I think your question is actually answered here: clipping - how do you know...

Horses are clipped either for showing or to prevent overheating when being worked during the winter/end of winter.

I think im going to be clipping my horse at the end of winter, probably around like april or something. Probably a hunter clip or something full. I'll probably be getting him a nice wool sheet for afterwards that way. Like i need to get him a winter blanket too. lol They always look so good fresh clipped after the winter

Why do you clip your horse?
The main idea is that it's easier to cool them out in the winter/they don't get as sweaty. BUT, make sure to have a blanket (on the colder days)!

I don't think age doesn't matter, but I'm sure it must be really hard to clip a foal! Those little wiggle-worms..but anyways.
