Top 5 tips for clipping your horse
Tags: winter, fall
Clipping makes life easier for sport horses and their riders. The horse can more easily release heat generated during training and dry off more quickly afterwards. Clipping your horse, however, changes its thermoneutral zone. Make sure to cover your horse with an appropriate rug after it’s cooled off and depending on the outside temperature. You should also take into account that the horse’s skin is very sensitive. Keep your horse’s coat clean and soft. Use pH-neutral products to provide the skin with nutrients and protect it. For horses, a neutral pH value lies between 7.0 and 7.4.

Here are 5 tips for clipping your horse:

1. Cover your horse with the right rug after cooling down

Clipping your horse changes its thermoneutral zone. Make sure to cover your horse with an appropriate rug after it’s cooled off and depending on the outside temperature.

2. Wash your horse before clipping

Washing your horse properly with a good conditioning shampoo is very important in the shaving process. Washing your horse removes sand, soil, dust, skin fat, … It also ensures that the coat becomes soft and it ensures a smooth shave. It is also true that a clean coat gives a nice, shiny result after shaving!

3. Wash your horse after clipping

After a clip, tiny hairs and amounts of clipping oil are left behind in the coat. Combined with friction from a blanket, this often causes skin irritation in the form of bumps in the coat or friction marks. By carefully washing your horse with a nourishing shampoo after a clip, you not only remove the tiny hairs and clipping oil residue, but also the stripes that a clip can cause.

4. Wash your horse with Cavalor Derma Wash

Thanks to its neutral pH values, Derma Wash is suitable for every horse’s coat! It not only cleans the coat but also disinfects it thanks to chlorhexidine.

5. Use Cavalor Derma Spray for cleaning wounds

Hidden wounds often appear after shaving. Use Derma Spray for this. This will support the body’s natural healing response.
