Horse Clipping in the Hawkesbury and surrounds.
Horse clipping in the Hawkesbury and surrounds. Trace clip, show clip, hunter clips, fully body clips, comfort clips for cushing horses and ear/whisker/fetlock trims.
I have clipped horses for Local, State and National level for the past eight years. I have clipped my own horses as well as friends horses.
When getting me to clip a horse please bear the following in mind:
For me to get the best clip, the horse needs to be CLEAN and DRY. I cannot stress this enough. A dirty horse blunts blades and is hard to clip. A wet horse snags the blades and again is almost impossible to clip. I suggest bathing the day before and stabling or rugging overnight.
Whilst I am a very patient person and will generally put up with a lot from horses, I am only human and if your horse is being dangerous and I deem I cannot continue safely for myself, you or your horse, I will have to call it quits for the day.
I cannot supply or administer sedation, this is for vets only. If you need your horse sedated please contact your vet to work something out.
I use small lightweight clippers that are easy to get into tight spaces and are very quiet, this is gentler on the horses that are scared or may not have been clipped before.
