Love this brush. It pulls up the dirt with the longer outside bristles and the inside bristles whisk away the dirt leaving the horses hair nicely groomed. He likes it as well. Especially on the belly and legs! It fits nicely in your hand. I have not washed this brush yet.
My new horse has had several panic attacks in the aisle when fastened to cross ties. I started slipping the lead rope through a loose loop in one cross tie and she is much happier.
I have used this clip with her when tying to the side of the trailer and it has worked well. A couple of times she seemed uncomfortable and pulled back, but relaxed once she felt some slack, avoiding the panic I've seen before in the aisle. I will definitely use this when we are on the road and I need to tie her in the trailer or to the side. (I would use in the aisle but the rings are very high up and require a ladder).
