Strokes of GENIUS

Two pro grooms share their secrets for top-notch brushing and currying.

The horse is a living, breathing piece of art. Keeping these exquisite creatures in peak condition involves many important tasks, but one key component is grooming. Two industry professionals share their thoughts with Horse Illustrated on how they take the familiar jobs of currying and brushing to the next level.
