Ever been looking for that one brush you love to use while grooming, either in your tack trunk or barn's tack-up area and it appears to have just grown legs and walked away? Well, one adult amateur-owned company has made this headache a thing of the past. Read more about Wellesly Equestrian and the workhorse 'Every Day' Brush.
Wellesley Equestrian is owned and operated by adult amateur rider Carolyn Lavin. Products offered range from personalized brushes and ribbon shadow boxes, to candles, rider apparel and more.
Carolyn sent me the 'Every Day' Brush which I got personalized with my last name so it's easy to spot in the barn and should I leave it out after grooming other boarders and barn staff know whose it is and can put it on or in my trunk -- which is SUPER helpful. Everyone has those times when you're kind of in a rush after a ride, You quickly untack, groom and turn out or return your horse to their stall. You think you've picked up all your stuff but inevitably you've left a brush in the grooming stall. Hey, it happens! The personalization on these amazing brushes remove any doubt as to whose brush it is!
The 'Every Day' brush has a dark hand-stained handle with a personalized brass plate that allows up to 18 characters so even the longer last name or horse names will fit. The synthetic bristles are stiff enough to get the dirt off your horse but are also soft enough to use on their face and more sensitive areas of their body. They are even great to get the grime off of legs!
I've had my every day brush for a few weeks and it's held up wonderfully! No scratches or dings in the wood (even after tossing it into my tack trunk from a few feet away a couple times), the name plate still looks as lovely as the day it arrived -- which was super quick! -- and the bristles have held up to mud after a Florida rainstorm, the post-ride sweat, dirt and grime, and every day equestrian life. The name couldn't suit the brush any better!
The only downside...and I don't even know if I'd call it a downside as I quickly got used to it...is the size of this brush. The 'Every Day' brush is quite smaller than other brushes I've used and most in the grooming product market, But that is by no means to not purchase or use this brush as, like I said, I quickly got used to its size and is super comfortable in my hand.
Overall I give the Wellesley Equestrian 'Every Day' Brush: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
