Post Yearling Halter/Showmanship

Is it pretty much the same as adult halter/showmanship? Do they allow for more faults or is it exactly like for adult horses except a younger version? Thanks for reading! =)

To see the wind's power, the rain's cleansing, and the sun's radiant life, one need only to look at the horse.

well a young horse cant really compete with a full grown one because they arent donw growing, like usually a yearlings butt is talller then their withers and they have 'growing faults' that they will grow out of, thats just a guess, i actually have no idea, but thats my best guess :P

If there are no horses in heaven... im not going.

Most shows will have seperate classes for yearling for that very reason. You sould not show your yearling in an adult class, like you said too many differences in conformation to judge them together. Although they will not allow for faults, a fault is a fault no matter the age. But they look for different thing in yearlying than adults.
Are you planning on showing a yearling? Love showing the babies, so much fun. Post pics when you do.

^ But showmanship is not judged the same as a halter class. I have heard of yearlings competing in showmanship, and has long as they execute said manuvers, they have as big of a chance as any to win.

I've got a lovely bunch of Neuticals,
There they are all standing in a row

Big ones, small ones, some as big as your head
