showing

 me & my sister have decided we want to inhand show our ponies.

They are both 14.2hh one purebred Appaloosa chestnut blanket spot, very pretty (my one lol) and the other is a native (we don't actually know) dark brown / black almost a dun colour, also very pretty but has a bit of mane missing through field, very thick tail. Both have perfect conformation. we are knew to showing and were wondering

*What classes there are
*What we have to do for the classes
*What we have to where and what tack the horses wear

Thanks.

 

Also are there any ridden classes that are only done at a walk? thanks

 You could show in tack & turnout [in hand or ridden, in walk], which basically means you, your horse and your tack have to be as clean as possible. When I took Harry, it was good for getting him used to the arena and other horses.

Or you could do Mountain & Moorland [in hand or ridden] with the native. You walk and trot. In hand is just done in a bridle, with the horse shown clean and unplaited. Ridden I'm not so sure cos I haven't done that.

Also you could look and see if there are any 'fun' classes.

 

Good Luck and let us know how you get on :) xx

Re: showing

 thanks. I've never showed so I know nothing! haha.

That sounds good, as long as you are not judged on trot? our native is stiff in trot due to lami / stiff joints.
