Would it be a bad thing to trace clip my appendix gelding for the winter? He stays outside 24/7 but is very fuzzy and gets very sweaty when I ride him

Yes. It is ok as long as he has a blanket
only if he has a blanket fit for the weather
He would be fine if he's rugged properly
No not at all, if he’s getting very sweaty after riding then it may be worth it. Just make sure you are rugging him appropriately
