Every horse is going to sweat if you work them, i wouldn't unless you are going to a really super important show and your horse still hasn't shedded out yet

Fevers?? Do you possibly mean feathers (ie on the fetlock)?? If so, you can clip or not, that is up to you.
Sweating while being worked is not necessarily an automatic indicator of having a coat issue - it's an indicator of having worked. People sweat when the they exercise too. I don't see a location in your information - are you in an area that is currently in summer or winter? Is your horse in a normal/sleek coat now or is she haired up to keep warm?

Thoroughbreds have really thin skin and fine coats. I wouldn't clip her just because she's sweating. It's summer! Lol. You may also cause issues with rainrot. I wouldn't clip.
