Essential equipment for the stables
Vale brothers has been making Equerry brushes for more than 2 centuries, and was a standby of the elite for most of that history. In fact, they remain the world’s largest manufacturer of horse grooming brushes to this day. However, the modern world comes to every brand in time, and around 20 years ago they expanded their product offerings to include not just the Equerry range of horse brushes but also horse rugs, saddles, bridles, whips and baggage. The good news is that Vale Brothers has managed to retain their absolute dedication to craftsmanship and quality of materials, even while pricing their modern products to be within reach of the average UK horse owner.
Quality horse brushes by Equerry
Some of their products really stand out from the competition, such as the Equerry P6 Bassine Dandy Brush
. This is a great all-rounder, with a classic wooden base and bristles made of all-natural fibres. After that, all you need is a finer brush to finish up, and the Equerry 3P Large Body Brush
is one of our personal favourites. It is a classic wooden-backed and oval shaped brush with fine bristles. It not only removes finer particles of dirt after using a dandy brush, it brings out the natural shine of a good coat amazingly.
The best horse grooming brushes
Here at Saddle Up & Ride, we use the Equerry range of grooming brushes ourselves, because of the sheer quality that comes from a centuries-old manufacturing tradition. We want nothing but the best when caring for our horses. There are a few other makers who can deliver this level of craftsmanship, and none at this very approachable price point.
