    I think you get my point.

    If you are going to show a horse at halter and you want to do well your horse better be fit. It is just that simple even at local shows.

    If you are going to post a horse an ask how it will do at halter the only real way to know is to first fit the horse. Not all horses will fit up in a way that will make them good for halter. Ex. I do not care how much I work my ZFH mare or how much I feed her she will never look like a halter horse or do well at halter even though she has impeckable conformation. She is just not built in such a way to carry a lot of buck. However I have anouther mare that I could easily put a lot of bulk on her and fit her to do well at halter. The ZFH mare has better conformation but the other mare would still do better at halter if she was fit for it.

    And how is that???

    Do you think unfit horses will do well in halter???

    I was just talking about posters than said they wanted to know for the purpose of showing in halter.

    I guess I must be the only one to think it is really sad and pathetic that a halter horse is judged on how much bulk can be packed onto them instead of their actual conformation.


    But, then again, I guess if "fit is the name of the game in halter" that explains a lot.

    It would be very hard to know and judge how a horse would do at halter if the horse is not fit. Not all horses will fit up the same way and not all horses will have the bulk needed to do well in halter.

    I find that a little unfair because sometimes some horses may be in the best shape of their lives but still have a belly.
    Like my horse Ruester for example. He has amazing conformation and has won a few halter classes, even though he has a short back so his belly always hangs down.
    Then he is not halter fit. It is like saying a runner who is in great shap should be able to do well in a body building show. Not going to happen and most likely no matter how much the runner wants to add that muscle they will never be able to do it. They are just not build like that.

    ...You are deliberately trying to anger people on here, and that's not keeping with the ideals of this forum. So what if other peoples' horses aren't fit? How is that any of your business? Those who are so critical of others may often find fault within themselves.



    Additionally, I suspect your ideal halter horse looks like a beef bull walking on toothpicks. I'll pass. Thanks anyway.

    No.

    You are just angered.

    Again...posters ask how their horse will do at halter.
