Advantages of Leistner brushes
The quality of a product is only as good as it‘s materials used. Therefore we only use carefully processed wood from European forests which is sustainably managed. All grooming brushes, apart from one sort of wash brushes, are made from natural wood.
The wood is available in brown grained, clear or colour lacquered or a natural finish. In our organic series, they are treated with beeswax.
Our synthetic bristles are made from PPN, they are of very high quality and stay in shape.
Coat and skin of the horses are thankful for a care with a brush with pure horsehair or pure bristles. For example as a bestseller with horsehair you can buy the brush »Pik As«. If you wish to buy a brush with extra tough bristles »Pik König« could be your one. Another good choice are horse grooming brushes with pure wild boar bristles, which are especially stiff and dense. They remove all dust and draw oil from the coat to the surface for a fabulous shine. You can choose between size b brush »Anthony« or size c brush »Esprit« (Two-Way-Brush). The company William Leistner uses only the best horsehair and high quality bristles from the pig or wild boar for the high quality horse grooming brushes. Horsehair has the advantage of a high resilience, this means it goes back to its original shape.
A leistner brush is a durable purchase with appropriate care. Therefore the company Leistner equips all with pure horsehair reported body brushes with 100 percent horsehair. Pure horsehair also has two other advantages: it doesn’t have sharp and burred edges like synthetic bristles. Furthermore they are not charged electrostatically. All grooming brushes in size “b” are dome shaped to provide close contact to the coat.
Pure horsehair with a double high edge removes the last remainders of dust and gives the coat a beautiful shine.
The better the product, the better the outcome care. Despite further increases in raw material prices, 41 body brushes of our product range are fitted with 100 % pure bristles and 100 % pure horsehair. The extra long and dense bristles get easily the dirt from the coat. There are up to 600 bundles per brush what causes a huge dirt absorption. Pure bristles and pure horsehair can remove significantly more dirt particles than synthetic bristles due to their structure (never as smooth as synthetic bristles).
- So they groom:
- without skin irritation
- without charging electrostatically
Of course the company Leistner also offers horse grooming brushes with a cheaper mixture of snythetic and pure horsehair/bristles for example »Ruby« or »Lucky«. But in these the proportion of horsehair/pure bristles is so high that you can see it to the naked eye. Synthetic bristles and cheap mixtures with low proportion of horsehair have a high gloss. Our mixture has a matte gloss because of the high proportion of horsehair. Imaging you buy a horse grooming brush which is fitted with mixtures of bristles and synthetic belts. It also has a premium seal. But this seal does not transform the brush to a premium body brush.
How to clean horse grooming brushes?
Even natural fibers can significantly absorb more dirt due to the natural structure. So it is necessary to clean the brushes from time to time. Horse grooming brushes can be washed and disinfected without problems even brushes with wooden backs. After wasching them for example with a little bit of human hair shower gel they should be thoroughly shaken and placed on the bristle side for drying.
