Don't use number holders. Pin your number to the pad.

Honestly, hair is best put entirely up under your cap. If you must do otherwise, a very tight bun would be appropriate.

^second. Don't use the number holders, they glare. If you YouTube hunter hair there's a good cronofhorse video on getting your hair up. I have long hair, and get it put up in my hat no problem.

For highlighter, baby oil will do. No need to spend $10 on a jar of the same thing :)

The best thing you can do to catch the judges eye is sit up, be confident, and have fun showing off what you've got! Huntseaters show off the rail to be seen. Be courteous and make sure you're not on the judges and that others can still navigate/pass you too.

Most saddle pads with the plastic number holders are just velcro-ed on. You can take them off and pin your number to the pad. If not, pin your number over the plastic. Plastic number holders are a big no-no in the QH world.

Also you will probably need to pay someone to braid your horse's mane the night before. Banding HUS horses in the QH world is a huge no-no. Atleast in Ohio.

A fake tail is a must aswell.

You can band if your horse is an all arounder. I always band but we spend more time western than english

I didn't think mine were velcroed on, but I tried and sure enough they were. I took them off :)

My horse has a roached mane so I never had to do anything but I did a french braid at the top of his tail and let the rest hang loose

Do not braid your horse's tail. Like two can pull it off, and they better have an awesome hind end and tail set to do it.
