I have been searching through the old threads and want to know exactly what I am getting into as it tends to get cold here in the winter and I know nothing about clipping...

The only reason I am bringing it up is because I am taking my horse for a 30 mile competitive ride in a week and a half and I am worried he won't dry fast enough but then I am worried since this is our only big ride that he will be cold the rest of winter... should I just take the extra time to towel dry him and blanket him to warm up and not clip or clip and blanket alot during the winter.?? Keep in mind he is out 24/7

Thanks for your input its appreciated :)

If he's out all the time I would not clip him. I would however after your ride but a cooling sheet on him until he is cool and dry to prevent him getting a chill.

That sounds like a good idea. Thanks
