Is this true??

The owner of the barn (who rides paints and quarter horses, therefore doesn't body clip) saw me body clipping my horse. I didn't leave hair on his back where the saddle goes, I clipped it off.
She told me I can't ride him until his coat grows out more, because it will be prickly on his back and he'll freak out.
Is this true?

Riders aren't 16 and pregnant. Riders are 16 and arthritic.

Hey, I know every1 has there own ways of doing things but personally iv never heard of not been able to ride a horse just after its had a full clip. Since I got my first pony iv always got them a full (all over) clip every year when they were in work. Never had an issue with them been irritated by it. I know your meant to give them a we wash after just to lift of any oil that came of the clippers and after that your grand.
Its up to yourself, if you find your horse tickly or irritated maybe let them of work or lunge for a wk, just till a we bita hair grows back and its sitting flater.. good luck

So have you never clipped your horse before? I'm just a little confused because your post seems to read like this is something you do all the time, yet you are also asking if you can/can't ride afterwards due to the clipping. Have you never clipped and ridden before this? If you have, how did he react? It just seems like something you would know either is or isn't going to be an issue for this particular horse from previous experience.

You can ride your horse. It is not true. People come up with the goofiest things.

...Why can't you clip a paint? Will the colors blend?

I'm genuinely curious. But I also figure that maybe at one point in time there has been a horse who would be bothered by riding after a trim, but I doubt most horses will behave that way.

Step one: Mount horse. Step two: Stay mounted.

Im also wondering what you mean when you say that? Why would it matter whether the horse is a Paint or a QH for that matter? No, it shouldn't be bad to ride him.

I think what she means is she rides at more of a western barn, with non-showy horses that don't get clipped. (I am in no way saying that Paints and QH don't show, so lets no blow me up on that.)
