I have been wondering recently what the best way to clip is. I live in Manitoba and it is anywhere from -20c (-4F) to -45c (-49F) in winter. My horse is at home until January when I bring her to a barn with an indoor arena. I have never clipped her before but I always run into the problem that she gets super sweaty and if I ride in the morning (only on weekends) I have to leave her inside all day because she is so wet. This year I am hoping to clip her about a week after I show up (time to adjust) but I only want to clip her neck, chest area, and where the saddle goes but leave the girth unclipped. Just in the places where she sweats the most. I will then have a light blanket on during the night (warm inside) and then put on one or 2 winter blankets(with a neck cover) for the day depending on how cold it gets.
I guess my question really should be, what kind of clippers are good? I have never owned clippers before and I don't want to end up buying ones that don't work good. I want this to be as pleasant of an experiance as possible for both of us.
