CLIPPING & TRIMMING A NERVOUS OR YOUNG HORSE - and a toothbrush?

A really simple, yet effective way to introduce a young or nervous horses to clipping. 
If you are prepared to invest a short amount of time daily you will reap the rewards ten fold. Using an old battery operated toothbrush, get your horse use to the noise, then gradually move it around it's body, including the head.   Remember to go at the speed your horse is comfortable with, take your time with lots of reassurance.

This was used on a very highly strung racehorse which went on to accept clipping without a problem, proving time and patience will win the day! Click on the following link for more information on trimming and tidying up your horse. Read more grooming and clipping tips
