This Massage Comb Wash Pad is a two in one cleaning accessory, connecting to your hosepipe/water tap you can pass water directly through the pad for washing a horses body, legs, and face in a controlled manner using the built-in water flow button.
This is an excellent cleaning accessory for young or nervous horses who may not like a bathing experience when using a traditional hosepipe connector/trigger. We have found for these horses the difficulty in washing them is usually caused due to a lack of control over the water direction coming out of the trigger. Most garden hosepipe triggers typically have either a stream/jet function or a fan that option which directs water in all directions, not very helpful when working with young or nervous horses!
The Massage Comb Wash Pad allows you a comfortable, one-handed operation and provides your the freedom to bathe your horse quickly and easily. The ergonomic one-size-fits-all design straps securely to either hand and the slim and flexible sprayer fits neatly within the palm of your hand reducing stress for anxious pets as you have far greater control of the water direction.
With the Massage Comb Wash Pad, the water flow can be controlled in the palm of your hand, resulting in less water being accidentally sprayed around, causing a horse to spook while cleaning and you not having to walk back and forth to the tap when in use.
On the front of the wash pad, you will see 14 water outlets, and next to these you will find small flexible nibs similar to what you would find on a rubber curry comb; these teeth are great are combing through hair while still be super soft and flexible enough not to cause discomfort for the horse and to reduce tugging at the hair reducing hair breakages and knotts.
Connect the Massage Comb Wash Pad to the tap and turn on the water, then adjust the water flow using the built-in grey button on the wash pad to the required level, you can control water flow from an off position, through to a drip and then fully open for a soak/shower pattern. After the horse’s coat is wet, turn off the water flow and apply shampoo as usual.
With the water flow now turned off, you can use the nibs on the wash pad just like a rubber curry comb and massage the shampoo into the horse’s coat, producing a great lather to aid in shampoo cleaning. When ready, turn the water flow back on to rinse the shampoo out. The Massage Comb Wash Pad is made from a silicone mold, so the unit is flexible, lightweight, super soft and easy to hold in the palm of your hand thanks to the adjustable stab and buckle design, making this ideal for children and adults and use in either hand.
The pipe connections are reinforced with spring adaptors to ensure a kink-free pipe connection at these important parts and ensure a steady water flow when the pad is in use. The piper is approx 2.5m long (6ft) and comes complete with a standard UK hosepipe quick release connector, black tap connector, and a white funnel connector for indoor taps; there is also a blue step down threaded connector included for use on the black tap connector, however, for UK customers the black and grey connections will likely be the choice of connector to your outdoor water tap.
