National laws in Germany prohibit all clipping of hair around nose, mouth, eyes and inside ears.

We would like to point out once again that clipping in Germany is not allowed. The state veterinarian can exclude clipped horses from the show and demand a fine.

The judges are informed not to penalize horses which are not clipped, even if they would do in the US.

We know that different rules apply in other European countries. So we ask to not clip a horse at least from now on.
