    I guess my situation was a bit different. The horses owner doesnt ride her in the winter so she was never going to body clip her again once I sent her home. I just needed to get it done in the 2hr window that I was at my friends barn. She actually really liked the lip twitch, she fought it for about 3 minutes then she was great

    Cute pony !

    She is a real darling and a joy to own

    Don't get me wrong, I do understand the usefulness of a twitch and when time is a limiting factor for a rare procedure the means can justify the end. We used a shoulder pinch on the TB when she got a really nasty case of ringworm on her chest a couple of years ago and started dancing around when we tried to put the cream on, but for clipping which is likely to happen 3 times a year year in year out, I think it better to educate to cooperate than use a brute force method.

    I don't look at a twitch as being brute force. It releases endorphins & has a natural calming effect.

    I see it as that as well, but you can make a horse very head shy with the practice when you twitch a lip. This indicates to me that they really don't like it.

    There is a saying - Fool me once shame on you, fool me twice, shame on me !

    They soon associate a twitch with something they would not voluntarily stand for. This is wy I dislike its use with clipping.

    just don't overuse it then =] it doesnt hurt them any, they just don't want someone grabbing thier nose, they don't know whats going on. But they get over it & it can benefit them if you think about it. If someone can twitch a horse then they wont have to resort to beating & cornering as some people do

Wth??? You don't have any time to put "( I dunno the right word-try to understand )sweat-drinking blanket" over your horse and simply walk with him for 10 minutes?
    Imagine wearing a winter coat soaked through in 15F weather. A furry horse won't dry in ten minutes, the pony I used to lease would take hours (no exaggeration, literary 2+ hours) to dry, even with two sweat sheets, two coolers, and plenty of towels. He was fine being clipped and was much happier afterwards.

    ^agree ... I don't get off work till 5 pm and it gets dark by 5:30 so I can't risk my horse getting sick b/c she didn't dry all the way.
