Wednesday News & Notes from Haygain

Got to spend some quality time Compton Cowboys thanks to Andis Company. Teaching them techniques that can turn into career paths in the feature🙌 Horse and Rider Books

Posted by World Class Grooming for Horses on Sunday, March 27, 2022

World Class Grooming has been on a whirlwind California tour, making a stop to visit with the Compton Cowboys recently in collaboration with Andis Grooming. I remember when World Class Grooming for Horses was first released, and how quickly it became a handbook for horse care and grooming that transcended disciplines. The topics taught in the book, which is the brainchild of top grooms Emma Ford and Cat Hill, are universal and it’s really cool to see the concepts being spread about outside of our little eventing community, too!
