It completely depends on your horse and what you plan to do with him. Some horses never need to be clipped, either because they have naturally short hair or because they don't work hard and don't need to be clipped. People who show horses often shave them a little before show season (in the spring or summer) to give them a glossy, clean-shaven look. Show horses often need their whiskers cut, and their ears and ankles shaved before every show. Show horses with fast-growing hair need their bodies shaved several times a year, some only need to be shaved once or twice. If a horse doesn't work very hard, it is preferable to leave him unshaven during the winter. If a horse works hard and trains during the winter, however, it may be a good idea to shave him when it's cold to prevent him from overheating during workouts. If you do this, you need to make sure to put more and heavier blankets on him- and prepare for him to be a bit frisky for a while! You cut a horses hair with horse clippers. :)

No, its not. People only cut the hair inside their ears for show. The hair inside horses' ears protect them from flys, dirt, water, etc. If you do want to clip the ears, then you should put cotton balls inside their ear (not too deep, be careful!) beforehand so hair doesn't get inside their ear completley. ~Bree

Do horses hair grow?

yes, a horses hair does grow. They have a summer and winter coat, just like a dog. Also, their main and tail grows. A woman once didn't trim her horses tail about 10 years. She kept it in a bun near the rump. The horses tail grew to be about 9 feet. People who show their horses tend to like to keep their horses' main trimmed in a straight line, like a military cut.
