I have a lovely RMHA gelding who grows enough hair for an Alaskan winter; but we live in 'Bama! Our weather here is bipolar; can be in the 70's one day and 30's the next in winter!
This past October at the 2018 HF Meet-Greet-Ride the weather warmed up to t-shirt weather and my poor Chivas got overheated causing us to not be able to ride as far or as fast as we normally do. Plus stressing me out as I was very worried about his health.
So I realized that I will have to clip him and keep his clip maintained every year, or I won't be able to ride like I want to.
Plan to do a trace or blanket clip, mainly because with my long work hours it is hard to rotate blankets much.
So why do I need advice? Well...I have no electricity at the barn, and so will need a cordless clipper capable of body clipping a horse every month or so.
The cost a lot of money, and I want something I can use that will work. Chivas has never had a clipper used on him and I have never clipped a horse before...when I was showing horses always just paid a pro to clip, which is no longer an option
Any advice on clippers and/or techniques??
