I rarely ever trim inside a horse's ears anymore...I will clip the long stuff that makes the ear look scraggy, but the hair can protect the ear from all sorts of stuff, including bugs, and blowing dirt and other stuff picked up by the wind.
HOW you remove that excess hair is up to you, but you have to make sure the horse is desensitized to the sound of clippers or scissors before even attempting to clip around his ears, or you may wind up snipping him with the shear, or nicking the ear with the clipper blade.
