How do you clip a young horse that is scared of the clippers?

How do you clip a young horse that is scared of the clippers?
Hello 🙂 You can start by approaching the clipper while it's off, and just "brush" him with it, then you can turn it on without approaching the clipper just to get him used to the noise.
Then you have to be patient, approach the clipper step by step, when he's scared stop moving and once he's calm, move again. You can be with someone that reassure him

Hope it helps x
