I am trying to get an idea of what everyone pays for Clipping- Body, Mane Pull, Face, Ears and Legs, ect. Your input will be great appreciated! :D

$150 for a full body clip by someone who does a great job. I pull my own manes, etc. but I know people charge $25 to pull a mane.

Last time I paid, it was $150 to get Show ring ready.....
Instead, I took that $150 and invested in a clipper......

The ChopShoppe is now open !!!!

My full care show barn keeps everything groomed, trimmed, pulled and show ready and it's included in the board. Full body clip is about 140 and optional depending on owners wishes and if they are showing or not.

They do NOT tack up for you, cool it out or take care of after ride grooming/bathing.

Currently all included in board, but last place was $150 body clip. Pulling mane and touching up legs, muzzle and bridle path ran about 50, though you could get those separately.

Very interesting info! I know a show-worthy clip was around $150 when I lived in CO, and it's about the same now in PA. Interesting to see it's quite similar across the board. :cool:

This is not an ad but my mom is cheap. She only charges 120. We are MD/PA line.

I do all that myself, but at our barn:

$150 for full body clip (show worthy)
$30 for mane pulling
$30 for pre-show trim (ears, pasterns, muzzle, chin, overall show prettifying)

My trainer charges the following:

Full body clip: $125
Show clip (ears, muzzle, legs): $25
Mane pull: $25

I do my own horse's mane, clipping, etc., though.

Training includes trims, mane pulling, etc. However, for a full body clip it is $140, except I get a discount because my horse is small (15.2 1/2) so I only pay $130. I laugh every time I get this discount and then add the ten bucks in tip.

Because differences in horse size can drastically change the time it takes for a full body clip, I charge by the hour...$30.

Body clip at our barn is $150 in CA. All other clipping, trimming, mane pulls are including in the training and care cost.

$150 is average around here for a full body clip.

I paid a girl at the barn $20 to pull my horse's mane and she also clipped his muzzle, ears, and bridle path for me. I gave her a $5 tip. She did a really great job. :yes:

I charge $150 for a show-quality full body clip.

Last year, the last two times I clipped (at 2 different barns), the trainers at each place were shocked, as the clippers they usually bring in to do their clients' horses usually charge $185-200.

Damn. When I was growing up we were allowed to clip if all the homework was up to snuff....

These were the parents who didn't tell me about artichoke hearts, either.

Usual price around NJ is $150 for a body clip. A mane pull will run around $20 give or take a few. Ears and legs will run about $20-30. I body clip my own horse and do all his touchups as well. Take the $150 and spend it on your own clippers. ;)

For my barn it's $150 for a full-body clip. Ears, muzzle, bridlepath, and (lower) legs included in board. I don't know how much they charge for a mane pull, though, because I do it myself.

3 is the limit

Here in the Los Angeles area we pay $150 for a full body clip. Our full training covers mane pulling and basic clips (face, legs, bridal path).
Haven't needed to have my horse braided yet, but I believe that is around $100.
