Tips for Clipping Your Horse

Before:

  • Before clipping, bathe, dry or groom your horse to get hair as clean as possible as dirty (and wet) hair dulls clipper blades rapidly and doesn’t cut well.
  • Gather a rag and a small brush to clean your blades, plus an extra set of blades or two if you are body clipping.
  • Oil blades well by applying a few drops between the upper and lower teeth while the clipper is running. Point the blades down to prevent oil from entering the motor. Wipe away excess.

    During:

  • Remember to brush hair off and lubricate blades periodically while clipping. Upper and lower teeth create friction as they cut, which produces heat, causes dulling, and can burn your horse’s skin.
  • If you use spray lubricant, it should not replace oil. Some professional groomers use only oil on their blades. Note some horses have allergic skin reactions to silicone in the spray lubricants.
  • To clip cleanly, run the blades flat against the growth of your horse’s hair. Stretch skin slightly with your free hand, and overlap strokes to avoid leaving tracks of hair and uneven patches.
  • When you encounter whorls, such as on the flank, move your clippers so you continue to work against hair growth.
  • If your blades move but won’t cut, feel them. If they’re hot, the metal may have expanded. Allow the blades to cool, then clean and oil them before trying them again. If they won’t cut after cooling and oiling, they have probably become dull.
  • Some clippers become less effective, leave lines in hair, or begin to make noise if the clipper blade drive needs to be replaced. Refer to instructions accompanying your clipper for help changing the drive.

    After:

  • When finished clipping, brush your horse with a soft finishing brush to remove fine hairs. A good currying and thorough brushing will reduce the amount of grease exposed on the skin, which will in turn soil your horse’s blanket.
  • Dull clipper blades with intact teeth can be sharpened by a professional. Depending on the type and composition of blades, most can be sharpened successfully about three times.
  • Soften the blunt ends of freshly clipped hair and soothe your horse’s skin with an equine coat conditioner spray.
  • Clear debris from clipper blades with a small brush and clipper cleaner, making sure after cleaning to oil your blades thoroughly. Store your clippers in a protective box, tote or bag.
