Hi everyone. My name is Stephanie and I am a beginning horse enthusiast. I am interested in learning about the ins and outs of showing horses, but am pretty ignorant.
Here is my question of the day: Does it really matter what my horse's tack looks like? I know how expensive "show tack" is and have also noticed that none of it is actually required in the ring, as long as your tack is neat and trim.
Do you think it makes a difference in the judge's minds (and in the score) if I have tooled and silver-donned tack?
I am anxious to hear your opinions on the matter! Feel free to share your experience.
Thanks in advance.
