As riders and online shoppers, we know it can be tough to buy a new bridle or pair of boots without trying them on. That's why we moved the fitting room to your living room (or barn)! From breeches to blankets, if you or your horse can try it on, you can return it, free! Just use the pre-paid return label included in your order within 60 days from the purchase date. And of course, please make sure the item is in like-new condition with original packaging (we said 'fitting room', not 'war room'!).

Why We Love This

The SoloComb is an essential item for a tidy mane and tail. Create a natural look without the tedious job of pulling. Back comb the hair as usual and then instead of pulling the hair simply press the lever and the hair is instantly and painlessly clipped.

Favorite Features

  • High impact plastic SoloComb is extremely lightweight and easy to use.
  • The SoloComb even works on the whiskers and is great for grooming dogs too!
  • We also carry the Replacement Blades

    SoloComb is rated 4.4672 out of 5 by 122.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy to use and works I have an extremely head shy horse so I wanted to try something new. Ususally pulling his mane involves having someone hold him, while he throws his head up and tries to back away. I can't even cross tie him because he will panic and break them. The SoloComb made the process so much easier! Its very simple to use and the horse doesn't feel a thing. It doesn't "pull" the mane in any way so if you are looking to thin the mane out this doesn't do that. But since my horse has a thick mane, I used the Solo Comb to get the desired length and then pulled a little out as well just to thin things out. This saved my horse and I so much time and stress. I've only used it once, so I can't comment on how long the blades last though. But with a head shy horse it is well worth the money.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Well! You get the pulled look without the pain! The SoloComb helps to speed up the pulling process with my big 17h horse and he likes it alot better too! Although I still have to use a pulling comb to thin the mane it works great to shorten it and get it even.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for Youngsters Looks like a pulled mane without the pain. I've used this for years on my young horses (and the cranky ones) and it works great for all of us. I only wish the product were more durable - I have gone through a number of them. But then, it would be more expensive so...

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from solocomb, i love you I purchased the solocomb for my daughter's horse who WILL NOT allow his mane to be pulled, It was thick and wild from us cutting it and nearly impossible to braid. The solocomb trims and thins in one easy motion without putting any pressure or pulling on the horse. Its been like a godsent for us. My daughter did it by herself and when she turned him around so i could see her work i couldn't believe it!! Cocoa's mane was neat and tidy and laid flat against his neck. This is a MUST HAVE item for anyone whose horse doesn't like pulling.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Happy Horse! I love this product! I have a horse that HATES having his mane pulled. A friend at the barn recommended this product after using it on her horse and I have to say that it has been a dream! I have only used it once to "pull" a medium length mane to short and it did a fantastic job! My horse was so relaxed that he fell asleep in the crossties. I will never pull another mane again and I am glad that I made my horse happy also with this product!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from good but not a pulling substitute This is great for a quick touch up. Very easy. Very fast. My horse didn't seem to even know I was doing it. But it's not really a substitute for pulling - results are a bit like trimming with scissors. Finishing up with an abbreviated pull seems to have better results.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from disappointed The first time I used the Solo Comb it worked great. The second mane I tried I could not use it at all!! It would not cut. This is my second Solo Comb the 1st one I used about 6 times and then got replacement blades 2 sets and could not get it to work with either set. I thought I would try it again, so I bought a new one and now I am disappointed. It cost $26.00 and only got 1 use.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Neat product Definitely a quick way to shorten a mane without pulling. The proof will be in the braiding! I didn't feel that I was able to get as close to the base of the mane as I would have liked. But, maybe I just need practice!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Saved My Fingers Arthritic fingers and a new horse are not a good combination to achieve a neat mane. However the SoloComb really made it ridiculously easy. The caveat-- follow the directions and only back-comb a small amount of mane, as you would to actually pull the mane. The result is a nice neat pulled look with fingers and horse none the worse for the experience. A handy and well made addition to my grooming box.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from So Easy! I have a tb with a fairly thick mane and i was really struggling to pull it and he was starting to get quite fussy. So a friend recommended this product and i fell in love! It was so quick and easy i was able to make his mane look fabulous in about 15 min. Then i just went back over it and pulled some of the areas to give it a more tidy actually pulled look.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Must have around the barn! Most everybody at my barn carries these and they are so helpful. They are easy to use and the horses don't mind them at all! My horse was still antsy the first time I used it, thinking I was going to pull his mane out and was really surprised when he couldn't feel anything! It still produces a really nice, natural look too.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from So easy to use! I was able to trim my OTTB's mane in no time. Following the natural curve of his mane/neck, just back comb and trim; nice sharp blade. Very easy to cut too short so start with the longer strands first and then make a second path as needed.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Better than pulling for SOME horses Easy to use, except in very thick manes - where you end up cutting not quite close enough to the crest. Still prefer to pull in horses that don't mind, but ended the battles with one of mine.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from It works My horse has a thick mane, this product helps thin it out before my arms die.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from What I expected Not a bad tool. Doesn't work exactly how it is supposed to but having used them before this was no surprise. Wish the comb lock was a bit stronger. I'll always use this for pulling. It's easier on the horse and hands.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Specific Horses Only I first used this on my horse who has a very thin mane and it worked great. Very easy and efficient. I then tried to use on my horse who has a much thicker mane. It worked for about two small inches and then completely failed to work at all. It won't cut anything now. Very disappointed. I don't think I was overdoing the amount of hair in it for the second horse so not worth the money.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Makes my life so much easier! I bought this comb after reading other reviews and decided to try it. I have a very sensitive young Thoroughbred who hated having his mane pulled and had a melt down each time I tried! I used this comb for the first time last week and not only was it easy and quick to use but, his mane looks fantastic! I wish I had found this sooner!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from works I do not like the idea of pulling a mane but still wanted a cleaner look and the comb really worked

