"Mia and I would like to thank you very much for the Solo Kit we won last month. We used it today on one of Mia's 3 ponies, Bertie, her veteran Exmoor X. He has a thin mane near his withers, but it's very thick up towards his poll.

The Solo Rake was excellent for thinning Bertie's mane out first; and the Solo Comb made light work of shortening it. I very quickly got used to how it works, and did Bertie's mane in record time.

Bertie hates his mane being pulled, but once he realised after back combing there was no pull, he settled and stood like a rock for the job.

The fabulous Solo Brush has been fantastic on getting Bertie's winter coat out; and its self clearing design means no more struggling to pull hair out of a brush before using it again.

I would very highly recommend the Solo Kit; we can't wait to try it on the other ponies."

"Thank you so much your Solocomb is fab.

Teddy came to us a very nervous young man, he’s tickly and gets worried easily.

Mane pulling was never an option. Thanks to the Solocomb, a gentle, kind and highly efficient way to shorten his mane, he stands happily whilst I do it. "

"My trainer had been pulling his mane, a mane thick and unruly, mane like that of a Shetland pony. My mind drifted back to a scene at the barn where a drugged white pony stood helpless, head down, while three adults pulled her mane out by the roots. As far as I’m concerned, that is what nightmares are made of.

“You should get one of these,” said a nearby rider as I tried unsuccessfully to brush Major’s mane.

I couldn’t rest until I had my hands on a Solocomb. Never again would any of my horses be subjected to what I consider this inhuman treatment. The Solocomb has tamed my thoroughbred’s abundant mane and we now use it on my Welch pony, whose mane is even thicker and longer than Major’s. We keep their manes under control during the winter, but during show season, the Solocomb gets put to the ultimate test. Major and my pony, Major Minor, are eventing/dressage horses and the Solocomb even makes braiding for events easier.

Thank you Solocomb from me and especially from my horses."

"My two homebred ponies were champion and reserve champion Connemaras at the Royal Norfolk Show and I had a lot of lovely comments about their manes and tails so thank you. I feel you helped me produce my ponies in a very humane way. I have attached two photos taken at the British Connemara Breed Show 2013: Kindesella Emma who was the non breeding champion and reserve British bred champion, and Kindesella Moonshine who was the Tam o shanter reserve champion."

"The SoloRake gave a superb pulled look to my pony’s long thick mane. It was really safe and easy to use and he was very happy for it to be done, unlike pulling! It is great for getting rid of any tangles and for thinning. I would highly recommend it!"

"I have used the SoloRake on both my cats and dog and found it to be a really useful tool for pulling out the undercoat. The 'grippy' handle is great to use."

"Having tried other Rakes on the market, I have to say your SoloRake is the best!! The twin head blade design is perfect for all my 20 horses, in particular the Cobs who have very thick manes. I still use my Solocomb that I've had for years, what a great invention."

"The SoloBrush was a complete surprise. I used it on my horses today and it is a lovely tool. I would like to say that it is rare today to find the excellent customer service that you have given to me. You may rest assured that I will pass my excellent experience of your company to my friends and acquaintances in the horsey world. Should the opportunity arise to tell the wider world of your first-rate company, I will most certainly do so."

"My horse was at the time of the year when he was moulting for a past-time, hair everywhere! So I tried my new SoloBrush. It has a contoured handle with a Velcro strap which goes over your hand so your hand stays in place and fits snugly around the brush. It is easy to use as it just twists and locks into place. I started to work in circles over my horse with the brush and was amazed at the amount of loose hair that it picked up! When the brush is full, you just untwist the ‘bristles’ and the hair just falls off – no more annoying picking hair out from in between bristles like you do with a curry comb! The bristles reach through the hair and down to the skin, which my horse really liked ‘cos it was probably like having a mini massage! This brought dirt up from the skin to the surface of the coat so it could be brushed away. All in all I was very impressed with the brush and would definitely recommend them!"

