I'd show him in coloured classes. Is he a traditional coloured? If he is, then just leave his mane and tail natural. If not, clip his feathers off, trim his beard/whiskers, pull his mane and tail and plait mane. If he's an athletic looking type, you could also enter him in Sports horse classes. He'd need to be trimmed and plaited for these. Whatever you do with him, good luck and just enjoy him. :)

he's not got the bone for traditional and has no feather, he's a squarer shape horse. I hate the idea of pulling his mane, so far I've managed to clip his feathers (what little there is) and tidy his mane up. he's got what looks like a double mane from somwhere!

I think I'm going to show him as coloured native if I can. He's caspian cross so I don't know if he can show as native due to him being a cross bred. I really hate the idea plaiting him up as his mane is gorgeous long, plus he's got a huge thick tail which will be a challenge to plait up. He did really well in the youngster classes but now its ridden classes. You should see him just now, caked in mud and loving it!!!!!