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Thing Since Sliced Bread LOVE LOVE LOVE this invention. I had an original of these from years ago that vanished at a trainer's and it took me way to long to order another. I could use one all day. The pain of pulling manes is gone for good for both me and my horses!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE THIS THING!! this is the best main comb ever! like the other reviewer i too like more of the natural true pulled main look, however with my mares main thats next to impossible. Her main is SOOOO THICK that in order to "pull" it, it would take several days and by the end of it my arms hurt and my mare would get quite annoyed with the whole ordeal. Also her main if not done right will go in 7 different directions so i figured id give this a try after another person brought it up. its a true life saver! it gives a really nice look to the main just like if you pulled it and I'm now able to do my mares main in recored time. it also works as a main trimer to shorten the main. you can easily lop off the ends to trim it up between pulls or if you have a thin maned horse that just needs it shortened with out pulling, but it gives that same natural look rather than cutting. I will never be with out least while i own this mare. the blades to last a reasonable time and its not too hard to find replacement blads...smartpak carries them as do quite a few tack stores.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Staple Item I finally decided to try this item out on my mare. Even though I am a fan of the look of a true pulled mane, my horse was not a fan of the experience. I decided to try this as an alternative to a fight with her. I was very shocked at how nice you can get the mane to look with this tool. If you use it right you can definitely get a great look.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from SoloComb is great! My daughter and I were at the point of almost pulling our hair out when we pulled her gelding's mane. This boy is super sensitive! So, instead of pulling his mane we cut it aproximately to length with thinning shears and then used the SoloComb by back combing and cutting. It looks great and turned a miserable job into something quick and easy. I have to say this product is pricey, but I think if you have a "sensitive boy" like ours then go for it. It will pay off by saving your nerves and your hair!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really does work, & it's easy Having done a lot of braiding, I resisted buying this for years. Then I bought a horse that I'd have to drug every time I want to pull her mane. After suffering thru pulling her mane the hard way 3x(she bordered on dangerous to herself & me), I got one of these. First time I used it she never moved. Never even noticed I was doing anything to her at all. So I'm a convert. Yes, she's a jumper & unlikely to be braided. Not sure I'd use it on a hunter mane or not, but it surely has its place for a difficult horse. Rather expensive, have to see how the blade holds up with repeated use. If you've got a really tough horse, I'd say it's worth the price.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from No More Pulling My TB gelinding hated my pulling his mane. With the Solo Comb I can acheive almost exactly the same effect with no pain for my horse or for me. The first few times I used it he still shook his head as he was expecting me to pull his mane. Once he realized I wasn't going to, he settled right in.The only thing I find with the comb is that you need to keep it oiled. I use the oil for clippers. Otherwise the blade sticks and you accidentally cut hairs you didn't want to as well as it doesn't work smoothly.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy... But not great With a very sensitive thoroughbred, I was excited about the thought of a product making mane pulling a little less of a task. While the solocomb definitely made "pulling" his mane faster and less of a battle, I was not super impressed with the results. Even with back brushing and doing only very small sections at a time, you get a bit of blunt cut.So... faster and easier:yes, same natural results:no.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love it! I had been resisting buying this for years because I thought it was expensive for what is is, but after using it once I wish I had bought it years ago! It took me 10 minutes to do my horse's fairly long and thick mane and it doesn't look cut if you do it just like you would with a pulling comb. And so much more pleasant for the horse!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fast easy mane tool This product is wonderful. It allows you to prep a mane without the pain. Great tool for prepping manes on fussy sensitive horses. If used properly you can not tell if the mane was pulled or this tool was used. Does not leave straight edge cuts in the mane if used properly. Great for a trainer with multiple horses to keep up.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from 10 times faster than pulling! I will never "pull" a mane again after using this product. Also, much easier on horse. Results are excellent!
