10 steps to a successful body clip this winter.



You may dread it, but it’s that time of year again: the time when your horse’s winter coat sprouts long, thick and fl uffy. You pull him out for a ride and spend 40 minutes knocking the mud off every part of his body, and another 60 minutes trying to dry him out after your ride. If this situation sounds familiar, body clipping might be just the solution you need.

1 Blanketing

The fi rst commandment of clipping is thou shalt blanket. If you or your boarding help aren’t available at least twice a day to switch out blankets from light to heavy or remove when needed in warmer climates, you’re better off not clipping and leaving your horse with his full coat, using a lightweight waterproof sheet as needed.
