English Disciplined Rail - HUH??
So, I plan to enter my first horse show in early June. I'm a little clueless on some things...help!
-What is "English Disciplined Rail?" What would you be expected to do?
-Do you think my horse and I could learn English Showmanship in a month's time (with weekly lessons)?
-From your experience, which sections are more popular (with more competition): Novice Rider or 18+? (I qualify for both and have to pick one...I'd rather be in a section with fewer riders!)
-If English classes are in the AM, Western after lunch, do you take out your horse's braids/plaits, somehow straighten his mane, & band it before his Western classes?
-Would I be laughed off the show grounds if I wore a black GPA helmet for a Western Pleasure or Horsemanship class?
Thanks guys! I'm sure I'll have more questions during the next month of nerves too!!
