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!

Please note:

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
