Last winter I ended up having to clip her so we could continue to go to lessons because we would work very hard and she'd get soaking wet even with temps in the teens (shudder, right around the corner).
I clipped her for the second time a few weeks ago. Then clipped her again the day after that. Then a few days later, then a week later. I think I might be calling it quits, I don't think I can make it look any better!
Anyone who has advice on how to clip a straight line across the body is welcome to chime in!
This is what it looks like.
