Talking western pleasure tips

Hey guys,
I was just wondering if anyone could give me some awesome western pleasure tips... none of that sissy crap, more little things that makes you even a tiny bit more noticable. Please don't say tips like heels down or look ahead because I know that kind of stuff... just things that help you win in a show. Oh and if you have any halter tips that would be great aswel.
Thankyou ;) x

When you enter the ring its all about picking a good spot on the rail. If you're a novice rider, don't pick a spot right behind the spooky horse that bucks. If you know your horse's jog is faster than that super WP horse don't pick a spot on the rail near it. You don't want to be over taking it in 2 seconds. Setting yourself up for success start's from the beginning, so picking the right spot is essential.

Perfect reining back wards. This is something that can either bring you a place or lose you the class. I've seen so many people with wonderful horses only to be let down when asked to rein back. Make sure your horse knows the signals to move back and it isn't sluggish. He should have clearly defined steps and back straight.

I know a few more but I'm too tired to write more And I'm sure all the other people on here will cover it for me.

Well even things that make your horse the little bit more nicer... well i've only been to one show after almost 2 years of training and now we finely have a Qh mare that will be going off to training soon. Well I mainly need tips on looks and products to use on my horses... whats in style right now??

I have always found doing some shows where you just go to practice. If you have to correct your horse in a big way in the show ring, it won't matter at a little nonbreed show and your horse will learn it still has to behave.

Do you have pictures of your QH?

Can you post some pics of your horse? Also, we need to see how you ride so we can at least point out some of your flaws and make sure you correct them.
