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!
