So im considering on doing a halter class with my Paint in APHA, he's pinked skin and when I put a chain on him he will act like it hurts and when I just barley touch the lead he will resond very fast to get out of the preasure. So my question is do you have to have a chain in it? Or can you show a different way?
I am not 100% sure, but I have never seen anyone compete with the chain going over the nose. Only time I have seen that was in halter classes showing stallions. You should show your horse with chain fed under the chin for showmanship as this is the norm.
