How to Clip and Bathe Horses Safely

Wouldn’t it be nice if clipping and bathing your horse were as simple as giving yourself a shave and a shampoo? You’d be done in 15 minutes or less, with no fuss and no frustration. But for many horse owners, clipping and bathing are among the most challenging barn chores, especially when you’re dealing with a young, scared, or impatient horse. With some common sense, a hefty dose of patience, and spare time on your hands, you can make clipping and bathing your horse a safe, efficient, and positive experience for you and your four-hooved friend, whether it’s his first or 50th time under the blades (or the hose).
