So I'm wondering, why would you clip in the summer? Are there specific situations where it'd be a good idea or a bad idea? I'm specifically asking about this as an endurance rider. I hesitate because I wonder if there would even be any benefit or if it might cause issues since I've never seen any other endurance riders in my area do it.
I'm in Idaho, so there's predominantly western riders here, and we don't usually clip our horses in general - but I'd like to know if there's a reason I might want to!
