     A curry comb is a brush. The rubber kind is for use on the horses body. It isn't like a hard or soft brush, instead of bristles, it has little rubber spikes. The metal kind is for cleaning brushes ONLY. It has metal spikes instead of rubber, so should never be used on the horse.

The picture is of rubber curry combs. =)

Loosens dirt, mud and dead hair that lies at the base of the animal's hair coat. Used in a circular motion-it also helps stimulate the animal's circulation (similar  to you rubbing your arms if you're cold).

It looks like that, and a curry comb is a tool made of rubber or plastic with short teeth on
one side. Its purpose is to break up dirt clumps and pull loose hair to
the surface of the coat. It is the first of several brushes used to
groom a horse's coat.
