Summer shows...

Hello everyone! I really want to do some shows with my two this summer, nothing serious just to have some fun and experience but Im not sure on which catergories they fall in and what classes would be best?
Any advice would be great!

I have a 4 yr old chestnut welsh cob type, not registered but the same build as a welsh cob, feather,decent mane and tail with good movement. He is broken and riding well. I would prefer to keep him natural because I don't want to cut off all his feather... Any idea on what classes?
 

I also have a 2 year old coloured cob x filly, she is Traditional cob x appaloosa x ID... she isa  middle weight cob type, She is piebald with roaning, and one blue eye but she does have almost identical markings on both sides. so would she be shown natural or plaited?

Thank you,x

 nice horses :) is the 4 yo broken?  he could do M&M large breeds they really should be registered but al local its not really that hot - just check the rules first its usually just affiliated classes and bigger shows where the rules state must be registered with appopriate stud book - he could also do handsomest gelding 

 

as for the filly she is deffinatly a part bred so technically should be registered although she would probably do well in traditional classes so cob/cob type - traditional coloureds (non natives) - and youngstock - this is a very good class for young horses i loved these when showing mine :)

 

Good Luck

Where are you based, as you could look on the different BHS Facebook Sites, then the local tack / feed shops, our Vets are organising a 10 mile or a 20 mile ride to support a charity. The local pony club does quite afew things in the week as well.

Re: Summer shows...

Thanks both, Yeah my 4 year old is broken and riding. he is registered with the TGCA
I am in south wales, I know of a really good local riding club for my 4 year old, so I think I will take him along... They do best turned out/condition, best family cob, working hunter etc. Would he have to be plaited up?

 what is the TGCA? if your going to show him as a sec d then no dont plait leave feather ect but if you are showing him as a part bred he needs to be pulled trimmed plaited and tail squared off - this is my PBW for ideas on turn out
