If you want to clip, do it before the summer coat comes through and the winter coat is coming out.
Apart from that- elbow grease. I don't know of anyone who clips in the summer, if I'm honest, and 70% of people on my yard compete every weekend plus some.
In the winter I can understand, but during summer, just hose the sweat off, the horses love it, and use a sweat scraper to get the excess off.
And derry girl.. I used yardandgroom a year or so back.
I spoke to Peter Weston who isn't too far from me, but I didn't go for the job in the end.
And a rich arab got in touch.. the yard was beautiful.. like dream yard.. and all his competition pictures showed blue eyed, blonde haired grooms.. PASS LOL
I was looking at this job though -In my dreams!! Job 20413 : Talented Dressage Rider Wanted At Galmbacher Sport Pferde Zucht - Germany in Bayern, Germany
