    make sure your horse has started malting before you clip it for the royal. We usually clip august :) always had a nice coat come royal....or you could brush it out? I did that once....Never again! :D

    I also tried last year brushing it out, damn hard work!!!

    I have decided to clip this year at the start of August.....

    I do our's four weeks before the show. Or if it's a grey you could do it just before the show.

    PaintedHoney if yours legs are you can just re-clip them, most people clip their horses legs a week before a show and you wouldn't even know.
