    Ok! Thanks girl!

    See I have to buy things for western and english..

    So im going to get the western apparel first then get the english apparel since all I need for the english classes is the jacket and shirt.i have everything else..

    Well, I've been meaning to buy jeans.lol...and today Im going to buy a pair of brown cowboy boots and black cowboy. Well my nana is buying them..so that's one les thing I need to worry about..

    So ill try to find a cheap but nice belt.just for now..ill buy a nicer one once I get another pay check.

    Ok, I have to different saddle pads.. I have a thick black saddle pad(isnt the pretty thing in the world.its been ridden in everytime I ride) and I have a fleece wither riser thing(my saddle is too big at the withers and hits his withers, but both of those things fix that problem)..I have two solid San Jaun Pads that I put on top of the black pad.. they are pistachio and a red one.. So should I get a slinky to match those colors?

    I just noticed you said belt buckle..not belt.lol... Do you think I should just buy a belt buckle or buy a belt with rhinestones or silver on it?

    I have a few more questions..haha..i swear ill shut up soon! Haha

    I have a brown saddle and brown/silver headstall... Can I still have on a black cowboy and black boots..and maybe black in my shirt?? Or do I need to go brown?

    And also, Do I need to clip Duke(my horse)? Right now he has a medium winter coat.. but I really don't think I can clip his whole body and make him look half decent.haha...but do I need to clip a bridle path? Or his fetlock? Anything like that?

    No your tack can be brown and you can wear black

    If you can afford a flashy belt/buckle combo then go that route, if not get a black belt and spend more on the buckle

    It will be easier to get a red/black slinky the pastchio so I would got the red/black route.

    I wouldnt body clip unless you have done it before and you could blanket him after to keep him warm, your better off just point clipping.
    Bridle Path
    Trim along hoof/hair line

    I would scissor:
    Face whiskers-muzzle-surrounding eyes(make them flush with his coat, don't dig into the coat then it will look like he has wholes in his face)
    If he has any longer hair under his chin and bottom of muzzle (my horse gets like billy goat kinda longer hairs in the winter under his chin, if your horse gets those too just trim them level with the rest of his hair)
    If he has any long hair sticking out of his ears just trim it level with the curve of his ear. Don't worry about the inside

    Ok..wait...so his hairs above his eyes..not his eyelashes..the ones above it..they are suppose to be trimmed?..i never knew that!

    Could I just trim his muzzle..i have done that many times..but I have also scissored them...

    Anther thing... I have decided since my friend is only riding english in this show that I will too. And use all my money on just one discipline..then my next paycheck I will buy everything western I need... And I completely forgot I have got to get my vet out this week to do an updated coggins and update Duke on his vaccines!!

    Do you show english or western? Because I have a few questions concerning English show apparel..

    Btw. I don't have a trainer. Which is why I am asking you all these questions.. lol

    Yeah the whiskers above and under his eyes.

    If you feel comfortable trimming his muzzle with the clippers then go for it, I usually do it with the scissors in the winter (im in MN so my horses get alot of hair) because their face is not a place to make a mistake before a show and with all the hair here its hard to make it all even, so I just scissor the whiskers.

    I am mainly western now but when I was in Youth I showed both.
    That's what this site is for, ask away! You can always Pvt msg me too if you ever need anything.

    Ok, thanks ilovestitch for all your help!! I had some questions but my friend answered them...although...a few questions I have is...

    Do I need to have my hair up in a bun and in a net thingy?

    And tish, thanks!
        01-21-2010, 04:07 PM
    At least up in a bun yes, if you can make a tight bun without fly aways then you don't need the net but the net is just easier
