There’s nothing more powerful than transformation, whether it’s helping your horse shed his winter coat, having a training breakthrough, or finding that pair of jeans that fit just right in the saddle and look good enough to hit the town, too. Even when it comes to something super basic like groom- ing, there’s always room for improvement. I thought I knew how to give a horse a bath—such a simple task, really. Then I saw my friend Catherine in action in the wash rack. Being a
professional groom, she really knows how to make a horse shine. I picked up a whole
bunch of new tips just from watching her.
To help elevate your grooming to the next level, we’ve rounded up some of our
favorite tools of the trade in this issue. We’ve also brought in a pro to help you up
your long-mane game. If you love the look of a long, full mane and always wondered
how to get it, check out the expert regimen on pg. 46.
But makeovers aren’t only skin deep. Horseman Mark Rashid is a master at fixing
problem horses, and there’s much to be gained from his experience restarting horses.
In our special excerpt of Finding the Missed Path, follow his training process to
transform a horse that was locked and braced into a softer, more relaxed ride.
We hope this issue will inspire you to your own makeover moments for both
you and your horse. Let us know what you’re working on and how it goes!
