Smart Manes



The humane way to tidy and thin manes.

The Smart Manes Thinning & Tidying Rake thins out an overly thick mane quickly and effortlessly. They are perfect for tidying horses that usually react to traditional pulling methods and they work on even the most sensitive of horses.

There are 3 grades to choose from depending on the finish and density of hair being tamed!


Great for a more natural finish. Good for coarse/wiry types of mane. The teeth are spaced out more widely allowing thick hair to pass through more easily. (12 teeth)


Perfect for the average unruly mane, this will cope with medium to soft hair. (18 teeth)


Suitable for very soft manes and for manes which have already been tidied. (23 teeth)

Brush through the mane first to ensure it is tangle free. Do not apply any detangling products prior to taming. Put the mane over onto the “wrong side”. This means you are thinning the mane from the underneath. Comb through with a Smart Manes starting at the top of the neck, one stroke at a time working down. Once you have reached the bottom flick the mane back over to right side, brush through and check out your handy work. If the mane requires more taking out of it, repeat the steps above.

Please note, the Smart Manes rake will thin the hair very quickly so be careful not to remove too much hair in one go as this can cause the hair to grow back rather spiky. If you want to thin out the mane considerably it is best to do this over several weeks.

Replacement blades are available and are easily changed. It is best to change the blades on a flat surface to ensure correct alignment.

Including the handle these rakes are approx 18cm long. The rake part is approx 7cm wide.
