showing an ex-racer

my friend has just bought an ex-racer and would like to do some showing classes with him this year. he is 12, bay and exceptionally well-mannered and behaved so she would like to do both in-hand and ridden.

i know he can do ex-racer classes and racehorse to riding horse (obviously) but what else could she do?

what would she wear for these classes? she is under 16

riding horse or hacks are good ones for manerly tb's and generally what they move onto after ROR classes.


your friend should wear a navy show jacket pref not black, beigh jods, black boots, brown tack, horse can wear a neat cavesson/rolled bridle with a coloured brow band pref to tie in with riders tie hair scrunchie.


ETA just seen she is under 16 - as far as i know these are adult classes at county because its all done on age/horses height but if its just local she could wear the usual jod clips and joddy boots

at local shows as well as ex-race horse classes she could do things like 'riding horse', and if they can jump, even if only small, they can do riding club horse. in riding club horse you just have to jump one jump as well as doing a ridden show. there is also best turned out and best condition.

my horses are my medicine, without them im even more crazy!

Riding horse is the likely one, and my friend's daughter has just started showing her ex racer in show hunter classes too.
