I agree, my horse had a bad experience with clippers, it's a very long story but he most likely never overcome the fear even though i've been working with him, we never know when he's going to remember that and just lose it. There's a big difference between them being bad and just saying no, when there is fear involved you want to do it the safest and calmest way possible for everyone's safety and well being.
