Common Types of Horse Clips
Bib and Apron clips are a good choice for horses that get hacked occasionallythrough the winter, are in very light work, and/or live outside. Blanketing is still recommended when the temperature drops below 50ºF and on wet windy days.*
Irish, chaser, trace, and blanket clips are a good choice for horses that are in regular work in the winter, but only compete in local shows (not recommended for rated shows), or live outside. Blanketing is highly recommended when the temperature drops below 50ºF and on wet windy days.*
Hunter and full body clips are good for horses that are in heavy work in the winter, and/or compete in rated shows. The Hunter clip (often modified without the saddle pad, or small saddle pad) is one of the most common clip jobs for horses in active work. Blanketing at all times is highly recommended until the summer coat grows in fully, approximately in May.*
All clips listed can be customised to the owners preference. This included clipping cheaks and adding flair, such as stenciled shapes or words to the clip job. Stencil's are an additonal $20 per clip job.
*A note about blanketing:
Blanketing recommendations are just that, recommendations. Please blanket your horse according to what you feel is best/required for your personal horse and climate.
