Smart Manes Mane Thinning Rake

from 38.00


The Smart Manes thinning rake will actually thin out a really thick mane quickly and effortlessly.  As there is no backcombing involved, many horses that usually object to traditional mane pulling, will happily stand and not even know this is being used.

Grades available:
Coarse - Great for a more natural finish. Good for coarse/wiry types of mane. The teeth are spaced out more widely allowing thick hair to pass through more easily. (12 teeth)

Medium - Perfect for the average unruly mane, this will cope with medium to soft hair. (18 teeth)

Fine - Suitable for very soft manes and for manes which have already been tidied. (23 teeth)

Brush through the mane first and put on the “wrong side”.  Comb through with a Smart Manes starting at the top, one stroke at a time working down. Brush back on to correct side.  If you want a level finish – then use a thinning, knife, razor comb or scissor carefully to get a straight final finish . 

Please note, the Smart Manes will thin the hair very quickly so be careful not to remove too much hair in one go as this can cause the hair to grow back rather spiky.

I have had a problem with tidying up a very thick mane, my horse is very sensitive and hates me trying to pull it the normal way. As soon as I go to back comb he fidgets and pushes me up against the wall. Saw the Smart Manes on Instagram, and thought the results looked too good to be true, but just had to bite the bullet and buy one. I can honestly say its the best bit of grooming kit I have ever bought. Thinned the mane to perfection and my horse just stood there and relaxed as soon as he realised it was not going to hurt. Totally and utterly converted. Thank you Smart Grooming, amazing product. Sue Jenkinson
