Why We Love This

StripHair® Gentle Groomer™ offers multi-purpose functionality to groom, shed, shampoo, slick, shine & massage all sensitive areas of your horse or dog's body - safely! Remove loose hair, dirt & dander plus add shine to the coat. Replace your brush, curry, sweat scraper and shedding tool with The Award Winning Gentle Groomer for horses and pets!

Now choose from two levels of flexibility with the StripHair® Original or StripHair® Sensitive. The Original version flexes but provides greater resistance making it a great option for horses who prefer more pressure when being groomed or massaged. The Sensitive version has greater flexibility and is ideal for horses with sensitive skin or those who prefer less pressure while being groomed.

Hassle-Free Returns

SmartPak Returns

We put our products to the test in our barns and on our horses, so we're confident that you'll be thrilled with your purchase. However, we know that life in the barn can sometimes be unpredictable. That's why we've created a stress-free return policy. If you purchase an item and it doesn't meet your expectations, we want to know about it, take care of you and give you your money back.

Free Return Shipping on all Sized Items

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'!).

The Fine Print

We love our products and we're happy to take them back - even custom items. We'll happily take back everything from engraved halters to personalized jackets - even embroidered blankets that have been worn (minus the manure, please). But there are a few things we have to restrict returns on (silly federal regulations).

Undergarments
Health regulations require that undergarments (including bras) need to be in new condition (tags and packages intact) in order to be returned. (Even if it wasn't required, do you really want to shop from a store that takes back used undergarments?!)

Saddles
As riders, we know what a big investment a saddle is. That's why we're proud to offer the best Test Ride program in the business. You can keep our Test Ride saddles risk-free for five days, to really make sure you like the fit and the feel. We know that to truly try a saddle, you have to really ride in it. So go ahead and girth it up. Forget about wrapping your stirrup leathers. Try it with or without a saddle pad. Basically, treat it like you already bought it, so you can make sure you really want to. Because when you buy a saddle from us, we want to make sure you love it. Of course, we want our other customers to love their new saddles, too.
That's why we have a Test Ride option for each saddle we carry - so that all of the other saddles can stay in pristine condition, waiting for their new owners. For this reason, if you purchase a saddle outside the Test Ride program, it's still eligible for return, but must be free from any marks or damage.

So that's it. Seriously. Those are all of our "rules." Well, except the most important one - treating our customers the way we want to be treated. So if you have any questions or if there is anything we can do, please call us at 1-800-461-8898 or email CustomerCare@SmartPak.com. We are always happy to help.

    StripHair® Gentle Groomer™ is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 20.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does the job I was able to shed my horse in recorded time plus it helps to get the dirt out from the coat. I was so impressed I went around the barn and used it on the other horses.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from BEST GROOMING TOOL EVER! Forget a shedding blade, a brush, a sweat scraper; Stop worrying about being COVERED from head to toe in horse hair and dander! Clean your saddle pads prior to putting them into your laundry (your mom will thank you) ...The StripHair does it all. My head-shy horse LOVED having his ears groomed with the StripHair ...so much so, he was almost purring!
    Date published: 2019-04-23
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great Saw this last year and put off buying it because it’s so expensive for essentially a piece of rubber but I decided to try it. It works great and gets so much hair so easily. I have multiple different tools for shedding but this is probably my favorite. The best thing about this tool is that dirt doesn’t get stuck to it and prevent hair from being removed like metal shedding blades. Also nice that you don’t have to stop every few brushes to remove hair from it like regular rubber currys. Would buy again

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow, too excited At first I thought it may have been a waste of money. But then I started to use it correctly ha ha and it turned out to be amazing. I think this thing was pulling hair from the other side of my horse! It’s wonderful and worth the money just please give yourself a chance to use it correctly before leaving an ugly review.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from What a waste of $40 I do not get the positive reviews on this product. I love grooming and I love grooming tools (you should see my grooming box!), but the StripHair is worse than worthless. First, it smells AWFUL. It's like bringing a chunk of a used car tire into your home, car, tack room, wherever. It stinks up wherever it is. Second, there is just no comfortable way to hold the StripHair. To use it at a 45-degree angle as instructed, I have to grip it sort of sideways, and it's so narrow that my hand rapidly cramps up. Mind you, I groom vigorously for about an hour a day; my grooming muscles are in good shape. This is just badly designed. Third, even in damp weather it created a ton of static and shocked the heck out of me and my horse. I have a lovely OTTB who adores being groomed but reacts rather dramatically to being shocked. You can largely negate this problem by holding a dryer sheet with the rubber strip, but that makes it even harder to hold on to. I would put up with those flaws (albeit reluctantly) if the StripHair were effective, but holy guacamole, this is perhaps the most useless grooming tool I've ever bought. It is good at ONE thing, and that's scrubbing away caked-on mud. But it's no better at that one thing than a cactus cloth, or a rubber curry comb, or a pair of Hands On gloves. For removing dirt and hair? Nope: I get next to nothing off my horse when I use this, and he is unclipped and in full-on shedding mode. I've tried using the StripHair first; I've tried using it after a curry comb or Hands On gloves or a Posture Prep curry; I've tried using it at every angle I can come up with. It is simply not effective. I also tried it on two dogs and had similar non-results with both – except that it shocked both of them. Save your money. Or if you really want to spend $40, go buy yourself TWO pairs of Hands On gloves. This product is a piece of junk.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favorite shedding tool I've tried the Equigroomer, the Sleek EZ, traditional shedding blades, and the Strip Hair is my favorite of all of them. I don't worry about blades getting dull like with the other kinds and the StripHair is gentle enough to use on face and legs without irritating my horse. And it just plain does its job as a shedding tool really well.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Oh the dirt The amount of dirt that this product gets off my horse is insane! It looks like nothing is there then next thing you know a pile is coming offf his skin. It gets deep into his coat and is still extremely gentle for my sensitive QH. I love it!!!
    Date published: 2018-10-25
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Throw your brushes away I've fallen in love! This is by far the best grooming tool on the market. It's perfect on my sensitive QH! It has taken all the hair off my wooly mammoth of a pony. It's also worked wonders on my stiff older boy by using it as a massage tool. I love that it fits in my pocket and its perfect for my saddle bags. I'm actually ordering a second one to keep in my trailer it will be perfect for days when we swim! It's a brush and water scraper all in one.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good for sensitive horses This is the first grooming tool other than a soft brush my sensitive chestnut thoroughbred will tolerate. It gets out the mud, dust and loose hair, and he almost smiles while I groom him. Great tool.
    Date published: 2018-10-10
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE this grooming tool!! Spendy but worth it! This is a fantastic tool and it is my go-to! Great for pretty much anything and takes less force to get off tough dirt and sticky sweat marks. The horse appreciates a gentler approach and I love to have one tool that I can use on body, legs and face! Cleans up easily, too. The only thing I do not like is that sometimes it slips out of my hands. Might just be me, though. ;)
