Ok, well if it's so unnatural, I'll let my horse get out of eventing condition, won't clip him, take him down to Florida to do a couple events and let him die of heat stroke.

Relax...please...I think I said its my opinion..if I think it looks unnatural it shouldnt effect what you want or you think. Don't get all over me. There are circumstances that I would clip my horse if we were going to a hot area. But, well, I am not. So I wouldnt let my horse be clipped.

It's called not working them to sweat badly and oh my gosh, a COOLER. Wow.

It takes a good couple of hours for a full winter coat to dry from sweating. And You can't do endurance work or a good jumping workout without your horse sweating profusly. It's more likly for the horse to get VERY sick from having a long coat then one that is clipped. A horse that has a long winter coat doesn't dry off in the rain, so if it gets below freezing they can easily catch a bad cold, same when they have a long coat and sweat, they could easily catch a cold. And when they get working hard they can get WAY overheated, and that causes horses to DIE.

Personally, I would love to clip my horses but I don't know how, my horses don't stand well enough, and I don't have the cash to spend on clippers at the moment. But I plan on doing so when I have the $. I try not to work my horses as hard in the winter because they have long coats. However, my horses sweat. A LOT. Doesn't matter how long you work them. So, clipping will be a good option once I have the opportunity.

I'd rather have them "unnaturally naked" than dead :)

^well I have been riding for 5yrs and another friend (shelby) 10yrs. In all that time not one horse has died from getting "WAY" overheatedand we don't clip our horses. So get over it. They arent going to die if you give them a good cool down. So as I said before in MY OPINION I don't like it and it shouldnt matter to you what so ever. I want no comments on this comment b/c everyone needs to not get all over me. Relax.

I give him a good work out not hard. They are always down to the point on what I want to do, getting ready for shows. I think its just not right to clip horses and in my opinion it doesnt look nice, it looks un natural.

Then you, obviously, don't fit the above description.....do you?
