Blades For Summer Clipping

The beauty of horse clipping is that you can clip entirely to your own needs and preferences. In the summer months, pick a blade that will make your horse look gleaming, make their amazing features stand out and provide them with the comfort they need.

During the warmer season, we recommend purchasing a blade that will help to keep your horse cool. Our specialist Covercote Blade, leaving 5.0mm of hair on the coat tends to be a popular option amongst horse owners this summer due to its ability to cut off the excess length of the coat. This works well on those horses with an already shorter coat like thoroughbreds who do not require a large amount clipped off.

Our A2F/AC Fine blades are a favourite amongst those showing their animals in the summer months. Leaving 1.4mm of hair on the coat, this will accentuate their features and provide a smart finish.

If you are looking to keep their natural summer coat intact without completely removing it, another blade option you have is our A2/AC Medium blades, leaving 2.5mm of hair on the coat. This blade is ideal for general grooming and summer clipping. It is recommended for those lighter-haired horses that are prone to burn when out in the sun.

All of our blades are completely interchangeable, which is why we suggest people have a few different blade types in their kit bag just in case the weather makes a sudden change or you want to try out a new application.
