    I was wondering what everyones opinion is on clipping.
    I've never clipped a horse but i'd like to start clipping my thoroughbred this season.

    Any tips for me?
    Prices on clippers, anything really.

    Good body clipping clippers will run you upwards of $150 at least.
    I've never clipped my horse, but I've clipped ponies before. My advice: Practice... but not before a show :]

    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.

    I used this website when I was deciding what clip to do on my horse. Though I never actually went through with it.

    I like the explanations they give you too.

    Okay thanks everyone. I don't want to do a full body clip. My horse is good with clippers. He tries to eat em haha. I'll check out the website and see. Hopefully I can try and buy a pair of clippers.
