Thanks for all the advice! I was just wondering if Appys differ from other stock horses.

Not really. You already know the clear hoof polish part. Other than that, not any different.

I'm pretty sure you would want to band his mane, and make sure it's relatively 'short' and tight...like any other stock horse type, that is shown in saddle classes. Tail, just leave natural.

For 4-H shows, I band my horses mane. A lot of people don't do anything to the manes besides brush it, spray it down and put it in a hood overnight just so it stays flat. However, this year I am going to start braiding because I can use the practice... lol
Make sure you do everything you can to make your horse look nice!