"The SoloComb arrived today. Thanks very much for supporting the quality of your products. I use it often and the horses (and my fingers) are thankful of the great pain free product. After Christmas I'll get a solorake, as it also appears to be a useful grooming tool. Thanks again."

"I'm just writing to say how much I LOVE your products. No matter how much people said mane pulling didn't hurt the horse I saw the discomfort in the horse always dancing around and shaking their heads, I even knew a horse that needed sedation just to have his mane pulled. So when someone at my stables first introduced me to the solocomb, I was so impressed at how gentle it was and yet you could still get that traditional pulled look to the mane. I ran out and bought my own, must be about 5 or 6 years ago. Its still a big part of my grooming kit. I used it on all my horses without any problems. Last year while I was a live in groom for an Olympic rider I was shown the solorake. I bought myself the solorake. I had bought a few untouched Connemara, all came with long, tangled manes, there was no way they would've tolerated mane pulling as they were so nervous. So I went through their manes with the solocomb and solorake, its such a kinder option they let me do my thing and their manes all looked 100 times better when I finished. "

"My hunting mare has a big bushy tail if left unkempt, which is unsightly; I have tried all manner of tail rakes in the past but none of them have stood up to the job and end up in the dustbin after a few uses. I tried a Solorake having been very pleased with their other products in the past and am so thrilled with the results. Not only does the Solorake complete the task in half the time of a standard tail rake, the finish is so much more professional and natural, plus, its so well put together I am confident that I'll still be using it for years to come."

"Thank you! I am very impressed with your customer care to say the least! I will look forward to receiving the new comb and will be very careful if I have to installed new blades, to position the 2 fixing plates."

"I used only a SoloComb to achieve this. The mare is a very sensitive TB and can't tolerate "traditional" pulling, however, fell asleep last night whilst I used the SoloComb!"

"SoloGroom products make mane and tail trimming so much more enjoyable and stress free for both myself and the horses. My favourite product has got to be the SoloComb, it is such a clever design that makes mane pulling so quick and easy! The SoloComb simply 'cuts' the mane at an angle rather than ripping it out, therefore making the experience absolutely pain free for the horses. Manes can be trimmed in half the time it would take using a metal comb and pulling, the SoloComb creates a natural, neat finish. Gone are the days of blistered fingers and fidgety head shaking horses!
The SoloRake is also a really handy tool to have in your grooming kit, I use it every couple of weeks on my Irish-bred horse's super thick mane! The rake thins out his mane to a suitable thickness and length for regular plating. The SoloRake can also be used on the underside of the horses tail to thin it out - useful for very dense tails that get tangled easily!
I wouldn't be without my SoloGroom products, they make a world of difference to everyday trimming with my horses and also my clients."

"Emily is from South Wales and runs a freelance grooming business. She owns 2 horses, which she has broken in and produced herself. She regularly competes in show hunter classes with 15hh Connemara x ISH Rocky, as well as British Dressage at Novice Level. Emily's biggest achievement was being placed 2nd in the BSPS Intermediate Show Hunter Type at Pony of the Year Show (POYS). Emily spends a lot of time trimming manes and tails as well as plaiting between her outings on the weekends and customer visits. Her favourite product is the SoloComb. She would not be without it, especially when trimming up sensitive horses as it is pain free! Emily also regularly uses our SoloRake to thin out Rocky's mane and tail as it is super thick, she also uses the SoloRake to thin out traditional type manes to give a neat natural looking finish. Emily hopes to progress with her BD training and compete at Elementary Level next year. "

"Would just like to say how very very helpful Solocomb has been. Could not get my comb to work, would not cut. Rang and sent out a new one straight away, had the same problem, then had a thought, washed my horses mane, dried it and bingo it worked. Problem down to me using too much mane and tail conditioner on my horse. They were so helpful and did everything to help me sort it, wish other companies were as helpful. Once again thank you."
