Re: Ridden Veteran - showing?
I use to do ridden veteran with a welsh cob and an irish show cob, I would say clean matching tack, no saddle cloth or a brown numnah, I would say a tweed jacket, shirt, tie,, long riding boots, jodphurs (canary,ivory etc) It depends on your personal taste really.
What breed/type is he?
My welsh cob was left natural, just scrubbed up well lol and oil, I rode him in black leather tack, double bridle, I had a green tweed jacket, cream shirt and navy and gold tie, navy riding hat, long black boots, cream/ivory jodphurs.
In veteran classes a majority of judges like a good shine, supple movement and a gentle nature but some judges like to see some life in them, My lad was popular as he was forward going and had showy movement, so when your trotting and cantering get him to extend and strutt his stuff!
Hope that helps.
