Importance of Brushing

While showing an animal, the animal needs to look her best. Judges can easily notice animals that have been regularly brushed and those who have not.

  • Brush your show animal at least once a day
  • Brushing removes dirt and long hair so the soft and silky new hair can be visible
  • Animals regularly brushed have finer texture and high gloss

Washing Your Show Animal

Having a clean animal to show is crucial. The animal is not only judged by the performance, but the appearance as well.

  • Use a steady water flow starting at the hooves and making your way up the leg to the body
  • Hold ears so water does not enter, which could cause the ear to limp for a few days
  • Remove tangles with conditioner and brushing
  • Always allow time for your animal to dry before a show and do no place a blanket on your animal right after a bath, this causing molding and mats

When the competition gets fierce, use Hamilton Care™ products and win first place for your show animal’s best look.
