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'!).

    Essential Brush Kit is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 65.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not as described I have purchased this brush kit multiple times for my horses and I have recommended it to many of my boarders. I recently ordered it again and the bleached Tampico medium brush has been replaced with a much softer smart pak brand medium body brush. The replaced brush is nice, but I don't like it as much as the Tampico brush that usual comes with this kit. Customer service was helpful in resolving the issue as best they could but unfortunately they no longer carry the Tampico brush.

    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.
