    Jaydee - I don't allow him to graze of his own accord. But he's just so strong! I'll just need to practice :)

    Faye - thanks for the advice. He'll just have to go hungry for a few minutes!

    This is why I suggested grass reins because he'll be pulling against himself and not against your hands. It sounds hard but the fact that you can't always stop him doing it is a win for him and its telling him that its OK to do it
    I didn't realize you were talking about 'in the ring' as that's not the place for them and they are generally banned on show grounds at higher level along with draw reins and side reins - though many riding club shows do allow them in first ridden classes because they attract novice riders and people introducing green ponies into the show ring they tend to be more lenient (I know you're not in that age group btw)

    Thinking about it.. It's only in his headcoller that its happened. So a bridle could be totally different. He does get a flick with the leadrope and I'm almost certain he knows he's doing something bad. The old soul's quite mischievous when he wants to be!

    What would you consider to be a good individual show to do in a ridden class?

    I'm assuming you're doing a hunter class?
    Ride forward and 'present yourself' to the judge. I would then go for a short active walk, then trot and canter on each rein changing rein across the centre of your showing area and finally a (controlled!!!) gallop along the longest stretch of the arena if the grounds suitable (Judges or Steward will tell you if its not) - don't attempt any flying changes unless your horse is 100% going to get it right, judges don't expect it, just go back to trot and then into canter. Bring your horse to a nice square halt in front of the judge at the end and 'salute'
    Don't forget to change your posting diagonal when you change rein
    Keep it short and simple, judges get bored with someone who goes on and on especially in a big class

    I'll be doing ridden veteran so I know there won't be any galloping. I'm assuming it will be just basics as there will be horses of a variety of ages. Am I right in saying it will be walk, trot and canter?

    I've never done veteran classes at all but I have a UK friend that does and she does walk, trot and canter on each rein - no gallop.

    NO gallop in veteran classes if they are VHS affiliated (severely marked down if you do). If they are not affiliated then go for a good gallop as judges like it.

    My show is generaly stand horse up for judge, walk away from the judge at an angle towards the track, as soon as you hit the track into trot. Trot a figure of 8 with an extended trot accross the diagonal, then canter a figure of 8 with trot to change the rein and then a gallop, back to trot and then halt, salute and walk back to line.

    Yeah, I won't be galloping. The shows on grass and I'm not risking him slipping, especially at his age. We're also not affiliated either. Thanks for the help :)
