The Horse Barber Demonstration

October 13, 2018 @ 10:00 - 12:00 UTC+0


During this demonstration The Horse Barber will be covering the foundation aspects of clipping, through to more complex clipping processes.
You will see the very latest techniques that she applies and has introduced to the Equestrian Clipping industry, along with the latest and greatest tools for the job.

Areas of discussion are;

Introduction and confidence building
Corded and Cordless clipping, the pros and cons
Breed Factors
Appropriate Blade selection for coat type
Behavioural factors
Safety practices

You will have the opportunity at the end of the demo to handle the equipment that I work with and ask questions that you may have! Take a pen and paper and keep it handy to jot down any questions you may have, as you will have the opportunity at the end of the demo to ask and also to handle the equipment that I work with on a daily basis.

This demo evening will be beneficial to both novice clippers, first timers or experienced clippers alike, who wish to expand their knowledge, further on the horse barber craft.
It is also beneficial to horse owners whom employ others to clip their horses. There are many many inexperienced clippers out there so it’s useful to know what to look out for when hiring a horse clipper. I can help you avoid a disaster as clipping horses can cause major trauma when done incorrectly.

The Horse Barber has worked both nationally and over seas, particularly America clipping horses. She has experience working alongside American based company, Andis grooming, as an international education for the equine division.
The knowledge shared in these demos is unique to her way of working. These helpful hints and tips will give you the opportunity to tap into knowledge that she has acquired over the past 20 years, having been clipping horses since the age of just 9 years old.
