From Endurance to Dressage
I'v been meaning to share this for a while, but there's been so much else happening that I kind of let it go until now. Have you ever used these jelly scrubbers?
Seriously. You could take every brush out of my grooming bag and leave me with just this one. Over the summer, this thing has become my go-to grooming tool. Speedy absolutely loves the thing and has gotten to the point where he BEGS for it each morning. Really. He does.
As soon as I pull in, he walks away from his food and starts talking to me. If I clean his stall first thing, he gets as close to me as he possibly can and starts shimmying along my side until I get the jelly scrubber. Once I start, he simply melts.
Not only does he love how it feels, but that thing gets out serious amounts of dirt and loose hair.
It also makes scrubbing legs a lot easier. And you know that gunk that geldings get on their hind legs? This thing loosens that stuff too without being painful.
And anything that makes Speedy feel like this, is totally worth the money, especially since it costs less than a coffee at Starbucks!
About the Writer and Rider
I am a lifelong rider.
I began endurance riding in 1996 where I ultimately completed five, one-day 100 mile races, the 200-mile Death Valley Encounter, and numerous other 50, 65, and 75 mile races. I began showing dressage in 2010.
Welcome to my dressage journey.
