NEW:    Premium dog brushes

The company William Leistner has been well-known for many decades as a manufacturer of brushes with the best materials for horse care. Now she has used this long experience and has produced a range of high quality brushes for dogs. Through the exclusive use of natural materials such as 100% pig bristles or 100% horsehair, the fur is groomed and a wonderful shine is created. Detangle brushes with rounded and polished pins of beech wood are available to prevent pilling or unraveling.

Our high quality standard demands

Thanks to our 137 years of experience and craftsmanship in making brushes, we produce high quality and durable products.

But we also know:

The quality of a product is only as good as it‘s used materials.
Therefore we only use carefully processed wood from European forests which is sustainably managed. All grooming brushes are made from natural wood. They are PEFC or FSC®-certified. We use wooden backs from beech, cherry or walnut wood.

For our high quality horse brushes we use 100 % horse hair from the tail, 100 % pig bristles or 100 % wild boar bristles. The bristles are specially processed long and tight. This guarantees the best cleaning effect with gently, kind to the skin care and a massage effect such as a high durability of our brushes.

All high quality grooming brushes in size "b" are dome shaped (to the middle of the brush longer bristles) to provide close contact to the coat.

We guarantee that you always get consistent best quality. Therefore the company Leistner equips all with 100 % horsehair or 100 % bristles reported body brushes with excactly 100 % horsehair or 100 % pig bristles. Unfortunately competitors name their brushes also horse hair grooming brushes but they often consist of 10 % till 30 % horse hair of the mane or even worse: they consist of cow hair. And the quality of horse hair differs in their quality. We only use best quality from the tail not from the mane. This explains the price difference.

Many of our other brushes are equipped with 100 % natural fibres "Union" or "Fibre" because the have advantages instead of synthetic bristles.

Advantages of Leistner Brushes

Cleaning equipment for horses

Why is regular brushing with good brushes so important?

Daily grooming of your horse isn’t only an annoying work to clean the coat, but it intensifies the bond between horse and rider. The horses feel it as a pleasant massage and man can escape from his everyday stress rather quickly. Moreover the rider can notice changes of the coat/skin or signs of illness which can be treated immediately.

When it comes to horse care, skin is often neglected as the horse's largest organ. The skin is like a protective coat and fulfills several important tasks. It serves for mechanical protection, regulates the water balance and the body temperature and is involved in sensory perception.

Fungi and pathogens can settle on the skin only if their natural acid mantle is permanently disturbed. The daily care of the horse should be done wisely. Careful removal of sweat and dirt is especially important in horses that have no opportunity to roll after riding. The incorrect use of hard curry combs or brushes can irritate the protective coat of the horse's skin and thus lead to eczema or allergies.

This can be prevented by using horse grooming brushes with natural materials. Unfortunately, today relatively expensive plastic "brushes" are offered from a single source throughout the trade, which with seasonal colors en masse find their young customers and does not think about what happens when you regularly brush with sharp plastic "bristles" on the Horse skin goes. It is of course handy if you can wash these "brushes" in the washing machine. But would these shoppers also scrub over their own heads every day?
