooming Equipment



Manufacturer: Epona
Model: Shed Flower Curry
Category: Grooming Equipment

Purchase: I got mine, as well as one for a gift, at one of those trailer tack shops at a Dressage show. I paid about $5 for it. My sister was so jealous of it she got her own from a normal tack shop, again for about $5. In case you haven't seen this curry, it is bright colored semi-opaque plastic shaped like the outline of a flower, almost like a cookie-cutter, with the middle and top open. Your fingers grip between the petals, and there are tiny little teeth for grooming at the other end.

Likes: The curry works EXTREMELY well for bring up dirt from the skin and loosening hair. Normal rubber curries are just too soft and round, and don't bring up the dirt and oils from the skin the way this little tool can. After a couple uses, the bloom in your horse's coat really comes out in a way I haven't seen with any other tool. With regular use, even a dull-coated horse will start to show dapples or marbling, or at least become super shiny! Also, the curry itself it very cute and unusual.

Dislikes: My number one complaint (and it actually is quite a hassle) is that the top of the curry is open, and so there is no way to use this tool without your hand getting absolutely filthy, COVERED in dirt. This has resulted in a lot of embarrassing "dirt mustaches" for me after wiping my nose while grooming. The fact that it works so well at getting dirt out of the coat only makes your hand dirtier! In order to use it, you really need to keep a towel handy to wipe your hands off on. My only other complaint is that I'm not sure how comfortable this would be on a thin-skinned horse. My horse is very tolerant, but even he pulls faces when I really get going with this tool. It is firm plastic, and has tiny little teeth on the "business" end that could be uncomfortable on the wrong horse. Then again, most curries upset thin-skinned horses...

Quality: Excellent quality. One curry will last forever, I'm sure. Also, it's plastic so you can just rinse it off, and there aren't any crevices for scurf to get stuck in and smell or grow dangerous bacteria. Absolutely no complaints here!

Summary: This is a wonderful curry which not only works great, but is cute as well. It represents an extremely small monetary investment (and so few things do, for us horse-people!), and will improve your horse's coat immensely. As far as I'm concerned, if you run across one in your local tack shop, buy one for yourself and then a couple more for your best barn-buddies!
