Any Pinto People Out There?

I'm in the process of purchasing a pinto :) He'll be coming home on Thursday, and I'm toying with the idea of showing him this summer if he works out as well as I think he will.

So, I'm wondering - does anyone on this forum show the Pinto circuit? I am used to showing Arabs and doing some small open shows, and I have no idea what to expect from a Pinto show. I know Pinto is really just color variation, so there may be all types of breeds there - is there a standard for judging? Or is it based on what breed your horse appears to be; like, if I have a stocky qh/paint looking pinto will he be judged by a different standard than a saddlebred looking pinto?

What about show grooming? Again, I'm used to Arabs where we grease up our horses faces, don't pull manes, can't use fake tails, and don't paint white hooves with black polish. What is the norm in a pinto show?

I'm planning on checking out a show before competing (if my new guy is even at a level to compete - his main job will be trail horse!) but would love some info so I can start planning! Thanks!

PintoTess - Congrats on your ribbons :) Hopefully, my new pinto and I will be as successful!

Wakiya - he's registered Pinto, so I guess the registry? I'm so new to this non Arabian horse world! He has lovely pinto coloration as well!

I ride a paint gelding (he goes by the name Moo ). He makes a great English mount, but also rides Western. Does small, local hunter divisions and Walk-Trot-Canter classes.

I would have a more professional person look him over. Conformation effects abilities, and while some paints have been known to jump 5' fences, some do better in hack classes.

I'm not too familiar with any paint-based shows, but I'm sure they're fun.

PS: Moo has very little mane. Seriously. It's sort of sad. Would never dream of pulling what he has.
