Spa Days/ Clipping Services
Why Do We Clip?
Clipping is beneficial to horses that will be worked throughout the winter because it prevents the horse from becoming too sweaty and overheating.
Clipping can also help the overweight horse. Horses who are overweight can be clipped to help them drop a few pounds over the colder months.
Keeping the legs and fetlocks clipped can help prevent conditions such as mud fever as the mud will have no hair to cling onto
Horses with some health conditions, for example, Cushings disease, may be unable to shed out their winter coat in the spring, so clipping does this for them
when to clip
Most horses are clipped in September or October. however, depending on the amount of work you do with your horse and the breed; will depend on when you will want/need to clip. Some competition horses are clipped all year round to keep them cool, minimise sweating and keep them looking neat and tidy.
