First time clipping the baby...

Well, I say baby, she's not really ;D

The previous owner has a picture of Duffy with a hunter clip, she said she was brilliant to clip and just stands.

I don't know how much of that is true, and she's fitter now.

I have no experience of clipping whatsoever. Ever. Apart from the time I tried to put a loveheart on a friends stallion HAHA, I got chased.

Really though, what sort of precautions do I need to take? I have someone coming out to her, I know him from my old yard, and he's alright guy, bit of a knowitall thing but he does well by his horses generally, not 'hands on' if you get my drift...

What can I do to help, what should I be doing and are there any questions I should be asking him???
