How can I build a horses confidence with clippers?
If it is a case of getting the horse’s confidence, then time spent introducing the clippers to the horse will pay off in the long run. If clippers or trimmers are incorporated as a part of the grooming routine, the horse will soon relax as he gets used to the noise. Don’t try and do a full clip all in one go, instead aim for a smaller clip and a positive experience, you can remove more hair the next time. A young or nervous horse can also get used to the noise of clipping if he is stabled next to the clipping box/area.
