I have "stolen" my husband's clippers and used them on the horses. They do ok. Not great but ok on muzzles, ears, around the eyes (Arabians clip close around the eye socket). They tend NOT to be any good for bridle paths, the motors just are strong enough to push through a long bridle path. I had to take scissors, cut it down short, wash it really well, put conditioner on it, rinse it out and the spray Show Sheen on it and that helped me to get a good clean look, but it took forever compared to horse clippers. They'll trim up around the coronet band pretty well, again gotta be squeaky clean, and around the chestnuts but no good at all for a big job.
