So just a general question to every body, this is something that just occurred to me. While my mare is only lightly being ridden right now her work load will increase throughout the winter, she'll be in training 1x a week, plus a couple other rides and lunges on the other days. We will more than likely start cantering her under saddle sometime in the early new year. She's in her stall every night, and has the option of being double blanketed. Turnout is every third day.

So just with that information again would it be best to do something like a trace clip, or go with taking off more hair? I know I kinda already gave that information at the top and received good replies, but remember I know next to nothing about what would be best, etc etc. So trace clip or take more off? I really don't want to spend hours cooling out this mare haha. (we had a problem with that with one mare last winter who wasn't clipped!)
You could try the trace clip? And if she can't cool off properly you know to take more off

Hi, I'm going to thread steal a bit to save making a new thread but I am also going to clip my horse soon and wondered if its ok to do a bib-clip just without the neck being done. I don't really want to take any hair off that I can't cover up with rugs as she lives out 24/7 come rain/snow/shine/ hail etc so is it ok just to do chest and front half of belly?

I don't think sticking strictly to clips is important, it's more about what works for your horse, so I'd say go for it :)

right! Ha, for whatever reason it did not cross my mind that I could just take more off later if it wasn't working.
