Absorbine is currently the only grooming product sponsor of the only national organisation for professional grooms of all disciplines, the British Grooms Association (BGA)
The BGA was set up to provide a national association for grooms of all disciplines. It is now in its sixth year and has helped 1000’s of grooms over this time, raising the profile of grooms. The BGA is constantly working to get grooms more recognition and to improve their working environment.

What are the BGA’s aims: • To offer dedicated support and advice to grooms • To increase groom’s skills recognition and job status • Achieve modernisation of grooms’ working conditions • Build a sense of community in the grooms’ population • Stabilise the recruitment and retention issues in the equestrian workforce
