Why? I've never understood what is different about the winter. The horses get a good warm up to warm their muscles, but they work just as hard as they would anyother time of the year. I've never had a problem with it.

Why? My horse needs to be in top compeating shape in the middle of Febuary, and if I just don't work him now, how do I supose to get him all the way back into shape. You can't do it.

Frankly it's much more dangerous to your horse's health to allow him/her a long layoff with limited work. You're just increasing the likelyhood that they'll be injured by letting them do nothing all winter and then expecting them to be in competition shape in the spring. It can take up to a year or more to properly condition a horse properly for competition.

Stencilbum: those are some awesome clips! I'd never of thought of that. That star clip looks like it'd take a long time to do but it's very neat.

As for the whole to clip or not to clip I see it as to each their own (like everything else in life ). Depends on the horse, the work level, and the rider. If horse and rider are happy, life's good.
