Why clip?

  • Too hot.
  • Owners have no time to wait for horse's to dry and in that case, they can catch a chill from damp hair in a cold environment.
  • Keeps condition especially if there is excess sweat.
  • Disease related such as cushings, to give the horse relief because it cannot shed its own coat.
