Clipping Mini Course

Learn everything there is to know about clipping

In this mini course we will be discussing all aspects of the subject of Clipping including why we do it, how to prepare for it, the types of clip, how to clip, dealing with nervous horses and much more!

Whilst clipping can be done by anyone it does take time and it is best to get someone to help you when you first clip, and to do it on a quiet horse who is good to clip. It is important that you give all horses a good experience of clipping, that you take your time and that you are not in a rush, as one bad experience can make a horse anxious and difficult to clip potentially for the rest of his or her life.

Included in this course is a combination of written content and videos to watch. There are also quizzes to test your learning as you work your way through.

By the end of this course you will have had a knowledge and understanding of all aspects of clipping. Even if you don't want to clip yourself after this course, you will still understand about clipping and be able to make sure that your horse is adequately prepared for clipping, that he is clipped at the right time and with the correct type of clip.

If you would like to learn a bit about Clippers themselves then do take a look at our Blog which discusses different types of clippers that you can buy.


"Many thanks for another brilliant course, definitely looking to do more!"
