    As he is not youngstock, bridle with reins over the head is correct turnout, no need for Inhand bridle,

    As for tail, if you can plait if very neatly then you could get away with it. Pulling looks better, If you don't like the idea of pulling the tail you could use a tail rake to give the appearance of a pulled tail (I use a tail rake as Reeco would kill me if I pulled his tail)

    This is me showing Reeco in an inhand class, he is turned out like a hunter so aim for this (replace the jods with trousers. I only wore jods as I'd left my trousers at home.

    Thank you! I'll be doing jumping later and possibly the ridden class as well so I'll need to wear my jods. I can't change either because I'll be hacking to it. Will it make a difference if I wear jods instead of trousers?
    Sorry for the million questions! They just keep popping into my head.

    Reeco looks stunning!

    Questions are fine don't worry about it.

    You can get away with jods in an inhand class (I did in the above show where I got a 2nd!) at local level.

    It is only local anyway, so that's good. What will the class entail? Like what will I be asked to do? I've done ridden classes before but this is my first in hand and first show with this horse

    Inhand class:
    Enter the ring at walk and turn left (so that you are going round on the right rein with the horse between you and the judge).
    The steward will stop you in one corner of the ring where you should proceed to trot the horse round to the back of the line (when told to by the steward)
    The judge will then pull you into line.
    Then you will be asked to one at a time stand the horse up for the judge to have a look at conformation. You may be asked questions such as how old, what do you do with him outside of showing etc.
    You will then be asked to walk away from the judge and trot back. My biggest tip here is to trot back directly at the judge (they will get out of the way), judges hate it when people don't trot back at them. Continue trotting round the back of the line, about half way along the line stop and stand your horse up, nod to the judge and walk back to your place in the line.
    When every one has had thier turn the line will be asked to walk round and the judge will call you back into your final placings.

    Do you have to trot around the back or is the front okay?

    So you stop halfway along the back of the line?

    Roughly, if it is a very short line then go to the end.

    Don't forget to turn your horse (in hand) at the end so you're on the outside - eg - the judge is seeing your horse not you.
    Under saddle I prefer beige breeches & black leather gloves with grey tweed, brown gloves and canary/yellow breeches look better with green/brown tweeds
