Coloured classes???

 Hi, a friend of mine is encouraging me to take Colours to a local show in a couple of weeks with her and her mum and their two coloured horses. I'm thinking of going along even if it's not to compete just for the experience. I would love to enter but have never done anything like it before and Colours can be a monster when schooling. What would it actually involve? Do you think it's worth a go for the fun of it or just have a look and aim for the next one when I'll have more time to work with him. Also we've done hardly anything for about 6weeks due to my foot getting broken then his foot being bruised. Thanks!

If you haven't been able to do much schooling work then i would just take him to get used to the atmosphere of a show and work on his schooling and fitness for the next one. Also that way you will have been able to watch the class that you will be entering to see what you need to do and practise a routine for it.

 id go for the experience, even if you dont compete you can see how he takes the atmosphere etc.. also you can get ideas on presentation, etc.. you never know, you might find yourself making a last minute entry! :)

Just turn up and see how you feel, I did this with my lovely Piebald Gypsy Cob Tonka while out on a hack came up on a show so he was not up to show condition as such but entered him as he was and came 4th in the Cob Class as at that time Coloured Horses were a little on the rare side and some people looked down their noses at them especially Gypsy Cobs but they were the ones missing out on such fantastic horses.

Gypsy Gold does not chink & glitter.It gleams in the sun and neighs in the dark.Tonka & Lara my beautiful horses RIP, Nelson,Chloe & Kitty the cats.

if they have a ridden coloured class they almost certainly will have an in-hand class, which is great experience and good when your not prepared!

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