actually I've heard that you don't have to remove the long eye hairs as horses use those in the dark to help them. I've heard judges respect that because it shows respect for your horse. But that's just what I have heard, I don't show. But my mare has long eyehairs and I refuse to cut them.
Anyway as far as body clipping goes, I hate it. I think it looks horrible. It makes them look dull and dirty. But that's just my opinion, and I don't show.
