No. I wanted to know what I could wear without looking out of place. The reason I may not do it is because I'm not sure I'll have the pivot down. If I can get the pivot ok then I'll do it. One direction he is good, very slow but good. The other direction he crosses behind the stationary foot rather than in front and then he wants to bend at the neck in that direction. (left I think). We'll see if I can figure it out.

Are you talking about a pull turn? AQHA has discouraged judges from including pull turns in patterns this year, as next year they will no longer be allowed. I doubt you'll have one.

I have a lesson tomorrow. (I only go to my trainer about 2 times per month because it's what I can afford - she's not cheap). If we have time maybe I'll talk to her about it. I have not mentioned to her that I am thinking about trying it yet. Maybe she'll have time to work with me also.

I don't know what it's called. I've only watched showmanship, It's usually after you jog up to the judge and then set-up for inspection. It seems like they do a quick 360 or 180 before leaving. And I think they back somewhere too....

A pivot would be when you turn towards your horse and go clockwise. A pull turn is counter-clockwise with the horse coming towards you. You mentioned pivoting in two directions, which is why I asked.

Oh. Like I said, I've only watched. Both ways I've been doing it would be to walk towards him and have him move away from me. I just switch sides.

You would never ask for a pivot from the off side.

Then I might be ok. Still slower than most but I think we are correct at least....

Have you tried your local craigslist? I see used show clothing on there in my area all the time...

I mentioned doing showmanship to my trainer and she said I should absolutely do it because the work I do on the ground will translate into the saddle etc. She also said the black suite and blouse will be perfectly fine so I'll do it....

^agree with your trainer....a black suit will work. You don't HAVE to have bling for Showmanship, there is no rule, and quite frankly...judges DO like the professional look of a plain suit, with a white blouse and an scarf knotted at the neck. I have 4 super blinged out SMS suits that I wear (AQHA). Two weekends ago I was at an AQHA show and wore a simple black fitted jacket (business jacket), my black showmanship pants, white blouse with a scarf and my black hat.
