It depends on what level. Open shows - sure, go ahead. In any breed show you could/maybe/might get away with doing performance halter, not regular halter. He's not fitted, and a little small size-wise. You might want to try ponying him/long trotting him for several minutes a day, just to put on that muscle mass and add a high % fat:protein feed if you're serious about it. But if you're just showing halter for fun to get him experience in the show pen, I wouldn't worry about the placings and just focus on training.

I was talking about the other picture with the "diaper butt" show horse your horse is beautiful!!!! I think it should be illegal to breed horses with HYPP. Though I know a lot of the big time show people would probably disagree.

Oh no I knew that think there was some misreading. I was just thanking you for thinking he was beautiful. Like I said she saved a long time to get him. I also would like to see n/h and h/h horses not bred.

Ditto I like the dark points too as you can see.
