Clipping a Horse Like You've Never Seen It Before

Posted by Paige Cerulli

Clipping a horse can be a challenging task, but we've never seen anyone approach it from quite this angle. 

When it comes to preparing for a horse show, there are many tasks to be done. Horses need to be bathed, clipped, and often have their manes braided. It takes time, and can be frustrating and challenging when your horse isn't cooperating.

Clipping a horse is a delicate process, and when they move around unexpectedly, you might end up with some unsightly clip jobs. But for this horse, that isn't a problem.

Pierre Fleury has his horse well-trained, and when it comes to clipping, he knows just what is expected of him.

Check out this unusual clipping style below:

Okay, so most of our horses aren't going to lie down for us or let us climb up on them and clip them. But there are some ways that you can make your task of clipping your horse easier.

First, start off with your clipping work well ahead of the horse show. By giving yourself plenty of time you'll remove some of the pressure, and if you do make a bad clip or two, there's still some time for it to grow back.

Second, do some training with your horse to teach him how to behave during clipping. If a horse is anxious, your job will only become more challenging. Investing the time to make sure that a horse truly is comfortable with clippers is sure to pay off in the long run.


Lastly, always make sure that your clippers are in excellent shape. Use sharp blades and invest in the very best clippers that you can buy. They'll make your job easier and faster - something that both you and your horse are sure to appreciate.
