I own a draft cross and her winter coat gets pretty darn long, at least an inch and a half. Winter riding is kind of tough on her coat, seems that some of her hair gets pulled out or rubbed down to where it is noticeably thinner. I'm thinking of giving her a bib clip next year - to curtail this issue. I wouldn't need to blanket her in the barn, it is heated. Outdoors maybe a blanket? Any other clipping ideas?
