We charge about $100 for a full clip. It's a lot of work, lots of time, and wear and tear on your clippers! PLUS oil and coolube, etc. Make sure it's worth your while!

$60 at the very least. Clipping isn't the easiest job =) $20? No way. Lol

Time and wear and tear on your clippers - and your body.

I would also have them sign a release. Horses can move at the wrong time and WHOOPS there goes a chunk of forelock - or hide. You do not need to be 3/4 done and have them decide not to pay you for some reason!

I'd say anywhere from $75-110 is good. ;) Even more, if needed. It really depends on the job- 'cause it can take awhile.

I'm in BC, Canada. And around here body clips are around $100 or more. I've never heard of anyone charging less than at the cheapest $80.

I'd say about 50-70 bucks! Because the horse is probably used to always being clipped because afterall it does have cushings!!!
