    With the shampoo, it might be different for your boy, but I always made sure I washed it off completely, and he still had that reaction. I've yet to try an organic/anti-allergic one yet, so I don't know if that will change...

    That's fair enough if your trainer doesn't want yu to put anything on him. I only suggested as that's what I did with my arab, showsheen, and it really helped soften up and give some moisture to his coat :]

    Have you ridden him since? How did he go?

Even when we trailered him from the lady's house where we bought him to the barn were at now with all the new horses(and he arrived at the ladies house only an hour before that..) and we rode him THAT day, he was fine... unexperienced, but still a good sport. I want to go on a XC schooling Thursday, but I don't know if its such a good idea to ride him until his hair grows back in more and he's less sensitive? I don't know though, this is my first time to clip a horse... I don't want to NOT get back on him, but I gave him a break this time because of all the comotion that happened today... But IDK... I hope he doesn't encorperate that to "I can buck her off whenever I want" -.-

    I don't think it had anything to do with the clipping. As a kid I had two ex-race horses. The first one would be a perfect gentlemen in the arena. I could do anything with him. BUT outside of the arena he would begin rearing & refuse to stop. At the time we were not experienced enough to retrain an ex-race horse for trail riding, so we sold him to a hunter jumper person. The second horse must have had an extremely bad gate accident, given the huge indentation across his forhead. On the ground he was a sweet heart, on his back , well I never stayed on his back. Needless to say we gave him to a more experienced person.

    I don't know how long you have had him, but if trail riding has never been a regular activity for him and you I would suggest first leading him through trails to desensitize him, or if you prefer to have someone else train him them get a good trainer.

    I rode him Tuesday, Wednesday and yesterday and he was perfectly fine. He has a lot more energy which is what we want, but he's not "crazy" or anything. I think he was just pissed off at me for clipping him; I should of took his "warnings" into consideration instead of shrugging them off... He was acting weird to start with and I think he just couldn't take it anymore.

    Thanks for the advice everyone! I'll see how he does in the show Sunday and let you all know how he does around all the comotion(if we even have the show... can you believe it's going to snow?!? In Oklahoma nonetheless!)
