Would an Injury Prevent her from showing Halter?

I've been out of the horse industry except for oogling pictures since I hit high school (I'm almost 27 now). I rode English and competed in the local shows at my club and did well but I haven't ridden in way too many years.

I've never done the halter shows or anything like that and I've only ridden western on trail rides 2-3 times in my life.

I found a gorgeous filly that is essentially my dream horse but she had an injury earlier this year and I believe she will have a scar across her stifle/bum area. Not sure if it will last forever or fade but I'm guessing with the severity of the injury, she'll have it for life.

Would the scar affect her in halter classes? I can only assume that it would but since I have no experience in this I wanted to ask. I'm also curious about if she'd make a decent English horse instead of Western but that would be a different thread.

A few last questions: can someone explain what "breeders trust eligible" means? Would I have to pay to enroll her in it if she's only eligible? I've read about the breeders trust program before but can someone explain it to me in plain english? All the technical talk confused me.

Ah...so much to learn if I want to get back in the game and completely switch from being trained in English to learning western.....

Figured I'd post this here as it may be more appropriate!

BT is a program that you sign up for and pay a fee. Then at the end of the year you get money back from the registry for the number of points you earned. It's good if you're going to be doing a massive amount of breed shows, good to have if you want to sell the horse as a show horse, but not needed if you're not going to do a lot of breed showing.

APHA: "It’s a program that pays cash dividends for points earned by nominated horses at APHA-approved events. The Trust is designed so that everyone responsible for the success of an outstanding foal is rewarded financially: the stallion subscriber, foal nominator and horse’s owner."

At the breed show level, a scar would count against her unless you can cover it up. That's why most halter horses are kept indoors 24/7. You can still do showmanship, and show halter at the open show level just fine.

Thank you! So since she's advertised as eligible...that means I'd have to pay to enroll her, right?

Yes, the when she was a foal it sounds like she was eligible but her breeder did not pay for it. You will have to pay for it and you, the breeders, and the stallion owner will get a reward back. It's $100 when they are foals, but I don't know how much it is for older horses, or if it changes.
