Should I Clip My Horse During Summer?

I’m debating whether or not I should once summer really starts to roll around. My gelding is starting to get really sweaty when we’re working and its only in the mid 80’s right now. Where I live it can reach over 115 F during the summer, so do you think it’d be a good idea?
I’m thinking at least around his chest and legs as that is the area he’s most sweaty, or should I just do his whole body? Or not do it at all?
Another thing I like about the idea is he wouldn’t stain as much from the sweat (he’s a flee bitten grey)

Soooo…pros and cons of clipping? Should I do it? Would he be happier clipping, or would it make a difference in him sweating? Thanks! 🙂
