    Equine Clipping

    As we come into Autumn, the daylight decreases and melatonin production increases in the horse. This triggers more hair growth, therefore, the horse clipping season is usually from August to October. These coat changes happen at different time periods dependant of the area of the body. The shoulders, back and loins are covered by the winter coat for longer than other areas and take longer to shed. Formed as a barrier from the rain and snow, the thicker coat grows for protection against the elements and still prevents light showers from impinging through to their skin. Recent studies have proven that the coat changes from 5 to 8 weeks after the daylight adjustments. Clipping is the simple answer to get rid of the horse’s winter coat. However, if this is done too late in the year, it can remove new growing hair ultimately affecting their summer coat. Therefore, clipping at the right time is paramount for the best results both long and short term. September is universally the best month for clipping and is suggested by top brands at the peak of the season.

    Wearing a Hi-Vis makes it easier for other road users to see you, giving them more time to react and slow down as they approach. Also, if you were to have an accident and part ways with your horse, wearing Hi-Vis can make you easier to find too!
