    Essential Brush Kit is rated 4.625 out of 5 by 64.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice Brushes, Except One I'm happy with most of the brushes in this kit, but the stiff brush with the medium border has begun shedding. After only a week or two of use, it is missing 4 little bunches of bristles. That being said, the bristles that are left are good, and the other brushes haven't had the same problem. I especially love the black brush, which is hard enough to get sweat marks off but soft enough to use all over.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice but Unexpected I bought these as a wonderful Christmas gift for myself, at first look I don't think these brushes could have looked any grander or new, but later they prove to be interesting.The flick brush is VERY stiff, it feels like you're brushing with a hoof pick brush, but it's a but softer. It does a good job, but not a feel I like.The white (Tampico?) brush is very hard to clean. I clean them by rubbing a curry over them, and with this one brush the bristles go FLYING out of the fast holds, as long as you don't clean it that way, it works wonderfully. A nice medium hard brush.The finishing brush is a nice soft brush. I can't be happier with it. The last is quite hard, so for muddy ponies it's perfect!Overall, they are quality brushes, but none of them like to be cleaned.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great set, no problem with white one I've owned this set for about a year now and love it. It is very dry and dusty where I live and people at the barn are always asking how I get my horse so clean.Recent reviews show the Bleached Tampico soft brush as being of poor quality and losing bristles, but it is the main brush I use and I've never had any problems. My mare has sensitive skin and the stiff center brush is a little too stiff for every day use, but I use it during shedding and sometimes for her mane and tail. The finishing brush is awesome and is what gets the dust and dirt off. I only use the flicker brush occasionally, but it works well too.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from All but one brush are awesome These are really nice brushes. My only complaint is about the bleached soft brush, which is so soft the bristles fall out super easily. Since they came in the kit, I don't think I can return just the one brush. Otherwise, I am very happy with these brushes.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Most of these Brushes were great! All of the brushes in this set were awesome, except for the bleached soft brush. The first time I used it it started shedding white hairs everywhere, and my horse is black! A lot of people had the same problem, maybe smartpack will switch this with a higher quality brush!The rest of the brushes are great, and the engraving came out beautiful!

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from One of Four Bad Brushes Ruins the Rating Three of the four brushes are fine. The brush with soft white fibers is very poor quality (I don't know if it is the Bleached Tampico Soft Brush or the Winner's Circle Gold Finishing Brush). I used it on my chestnut and with the first stroke he was covered with long, white brush fibers. I had to use another brush to remove the fibers! Fibers fall out by the dozens when you just run your hand over the brush.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from LOVE the Flick brush and the soft brush, The hard brush and the stiff center w/ medium body brush aren't holding up the way I'd like. They shed bristles however using all of the brushes makes my horse have a show-quality shine. I don't even need show sheen now!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very Nice, Not As Amazing As I Thought I am saving these brushes to use as show items only, so I cannot vouch for their durability yet. They seem like well-made, quality brushes. They are nice, but not quite as nice as I expected. I viewed these brushes as a "splurge" purchase, but if I had to do it again, I think I'd go ahead and spend the extra money on the more expensive brush set. My hands are small, and these fit well in my hand and are not too small and not too large or hard to handle. The flick brush bristles were warped from shipping, (but that should fix itself over time) and the softest brush is not as soft as I thought it would be. The body brush with the stiff center and softer border is a cool brush to have. I love the natural bristles. Overall, a good purchase, but I would recommend shelling out the extra bucks for the nicer set.
