This course will cover the basic principles of safely and effectively clipping horses. It will cover:
- Reasons for clipping and types of clips
- Equipment required and health and safety considerations.
- Basic clipping principles and how to deal with a range of horses.
This course will be delivered using a mixture of theory and practice on the College Yard. A must for all horse owners to develop your knowledge!
You will need to wear sensible yard clothing with appropriate yard footwear. We would advise you to bring extra clothing, such as waterproofs, warm jackets or a cooler top with sleeves if the weather looks as though it could be unpredictable.
For safety reasons we ask that you wear gloves and a hat for the clipping activities and no jewellery, apart from a watch and wedding ring, is worn. It is also advised for safety reasons that hair of shoulder length or longer is tied back and a hairnet is worn. In addition, hoodies are not permitted. Please ensure your hat has been correctly fitted and meets the current safety standards, available at: 2023-bhs-approvals-and-bhs-assessments-hat-guide-v1.pdf
