I have a question for everyone. I trained in dressage for 11 years. This season I will be showing my arab in hunt seat, as I have been riding with a world champion trainer. I was wondering if anyone knows why people that show arabian horses never use the hunt seat pads that have the number slots on the side? I am planning to use mine this year, I am just hoping that the judges don't mark me down for it. All of the stock horse people use them so I would think it would be ok. Can you give me some imput? I will be showing in open shows in the NEWPHA circuit.
