That's what I've been wondering, but I haven't been able to find any specs on grooming Clydes for show. I won't be showing her at halter, but I want her to look as good as possible. Thanks =)

Most definitely leave it. You can't clip a clydie! They are meant to be very hair, and they look bloody good hairy!

Caleighs was 10 inches long. Her bridle didn't fit right because of it and the flies loved it so I clipped it. For that reason I say clip.

I vote leave it, she's absolutely gorgeous! But if you're going to start riding her for the comfort of the bridle I'd say clip. Oy aren't I confusing LOL!

Clip it!

I hate hairy faces so I say clip it. I think it makes them look much more "professional"

If you decide you don't like it clipped, it will grow back and then don't clip it again

I'd say go somewhere in the middle, trim it a little (she is a lady after all) but leave enough that she still has that distinct Clyde look.

Leave it its a sign of his heavy breeding

Hi there I think your horse is very sweet with or without the beard I have a cob with a beard I do trim it back in line with his jawline but his beard is very course hair not silky like your horse I only trim him up in the summer as he lives out nearly all year with a large barn in his field
