We are often asked which clipper is suitable for teenagers, or people with small hands who are quite new to clipping. The Lister Star is an excellent choice, if you have between 1- 3 horses or ponies with medium or shorter hair. This clipper is easy to hold, lightweight but powerful enough to easily clip a full horse. The body of the clipper is not too long, making it suitable for ponies or horses. It comes with an A2F blade, as standard, although we are happy to switch this blade to an A2 blade which is often easier for beginners. The A2 blade is more forgiving than the A2F blade, which can leave ‘lines’ of hair on the horse giving an uneven finish to the clip.
The Lister Star is a great price at only £225 for a proper clipper from one of the best names in the business. Lister have been making clippers for over 100 years. They have the Royal Warrant, the clippers are made in the UK and come with a 1 year guarantee. Lister are also considered to have the best blades available.
The Lister Star even has a choice of colour, coming in green (a tasteful National Trust shade), blue, purple or red.
In our opinion, the Lister Star is a great choice for teenagers or those new to clipping. You may also wish to look at the Lister Liberty Mains (only £235), if you want to go for a slightly more powerful clipper that would also be manageable and comfortable for young people new to clipping.
