I'm sure hogged is acceptable in Eventing, I can't see why not.

I roached my girl's mane awhile back and I LOVE it. It is so nice to not have a fugly mane to mess with.

It isn't exactly flattering on her, but like I tell her, we aren't entering any beauty pageants anytime soon.

This is his general headset. I don't have an up-close pic, but he's coming for trial most likely at the end of this week, so I will take about a bazillion pictures then!! <3

Sunny, I think she is adorable roached! You can let the center grow out a bit and arch it into the poll and withers, like they do on mules and fjords to give the optical illusion of more arch and muscle.

Eventer, if you are taking him on trial you might want to wait to roach until when (if) you purchase him! He looks cute.

Oh, of course Karlie, I wouldn't roach him on trial, his owner would probably be pretty grumpy. o.o I even ask about horses I'm leasing. Like, I had a lease on this little Morgan mare, signed for just over a year, and I wanted to give her a chase clip. I made sure the owner knew I wanted to do that, and that it would probably be completely grown back if I decided not to lease her the next year. She was happy I asked, and was cool with it. ^^

Oh, and y'all can call me Ven, or Ray, or Rachel, I don't really care. just not my full user, that makes it sound like I'm in trouble. lol

Thanks, he always got comments but funny enough no one wanted to ride him

Well it was in New Zealand at an A&P show, inhand and flat showing. They didn't have any in hand pony classes or any decent ridden pony classes so I went in the sport horse ring. The judge did say if my pony was bigger he probably would have placed but it was nice being in a ridden show with a spacious ring and no bucking bolting horses to contend with cause it usually sent my pony into panics. And my pony memorized the format of open ribbon days run by pony clubs so I thought it would be a good experience for him to have a change.

I have read the showing rules for nz shows and I am pretty sure that no where in them it says anything about judges being able to disqualify people for hogging a mane, even in a turn out class I think you just get marked down. There is recommended attire for classes but when the class is judging the horse or rider I think they only mark the gear and attire in the event of a tie between competitors. I have no idea if its the same for the usa.

NZ does offer a lot of low key training/competition days which I prefer because they are so casual in attire. Dressing up pretty hasn't been my thing and I don't crank my horses heads in on an iron grip contact so it usually puts me out of contention for the ribbons. You still learn a lot, even if its not what to do.

His mane is not pulled, its about 5/6 inches right now. But not all the same length, kinda like someone trimmed it with scissors and did a crappy job. I don't know how fast it grows, I've only just met him... And FYI, i think a spunky little roach/Mohawk on a mini would look adorable!!
I think you just convinced me to roach his mane...

Okay, thanks! :) Rules might be a little different seeing as I'm in the USA, but I should think that a horse is a horse, and a judge is a judge, and things should be pretty similar.

Yay!! Haha, make sure you post some pics here when you're finished!

I'll be going out to see my guy this weekend probably. And I'm going to clear up some boarding details tomorrow, then we'll most likely trailer him over asap for the trial, so I'll make sure to take pics of his mane and his headset and stuff so you guys can see what I'm talking about with the funky mane length. ^^
