Help best conditioned and sports horse class?

Hey,

Wondering if anybody could let me know what type of horse you need to do these classes? What tack you need to wear for both inhand and ridden and what I have to wear for inhand and ridden? Please help!

I am sorry but I do not know much about "sports horse" class. They look for young, athletic horses that have the conformation and movement in walk and trot, but that is about all I know.

Sport horses are athletic horses that are going to excel in jumping or dressage. I wasn't aware you could show them under saddle?

All showing can be done inhand or ridden unless it's for horses n ponies under 4years or minitures as far as I knew. I'm really wanting to know what the correct tack and equipment is for each class? Double bridle? Snaffle? Flash or no flash? Plaited? Etc etc?

Thank u

In NZ, as I understand it A Sporthorse is any horse used for eventing/showing etc that is not a TB or elegable for other Breed classes.I guess - a horse of mixxed breeding ie, warmbloodXTB /clyde / Stationbred x etc etc

I'm not terribly familiar with the sporthorse specific world, so take my advice for what it's worth. Fair warning.

I would show the horse in whatever gear he's used to wearing. If he's used to the double, lead him in the double. After a quick Google, I see most wearing a keuring bridle type setup, but I also seem to be looking at upper-level horses. I expect that a clean, well fitting snaffle bridle would be fine. I would say no flash. Definitely plait, mane and tail.

As far as what type of horse, almost any breed typically competing in jumping, eventing, or dressage has a sporthorse division. Also, I've seen Arab sporthorses, Friesian sporthorses, sportponies, etc. Breeds like QH, Paints, or gaiteds do not. I don't know what kind of registration or breed affiliation the horse needs.
