If showmanship judges you & how you handle/present your horse. Can a very non-perfect horse place?
I would love to be able to show my old boy, Dunn in a class but I am really limited because he doesn't have very good conformation. He is pretty old, and he also has cancer so he has some large tumors around his sheath. He is only used for very light riding, so I would not even think of showing him in some of the under-saddle classes.
Here are some pictures of him.
Would it be possible to show him in showmanship?
