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

Gentle Curry is rated 4.913 out of 5 by 46.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from So glad I gave it a try I am the kind of person who could groom my horse for hours, but unfortunately I have a sensitive TB mare who barely tolerates any kind of touching on her body. I bought this curry (to add to my vast collection of curries) because it was is an excellent price, and I figured it wouldn't hurt to try. I won't say that she loves this curry, or that its fixed our grooming problems, but I will say that while she still gives me plenty of ugly faces over it, she seems to tolerate this curry far better than any of the other curries or curry gloves I have tried. The nubs are nice and soft, and I think that the smaller size is actually helpful because I think the bigger curries were just too overwhelming for her (too much surface area being rubbed at once). I am very pleased to have found a compromise product that is soft for her, even if I do have to curry a little bit longer. The curry itself works great, pulling up dirt and dander just as well as a conventional curry.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from perfect this is the perfect size and is more flexible than standard curries, it does its job and makes my mare the shiniest she can be. :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Curry! I bought this for my sensitive TB and he loves it! I'll never use another curry again. I definitely recommend this if you have a sensitive horse. It gets all the dirt off.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Curry I just received this curry but my horses don't seem to mind it and may even like it. I have two that hate to be curried because they are sensitive but with this one they didn't flinch or make angry faces at all. It also cleans very well!
Date published: 2016-03-03
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very useful - cannot beat the price Very simple product - but oh sooooo useful. Soft rubber fits hand easily, and stays on with or without gloves. My horses seem to love it as well!! For the price, will have one tucked away in all places (tack box, groom stall, wash supplies)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My horse loves this! I love this curry! I use it on his face and it's not too soft, not too stiff. It's gentle enough to curry away loose hair and dirt but tough enough to crack off dried mud. My horse puts his head down when he sees it in my hand. Great price too, just wish it came in other colors.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super soft! My sensitive TB loves this curry, and it is so soft that I can even use it on his legs and face.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My new favorite curry! I love this curry! It works great over her entire body to get out the dirt and grime, but is soft enough to use on her face and legs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT littel curry Love this curry, it stays on my hand and is soft and supple. All the horses like it so now I'll have to get one for each brush box!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AWESOME Gentle Curry. :) This curry is AWESOME! My gelding is sensitive and he did not like the harder curry I was using on him, He seems to like this one! I can use it on his hock without bothering him and I am going to use it on his legs too. I can really get deep down into the coat to lift dust and scurf to the surface of the coat. :) This would also be awesome if a horse was shedding, Just pull horse hair waffles out. :) The Oster fine curry is hard to get hair out of since it is so fine, This curry is just right. :) I give it 2 thumbs up!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Makes my sensitive boy happy to be groomed Super grooming tool: now I can curry my Dutch Warmblood and he enjoys it. Just what I wanted for him - normal curries were always an annoyance to him.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great curry, but he doesn't like it I bought this for my sensitive TB and he doesn't like it. That isn't to say it isn't lovely and gentle, but he doesn't think so. The search continues.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best curry I've ever used! I recently purchased this curry while looking for a rubber curry soft enough for my rescue mare's sensitive skin. She absolutely loves the feel of this curry. She will quiet down and completely relax when I brush her with it. It is very soft and flexible yet still pulls the dust and dirt out of her coat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good for my sensitive mare Just the right size and my uber sensitive mare doesn't scowl about it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good curry! I looked everywhere for a soft curry that was a little stronger than a face curry but not as hard as a regular curry. I also wanted one that wouldn't become really stiff and hard in cold weather. I was really happy to find this one at SmartPak! It stays flexible in winter temperatures and does a good job on dirt. It's a great curry for dirty, muddy legs!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great item! Love if it were a bit larger. I bought this to replace a curry that I had worn out. It is almost exactly what I was looking for only wish it would be slightly larger. Still, it does a great job on legs and faces. I have 3 horses and an item like this is much appreciated to make grooming chores easier.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gentle! My horse always hated being brushed so I switched him to this gentle curry and he finally doesn't swish his tail or pin his ears :) I can tell he really likes it! Nice flexible rubber material!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from love this softer curry! I got this to try for my sensitive paint, he's never really enjoyed being curried (and would occaisionaly flinch his back depending on where I was currying). After searching for a soft curry, I finally found this one and he is SO much happier now. I like that it also stays soft in the cold, some other curries I've had were soft when it was warm, but would harden once cold. I've been using it almost every day for 2 months now, and it's holding up great!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally, a flexible curry! I love that this curry is flexible!  It does a great job of digging up dirt, and my very sensitive Thoroughbred seems to like this curry most of all his brushes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gentle Curry Most effective curry I've come across, raises the dirt w/out the stiffness of most curries. Soft and flexible to handle. I've purchased 4 !!! :~)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My horses favorite curry My horse adores this curry. It has longer rubber nubs than traditional curries. He reacts to this the way he reacts to me scratching him with my nails. Soft enough rubber to use on his whole body & face. The handle fits my adult hand well.
Date published: 2013-09-02
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product Wonderful small curry. Fits in the palm of my hand and bends for hard to curry places such as legs.Much better than my large rubber curry. A must have.
Date published: 2013-06-19
Rated 5 out of 5 by from New favorite curry Perfect to use on legs. One of my horses hates the groom mit kind of curry on his legs, but he stands like a rock and waves his lip for this one. Not sure what the big difference is but I'm really happy to have found something he can tolerate. Easy to clean out with the hose.
Date published: 2013-05-30
Rated 5 out of 5 by from A treat for my horse My horse has VERY sensitive skin and hates to be curried or brushed with hard brushes. This curry has to be one of his favorites. It is soft to the touch and he doesnt glare at me anymore when I go over his sensitive areas. Great for a whole body massage and grooming sessions.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Little Groomer This curry was a bit thinner than I thought from the picture, but it gets the job done. Not so good for long winter coats, but for summer it will be wonderful! Very soft and flexible, so it massages while you groom. My 16 hand draft X is sensitive across his back, and he loves this thing. I bought two as the price was so reasonable; one for each of my horses. Would definitely recommend it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Had 1 Bought 2 More Love this curry, I have a very sensitive mare and I purchased this curry for her. She loved it, so I purchased 2 more. I think they do a much better job then the tradition and are great for scrubing as well:)
