I really don't know anything about Arabs or halter classes, and especially not the two combined. I just bought an Arab and I was wondering if she was "acceptable" for a halter class. She has a half blue eye,,, is that a major fault?
Also, what do I need? Should I get a fancy Arab halter? Any tips I should know?
Your help is appreciated!
I like her!! If you can get her to stand correctly I think she'll go well. She has a long neck, but cutting her bridle path will make it appear shorter.She has a lovely head.
Does she have papers, and is she pure or part?? If she has papers, you can show her.
Definitely get her a show halter. Find one that will suit her face. I love the rolled black leather slips and the traditional arab halters!
She is a bit short in the back and has a point at the croup that leads down steaply to the tail. Other than that she is very nice.
I know that bumpy croup drives me crazy. She's full, but I don't have her papers, she was never registered. I know where she was born though, and I believe both her sire and dam live there. How much does it cost to register her? Does she have to be registered to show?
You can take her to an arab show and put her in the open halter class though. I've watched a couple arab classes, they do use those special halters and they take a long whip and the hold it up somehow in front of the horse to get the horse to stick their nose way up in the air and then stand almost parked out, like the back legs are further back...
