Horse Clippers & Trimmers NZ

Whether doing a full Horse Clip, or Trimming some Feathers or Whiskers, we have clippers for you. Cordless Clippers, Trimmers, Clipper Oil & More. Horse Clipping minimises sweating and will enable him to dry and cool off more effectively. Horse clipping will prevent your horse from catching a chill and it will also cut down on grooming time. Clipping is also a great way to encourage their coat to grow back nicer and glossier for summer. To Clip a horse, use long, overlapping strokes going against the direction of hair growth. Pull horse's skin tight with your free hand and do not attempt to clip folds or wrinkled skin. When clipping around elbows have a helper pull the front leg forward so you can reach more easily. Do not force the clippers through the coat. When clipping, only work with blades that are sharp – dull blades can chop the coat up, making it look rough and untidy. Always make sure that the horse is clean and well-groomed before clipping, as mud and ingrained dirt in the coat can potentially clog the clipper blades, dulling them more quickly. Excess dirt is also hard on the clipper motor. To help the clippers slide through the hair more easily, spray on a silicone product such as ShowSheen before you begin.
