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!

BINGO.

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.

Ride more, worry less.

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.

The essential joy of being with horses is that it brings us in contact with the rare elements of grace, beauty, spirit, and fire. ~Sharon Ralls Lemon

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