Investing in your own horse clippers may seem expensive, but if you take care of them they will last you for many years, saving on the cost of hiring professionals to come and do the job for you.
There are various factors to consider when choosing the right clippers to suit your needs.
Light duty clippers will be fine if you are planning on just giving your horse a bib clip, particularly if he has a fine coat. Larger clips and thicker coats need more heavy duty clippers.
Some clippers are battery powered, others with mains connections - the choice depends on the facilities at the stable or yard. You can also consider things like the weight and diameter of the clippers, and whether they will fit comfortably in your hand.
