Yeah I was going to practice, me and my trainer want to clip a couple of our show ponies and we have a little minature that we can practice on haha. Since she doesnt show. She's just a hack aruond lesson pony.
What all do I need to know? Like I know theres types of clippings, but exactly what are their purposes for each?
Which one should I do?
Are you talking a full body clip? That definitely takes a lot of practice! And even more practice to do it well. But it isn't hard to learn to clip ears/whiskers/legs. -assuming your horse is ok with it. I'd start from there. That's usually all I do for shows unless it's the dead of winter and I'm going to an A show with a woolly mammoth.
