The high tails are broken and reset at the top, unless they have started doing something different to give them that height. Now I am a little confused because I thought they only did that with five gaited ASBs, and showed them with a full mane as well. I thought the 3 gaiters were shown with a roached mane and nautural tail, but I may have gotten that screwed up. It has been a while since I was around any ASB folks. Beautiful horses, I have always wanted to try park seat equitation.

Park and costume classes at Class A Arabian shows are, and always have been, my favorite classes to watch! I love the energy, the hooting and hollering, the motion of the horses.

I would start with the breed registry for information on local shows. Also check out the local show's site for classes, instructions, fees, ect. I would go check out a KMH show or a local open or 4H show that might have classed for gaited horses or a class gaited horses could go in. Don't be afraid to ask questions of the local show people too.

Good Luck!

The tails are NOT broken and reset at the top.

They are put up in bustle to slowly raise them and then put in tail set, if they are going be shown in division that requires that.

There is also several types of Pleasure classes, that all use natural tails, although horses that have been used to a tail set may show in those divisions, if that is what owner wants to compete in.

The horses can use their tails just like any horse can, and if taken out of tail set when retired, their tail will relax and look no different than any other horses.

Forgot this, sorry.

3 Gaited horses used to be shown with both roached mane and top of tail roached, and with shorter tail around hock length due to their way of moving.

They started showing them in 70's maybe, with roached manes but left tail unroached and tails were longer too, but not as long as 5 Gaited horses.

It is a Rocky, so yes. Keep her mane. I have never seen a rocky with a roached mane.

Three gaited and five gaited are terms used with American Saddlebreds. Three gaited means the horse does three gaits, which are walk, trot, and canter. No different than a QH. Most Saddlebreds are three gaited. Five gaited is when the horse can walk, trot, canter, and perform the two trained gaits which are the slow gait and rack.

Saddleseat rules I would believe are breed specific, so check your breed rules. The seat is pretty much for the misfit breeds, or at least is treated as such. There is no all encompassing set of rules that all types of horses who use the saddle use. Yes, basic horsemanship, equitation, and attire, are used, but there are vast differences I have seen in going from a Saddlebred show, to a rocky show, to a TWH show, and so forth.

Contact you breed registry and they should be able to point you to or send you a rule book.

I have a friend who breeds Rockies. If you would like, post a couple questions and I will send her a FB message.
