I have an OTTB that I am showing in hunter jumper this month. I live in Ohio and I want to full body clip him. Would this effect the shine of his coat? Also would I HAVE to pull his mane? I would hate to be because it's so beautiful! Also any grooming tips you have please share!

When you clip their coat it becomes very dull. I clip mine evry other week through the summer and to help their coats I feed super 14. If they have been on it for a while then within a week of clipping then their coat is shiny and back to their natural color.

Do you do a full body clip? I want to do it to get him ready for show season. But only if he won't look dull

Yes, full body clip, head to toe every 2 weeks on all 7 minis during the summer. Put him on super 14 for a couple weeks and clips 7 to10 day before the show

Usually I start showing in may and start clipping in mid april. I typically start feeding super mid march. Mine are shedding heavy right now.

Brush, brush, brush all week long to bring the oils back up in the coat and showday use something like showsheen or I use healthy haircare silverado shine to really make them shine. Just ne careful putting it under your saddle cause you will slide off the horse! Also, right after clipping them I use healthy haircare hair moisturizer all over and really soak them in it. Then I rub it into their hair and skin with my hands and a soft brush.
