Smile Pesky's trace clip:)

I decided to clip my 24 year old quarter horse, Pesky. I don't think she was ever clipped before, but was excellent for it.
Here are some pictures>

Nice. I have a question what is the purpose of a trace clip? I ride western and have a show coming up but am unsure of how to clip my mare.

Thanks, A trace clip makes it so they cool down faster when they've been sweating.
It's one of the more minimal clips, but she does wear a blanket at night when it's still cold.

What kind of clip would you suggest for my mare. Her show is at the end of April.

Here is a picture of her.

How far down do you go? All the way down to their summer coat?

I'm not sure, she doesn't look like she has a lot of winter coat in the picture.
This is the fist time I've ever clipped a big horse or done a trace clip, so I don't really know what would be best.
I do a lot of trail riding walk/trot/canter, but don't show.
There some some good examples of different clips you can do on the internet though.

She hasn't grown a summer coat yet, so the part that is clipped is just very short winter hair

Aw, you guys look great together!

Equus, IDK that western usually clips for shows? Other then the usual muzzle, feet, bridle path....What kind of show is it? She looks like she is pretty sleek as it is! Cutie!

If the world was truly a rational place, men would ride sidesaddle.

It is an ARHA show. American Ranch Horse Association. I went to one to watch in January and noticed that all of the horses were down to their summer coats. I am sure these horses live their lives inside of a stall. Cutter doesn't she is out most of the year. The only time I put mine up is when it is bad weather.

I did a body clip about 6 weeks ago on her. Just to get the long winter hairs off of her. I mainly clipped her legs and her face and her bridle path.

The picture that you all are seeing is I think at summer time.

Than you she is gorgeous. I hope to do well with her this year at the shows.
