When choosing a clipper for your horse, there are a few things to consider in order to find the machine that best suits your needs. Are you going to clip one horse or several, and how often? If you have many horses or really thick coats, it may be a good idea to prioritize a powerful machine.Read more
If the horse is sensitive and perhaps does not like to be clipped at all or is afraid of the cord, then a battery-powered machine may be a good alternative. Regardless, it's good to take your time before clipping, be patient, and let the horse get used to it in a calm manner. We also have really good trimmers that are lightweight and handy when you need to reach smaller areas.
Choose a clipping machine according to your needsHorseonline has many years of accumulated experience with horses, and we carefully select our range. We work with well-known brands that provide high-quality clipping machines developed by riders for riders. All clipping machines we offer provide a smooth and fine result. In addition to choosing between corded or cordless clipping machines, there are a few other things that can vary slightly among the clipping machines on the market today:
- Motor power. Machines with cords generally have a slightly higher motor power than battery-powered ones and can therefore clip more in less time. A more powerful machine is usually a good idea if you're going to clip more horses or really thick coats.
- Sound. Generally, battery-powered machines are usually a bit quieter. If it's important to have a quiet machine, you should investigate and compare the decibels (dB) of different machines. Machines considered quiet usually have a dB of about 65-70. Other machines can have a dB of around 80-85.
- Ergonomics. Do you need a machine that is ergonomically designed, such as one with a tapered handle or lightweight? Machines considered lightweight usually weigh just under a kilogram.
