We provide a quality and professional clipping service. We are more than happy to advise of you the best clip for your horse if you are unsure. Everyone loves to clip a 'quiet horse', however we all know that this isn't always the case.. If you have a young, nervous or just a very unsure horse, we will take all of the time necessary to introduce your horse to the clippers with a very calm and reassuring attitude. So that they will have a good experience to take forward with them for any future clips. We would appreciate any background information regarding any issues that they may have. If your horse needs to be sedated, we are more than happy to clip under sedation (the relevant paperwork will need signing for approval from yourselves). Also if they need sedation from the vet, this is something that you will need to approve and pay for.
CHOOSING THE RIGHT CLIP
There are many factors to be weighed as part of this decision: Do you work your horse in cold weather? Does your horse sweat when you work him in cold weather? Are you willing to blanket your horse? Does your horse live outside all winter? Clipping is a choice that should be made based on your specific situation. Generally, if you do not work your horse during the winter, there is little need to clip; but if your horse sweats in cold, then clipping is a good option to prevent chill and decrease drying time. Clipping can be important if it is hard to dry your horse after a workout, because sweat makes his coat heavy and prevents it from keeping him warm. When dry, your horse's coat is his natural defense against the elements; therefore if you decide to clip you should be prepared to use blankets. This article will cover how to prepare for clipping, clipping style options, and aftercare.
