It’s that time of the year again when horses in work need to be clipped, so take a look at our pick of the best clippers to make this sometimes arduous task quick and easy

When choosing clippers you can select cordless or mains powered.   Cordless advantages include; no power lead for your horse to tread on.   They are usually lighter to handle, and are great for remote yards without electricity.  On the other hand, a mains power set can run for as long as is needed (subject to short breaks to prevent the blades from getting hot) and don’t need to be recharged. Other important features to look out are good ventilation to avoid overheating. You should also consider whether they are comfortable to hold for long periods and how noisy they are in use. As they can be quite a considerable financial investment, most horse clippers are sold with a warranty, which is useful to have.
