How to hide this?

My horse has these white marks on his nose due to an idiot tying him up with a chain. I usually show english, so the noseband on his bridle easily covers it. In western pleasure, however, you don't ride with a noseband, so these will look terrible.

Do you guys have any ideas on how to cover this up?

Matte foundation and/or bronzer.

I think he'll be fine, really. You're not being judged on his scars. (: They don't look bad at all.

First of all, kudos to you for being versatile :) You will be a better horsewoman in the end!

Have you tried ointments for growing back the hair? Believe it or not, I use Bag Balm. It's actually made to put on the udders of cows to keep them soft and cleaner ... but it really grows the hair fast! Just apply it every night till it all grows back :) Again, it's just called Bag Balm. Here is a link to the stuff -
Bag-Balm,Vermonts Original Moisturizing Ointment -10oz on eBay!

This is just on ebay, but you can get it prety much anywhere - tack stores, feed stores, online ... you name it :)

Hope that helped!! For now? I would just use some kid-friendly Crayola washable paint as close to his color as you can, that you can jut wash off after the show :)

Yes, make up or those grease sticks they mark cattle with. I think they come in colors.
Personally I think he looks fine & what a stroke of luck for him finding you.

Look into Shapley's Touch Up spray. I got a few cans very cheap at our local tack sale but have yet to try them.

^^^ I agree with using the Shapleys Touch up.

I'll third the Shapley's. Also in a pinch a bit of shoe polish rubbed on and then dot with a dry stippling brush for texture will also work.

I'd just leave them, they're pretty common -- not from being tied up in a chain but from a bosal or noseband that rubbed.
