Q: What are the options for trimming/shaving horses?
What techniques? Are there services that do this?
Mar 13, 2009
First of all make sure your horses are accustomed to clippers and standing for grooming. Clips range from neatening the bridle path (area where the crown of the bridle goes) to clipping leg feathering (except in certain draft breeds) to full body clips (and hunt clips). Look on line for techniques and the different ways breeds are clipped (and Arabian's bridle path is almost half the length of its neck). Then buy good clippers that will do the job you need done and get your horses used to them. Good luck.
