My daughter's 10 year old AQHA is starting to grow a nice fuzzy winter coat. We see lots of people clipping their horses for winter, especially the English riders. My dauughter rides both English and Western. We just got this horse and dont' expect to show him at all this winter. He has a good cooler and a nice mid weight waterproof blanket if it gets really cold. Is there any reason why we should consider clipping him aside from appearance? He looks like a disheveled furball with his long mane and forelocks compared to some of the horses in our barn; but I don't see the reason to clip and trim when his natural coat can help keep him warm this winter (you can tell I am totally new to this horsey world). Thanks.
