Alice Clarke

At the age of 15 Alice founded the business Devine Equine Services where her primary work was professionally clipping, presenting and educating horses.  She has a special passion for working with young horses and is in high demand for her presentation skills at Royals and Arabian Shows.

Ponies/Horses MUST be freshly washed and dried to be clipped.

Q & A

When is the best time to clip?

a. stabled of a night under lights - anytime

b. stabled of a night with no lights - when the winter coat first comes through but expect to reclip to maintain the coat for showing

c. out in a paddock day and night - as close as possible to the show you are aiming at

d. for the summer coat to come through faster for Spring shows - July/August

Q & A

Why do I have to wash my horse before it is clipped?

Your horse is continually shedding skin cells.  The flakes sit amongst the hair shafts next to the skin with dirt and sweat.  This "grit" clogs the clipper blades leaving a rough finish.

Q & A

Can I do anything to improve a coat colour and texture?

Yes most certainly.  What you feed your horse months before the clip shows after the clip.  Feed a good quality feed and coat supplement, wash and condition the coat regularly and exercise.
