I regularly attack my lad with clippers! I can't stand any extra hairs! Don't worry I wasnt saying that you where doing anything wrong with the clippers!
I attacked my lads mane yesterday, pulled alot of it out!
Can you ask lady who had her before if she had ever had a bad experiance? Has she been nicked by the clippers?
Generaly If I have one difficult to clip and I have to do them fast then I get the vet out and sedate them so they are practicaly on thier knees, then clip them, sedalin and mild sedation just doesnt do the same job.
If you have time you can work on it and getting her used to the noise and vibration.
Alternativly do it the alternative way and use sissors and a comb, This takes time, patience and practice but It gives ver good results.
Also In future never leave it this late to clip out legs. I always leave at least 2 weeks after clipping out legs before a show and preferably 3 weeks, this allows for any lines to settle and any bald bits from where the horse moves when you are clipping to grow out to a disguiseable length.
RIDE your horse FORWARDS and keep him STRAIGHT
