So, I just want to say that I LOVE this pics :) I've never clipped (new to horse ownership), and I don't show or anything. I just wondered what the grooming would involve for a full body clip?

On a side note: To everyone who doesn't agree with body clipping, maybe this thread isn't for you?? If you ask a man who shaves his head bald if he itches, what do you think the answer would be? I have shaved many heads and the clippers don't pull, or itch. I just get a kick out of people who just want to start something

Keep the pics coming :) I'm enjoying them ;)

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.

This picture was taken a couple of years ago. when she was in work and jumping in competition at least once a week. It is an extreme example of what can be done but we took off enough hair to keep her comfortable when working (this was equivalent of a blanket clip in area of hair removed) Now bear in mind that some of the shows were going on until 10pm or 11pm. You don't want a sweaty horse soaked through to be boxed and driven in an open backed trailer in freezing temperatures or have to walk a horse off at the end of the how for an hour before boxing.



Here was her at a show a couple of weeks later but as her coat was growing so fast at this time, the design was alreading fading (sorry about the pic size



This was her yesterday modelling a paint stencil looking fairly chubby and unclipped and barefoot as she is not in work at the moment (she is not for sale BTW)

Well, you must not ride very much during the winter.

What is cruel is having a horse work in a heavy fur coat, sweat until it is wet, then have to stand in the cold with wet hair that takes forever to dry. A real recipe for hypothermia. Clipping allows the sweat areas to dry quickly letting them get warmer quicker. No one here clips a horse without being committed to blanketing when it gets cold.

Your horse can still be in "top" competing shape and not have to have a hard work out. And i didnt say "not to work with them", i said not to work them hard. And you can do it. Simple as that.

"cruel"? How is that cruel? You dont have to make a horse "sweat until its wet". I ride in the winter a lot and NO way am i giving my horse a clipping. I just dont make him "sweat". I give him a good work out not hard. They are always down to the point on what i want to do, getting ready for shows. I think its just not right to clip horses and in my opinion it doesnt look nice, it looks un natural.
