Does EquiGroomer Really Work?

A few months ago I saw many people sharing EquiGroomer's videos on Facebook and I wanted to understand how that colourful piece of wood was "mysteriously" removing loose hair. I decided to put it to the test on Halona because Gali was recently clipped and it wouldn't make any sense to try it on him...


If you are familiar with this grooming tool, you should know that it comes in a variety of colours and in two sizes - the one on the picture above is the largest one (12cm or 9-inch). It consists of a steel blade set in a wooden piece that was designed to provide us comfort and although many people refer that the blade seems very sharp, it only looks like that because of the tiny teeth. I can assure you that this is a safe tool for both us and our horses.


Halona's body didn't have mud but she did have some dry stains of sweat on her body. EquiGroomer made those disappear, just as promised...but because she didn't have a ton of loose hair we didn't get the wow factor that I saw on all those Facebook videos.
Is this tool as unique as everybody claims? It is really nice but would work 100% better on horses that often stay outside! - well...to be honest it would also have been the most helpful thing if I didn't have a clipper, Gali looked like a bear during this Winter and we all know how annoying it is to have grey hair all over us!


Overall I would recommend it to anyone who needs an efficient hair removing tool that is perfect for the shedding season. 
I have seen people using EquiGroomer on dogs and cats as well so I will see how it performs on mine when I come home from college. To finish the post here's a small video of me using it on Halona:
