Thanks for the info! I checked the SSHBEA rule book (they have it online? It's almost struck me as a pretty ghetto organization for some reason), and you are suppose to gait in hand, but I doubt anyone will. And, weirdly, enough, you use a western show halter and western attire.
Err... No thanks.
Ooh, Vivache, I want your purple cloths! And that browband! It's so... Shiny. *__*
I call stealing Lady next, by the way. And Midnight. You can keep your cow. ;)
So, here's the plan: My pony likes to pace in hand. Most people don't know a pace from a run-walk anyway. I'll steal a show halter from a friend and deck out western. At first glance, you see a funny quarter/arab with spots and an awkward saddlebred head. Then, just to mix it up, I'll park her out.
I can imagine the gears in that judge's head turning... "WTF...?"
