    How do you think he would do in hater shows?

    So I have been thinking about showing my boy in halter classes next year, I don't expect to go far, nor do I really want to, for now i'm think open shows and 4H stuff, do you think he would do alright or would it be a waste of time? (time is not a thing I have a lot of) thanks for the help!! Also sorry some of the pics are at a kinda weird angle, my mom was working him and I was on the out side standing on a chair, lol, i'm to short to see over the round pen panels.

    I say go for it. You will learn some new things and have lots of fun. I would start conditioning him a bit if you decide to do it and tone him up some

    Nice horse

    I think you should definetly do 4H shows. In 4h, the classes are mostly judged on you and how well you and your horse work together. Also, the pattern is a major part of the class. Only a fraction is judged on the horse itself and its conformation. Even though your horse does have very nice conformation ;)
    Just make sure he has his basics down. Walk, trot, back, setting up, turn on honches, turn on forhand, and even a sidepass. This way youll be ready.
    Well, I hope this helps and good luck!

    Clip him and he'd be set.

    I think you should. He is some what squared up in almost every pic that he is just standing in...he is sooo cute!

    Would if I could, ever tried clipping a horse that was beat on the head, and ear and nose twitched, lol, doesn't work to well, it will be a long while before we try clipping. I have shown him the clipper and he doesn't like them one bit. Don't blame him.

    He is very nice looking and I think he would do quite well in lower level shows. His head may be a touch large to get into the very high levels but he is very cute and squares up nicely.
