Clipping a horses legs poses its own dangers as it will have your head close to the knee, hock and hooves. Horses will rarely kick you on purpose but a kick or a sudden leg movement due to fright, pain or a dislike of the clippers can and does happen.  To be honest you are often at risk of just being in the way when a horse innocently moves.
