Why We Love This

"Der Gute" curry, which translates into "The Good One", effectively massages the horse’s back and removes stubborn dirt. For most grooms this is also a must-have to swipe the dirt and dust of their brushes during the cleaning process. The comfortable leather handle is incorporated in the design of the strong back without any glue, tacks, or foreign materials. It can easily be cleaned in light soapy water without changing shape. 
Favorite Features:
  • Durable enough to withstand life at the barn
  • Removes the toughest of caked on mud
  • Great for cleaning dirt out of brushes
  • Comfortable leather handle

What Customers Say:
Haas Der Gute Curry Comb is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 36.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Der Gute-Best for cleaning brushes while grooming! I studied many articles on Haas Grooming Brushes when looking for brushes for my sensitive red head mare. I read that the Der Gute Curry Comb is stiff for use to clean the body brush during grooming every few strokes and tapped to remove the debris, so it doesn't build up in the brush and go back on the horse. If a horse is not sensitive, it can also be used on the horse, but Haas has another curry that is soft for use on the horse and my mare accepts it. It is called the Striegel New Generation Soft Curry Comb. Perhaps Smartpak will look into stocking it. The reason that soft black rubber curries (that most of us have used for years) are not good for the horse is that they pull at the hair and skin because the rubber is not slick, but "sticky" which can damage the hair and be uncomfortable for the horse. A soft, but slick plastic curry like the Striegel New Generation Soft Curry glides over the horse, but still loosens shedding hair and dirt, which falls off with a tap on the sole of one's boot or fence rail, etc. The Der Gute is getting bad reviews because it is not being used in its intended manner! My mare is really liking her grooming sessions with the Haas Brushes, (body brushes used in order from stiff to soft.) I use both curries as described. Yes, they do make more noise than rubber curries, but we both got used to it. I still use a rubber glove with nubs to curry her legs if needed. The shine improves with each step. Her stall with mats and bedding goes un-slept in as she has access to a large dirt turnout with a deep sand area where she rolls 2-3 times a day and also takes naps. She is always dusty, except right after a bath in warm months. Her fly sheet lets dust through. She has fine hair and sensitive skin so it's great she now enjoys being brushed. My previous horses (over the past 50+ years) and I always loved grooming time and I was missing that connection with my mare.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sensitive horse loves it I was worried my horse (who is a little sensitive to rough grooming) wouldn't like this because it's hard and rigid, but he actually loves it and it does a great job for a great price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simply the best! As a groom, I have used more curry combs than I can count. I went back and forth about purchasing this curry comb because I didn't think that my horse would like the rigid plastic that this is made of. Well, I was wrong because my mare clearly LOVES this curry comb. As soon as I start using it on her, she puts her head down and starts to yawn, lick, and chew- she is instantly relaxed! It is great for pulling up hair and dirt, which doesn’t get entangled around the curry comb like it does around the rubber nodes on other curry combs. It also is a great tool to use to remove dirt/hair on other brushes as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Seriously Der Gute! I was a little bit put off by the fact that this curry comb is a rigid plastic, but actually it works better than rubber curries. It's almost like a shedding blade, but softer. Loose hair doesn't collect in the comb, it lets go of it as soon as you take the comb off your horse. Like it said in the description, it also works well as a brush cleaner too. It's just super good, 10/10 recommend.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from My horse loves it This is a very hard, thin plastic. It doesn't bend to conform to the horse's body like the rubber or softer plastic curries do. I was very skeptical when I opened the box but decided to try it anyways. Thank God I did because my horses LOVE this. I don't know how but it pulls up all the deep dirt and dust even in thick winter coats. It pulls up at least twice as much dirt as the standard black rubber curries. I gave it 4 stars because isn't comfortable in your hand as the plastic is so hard. But it's worth that to see how happy and clean it makes my horses!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Crazy good curry comb! I bought this curry comb to replace my rubber one that got worn down from a *lot* of use. At first, I thought it looked kind of plastic-y, but my big draft cross absolutely LOVES it. He relaxes as soon as I start using it and really can't get enough. Highly recommended. Great value!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good so far I’ve only used this for 2-3 weeks. I bought this after my long time black rubber curry comb’s handle broke. I was skeptical about plastic, but so far it curries well and cleans my brushes. My horse seems fine with it and that’s why I gave it five stars.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great curry comb My horse loves it when I use this curry comb, especially on his back. Very well made.
Date published: 2021-08-25
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice Curry It's not flexible, but sometimes that's what is needed with that additional elbow grease. My mare likes it, so it's good enough for me. It's also super handy to clean my other brushes with.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Too hard Plastic is very stiff with sharp ridges and teeth. Both my horses hate it. Much too rough. Not what I expected, esp for the price
