    clipping late in the season..

    Hi mini people,
    I have one last show in 3 weeks. I clipped my mare 3 weeks before for another show we had last week, (confusing ) hoping that the clip would last for this show. Her hair grew like a weed, and its not at a pretty length, I am wondering if I should re clip her for the show., and Chico my gelding . Here is the delima:
    We live 1500 meters up in the Swiss alps, and the weather has been cool, even a bit of snow behind us. The show is 2 hours south in Italy where the weather will be very hot. The last show was also in Italy and poor horses were very warm. I have loads of blankets if I do clip , but is it worth it for 4 days?
    Thanks for the advise,

    Here in the US minis are clipped prior to every show, but can't speak for your country, sorry!

    We follow the same rules... but I can have snow when I return from the show . Yuck! I guess that's why I have all those blankets. Even with the grown in summer coat the kids were shivering this morning.
