    While you may think 'sweats' work - they don't - if they did every overweight person would be running around in them. They just make the horse uncomfortable.

    While the method of showing inhand is different the presentation of the horse is the same.
    Longeing...that's why I mentioned ponying for the younger horses.

    The presentation IS different. Stock horses...judges are looking for correction PLUS...muscle mass.
