Some people clip certain areas for riding in the winter. We clipped Hunter that year because he takes sooo long to shed out and when he is hairy like a yak he takes forever to cool down and dry out.

Clipping isn't just for English, I think western clip too :)

Pros~ horses don't sweat so much when working
~ sweat dries off quicker
~ looks smarter for shows
~ easier to keep clean
~ less shedding in spring
~ horse is comfier without tonnes of fur when working
~ easier to see any cuts or sores they might get
~ can help prevent rain scald as hair doesn't hold moisture as long

Cons- Have to rug up more
- some horses don't like clippers
- interferes with their natural thermostat
There could be more pros and cons, but I havent come across them yet

All of the horses and Donkey look great!

I have been bumped and bruised, but my horse is still my best friend!

LOVE everyone's ponies!! The difference is always so dramatic.

This is Scout, our 2 year old Gotland gelding. Didn't snap a shot of him just before his first clip this spring, but he has a really evident two-stage shed... First, he loses the whispy woolies of winter, then he takes his time shaking out this thick bison coat, similar to the OP's pony. The before was sometime around January/February of this year. The after was less than 12 hours after his first clip ever, 1 hour before entering his first show ring ever - lol! Good little pony to cart my kid around so well. The third pic is a month later, having finally shed out that burnt clipped hair.
