Grooming Brushes

Why Groom?

  • To remove mud, dirt, scurf and sweat
  • To keep the skin and coat in good condition
  • To stimulate circulation
  • To tone and relax muscles
  • To improve appearance
  • To provide an opportunity to check for cuts, soreness or swelling

Why Hill & Champion? Hill and Champion has been manufacturing brushes (under the "Salmon ProductsT" and Winner's CircleT" logos) since the 1920s. Most of our brushes are made in Baltimore, MD, and by our parent company in England. We care about what we manufacture, and the animals our brushes are used on. Our brushes work, and work well; we are regarded as a yardstick of quality in the industry, and intend to remain that way. Good grooming brushes will make the groom's job easier, will make the horse happier, and will last longer. We offer a lot of other grooming equipment, including a good Chinese made economy line, various grooming aids and massagers, and JOZT products like brush and bit cleaners.

Oval ("Body") Brushes with straps. These are used for removing scurf, grease and dust, and (being gentler than dandy brushes) for brushing out the mane and tail. The close set, relatively short filaments of firmer body brushes reach right down through the coat to the skin beneath, lifting and removing dirt. We stock large and medium size body brushes, plus a smaller one for the kids.

Dandy Brushes. Dandy brushes should always be part of your grooming kit. Plastic and Union filled dandies are good for removing mud and dirt, and medium and soft brushes remove dust and bring the coat to a polished shine. We offer three sizes filled with many different materials for you to choose from, plus a good selection of 'duster' or 'flick' brushes. We also manufacture the "Beastie BrushT" range, great quality brushes with exciting, eye catching different colors and patterns, every time.

Also ask about our water brushes, face brushes and bucket brushes.

Wood or Plastic Backs? Hill and Champion offers both wood and plastic backs. Wood backs are perceived as being pleasanter to hold and to look at than plastic ones. Plastic backs, the more economic (if less 'green') of the two, will be more durable in environments where they are going to be left around in the sun or wet for long periods. Plastic backs are now available 'over molded', where two plastics are used allowing exciting color combinations.

Plastic or Natural Materials? Plastics (normally polypropylene) are colorful, fun, durable, rot proof, and versatile. However, poorer quality plastics, found in nearly all cheaper brushes, often split, wear to sharp points, or collapse altogether, making the brush useless and uncomfortable for your horse. Champion plastic filaments are in fact specially shaped (to a 'clover leaf' section) during the extrusion process to help overcome these problems. Natural materials lack the colorful vibrancy of plastics, but ours have outstanding characteristics, with generally better sweeping and cleansing action; they don't strip the natural oils out of the horse's coat but distribute them for an even, healthy shine; and they are kinder to the skin.
