About This Quiz

Horses are magnificent and intelligent animals, but grooming is entirely left up to the owner. Having a horse is a commitment that goes deeper than feeding and cleaning out the stalls. To keep your horse healthy, proper grooming is essential. How much do you really know about it? 

From proper hoof care to preventing saddle sores, horse grooming goes far deeper than making a horse look beautiful for a competition. In fact, in order to properly care for a horse, it's recommended that grooming be done every day. In addition to cleanliness, horse grooming gives the owner a chance to check the horse for injuries and irritants like grit or bugs.

After you choose the response you think is correct, we'll tally up your results. Could you be considered a horse grooming expert, or could you use a few lessons?
