When clipping a horse: Which clip to pick?

Body clipping a horse certainly makes cooling out and grooming easier in the winter, but this convenience comes at a cost?when you remove some of a horse's hair, you reduce his protection against the cold. That's why if your horse is on full turnout and rarely works up a sweat, it's probably best not to clip his coat at all. And if he's more active, you'll want to choose the most conservative clip that will get the job done.
