hunter poke vs arabian headset
so I have an Arab mare that I had been training to take to some Arabian breed shows. I still aim to do this, but I stopped showing for a few years and would need to buy all new show gear (long boots, jacket, velvet helmet, etc- can you see the $$ going up? lol). So now, I'm planning on taking her to some local shows-- schooling, "fun" shows, and 4-H shows to get us back in the groove and which don't necessarily require me to be decked out. (I can get away with some half chaps and a show blouse minus my hunt coat).
My main issue is this: My mare has been thoroughly conditioned for a beautiful Arabian headset. We worked on it for years, and continue to make minor improvements (mainly making sure we're riding back to front and utilizing half halts to keep her from getting heavy on the forehand). This will be great for her Arabian shows but should I have her set in frame for her (English) pleasure classes? I know in the hunters she will need to be "let out" into a hunter poke, but I just don't know what they want for a pleasure class...(and of course, I'd love to show her off! haha)
