Haha, well... over hear the five is the smallest bill we've got, and I don't think a coin would be very convenient, could leave some strange inprints.

People actually spray the money to themselves? ROTFL. Okay, seriously, that ain't right.

I don't see a problem with it in just regular classes. In the money-sitting classes, yeah that's not right, but just standard riding classes I think it's okay. If you have a bad seat, a little bit of hairspray will NOT stick you to the horse and make it look like you are a perfect rider. I think it would offer the good rider a bit of friction on a horse that was slicked off, well groomed, and possibly show-sheened.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog:

It is common practice in schooling and 4-H shows around here. One of the leaders will bring a can of hairspray and goes around and sprays everybody. It isn't really an unfair advantage if everybody at the show is doing it in my opinion. I think the point of it is because the first class was always showmanship, which horses would be showsheened for. Then if you ride a showsheened horse bareback its hard, so you spray yourself and the horse with the hairspray to counteract the showsheens slickness, plus it makes it so your saddle doesn't slide around as much (because of the showsheen) later.

Although, if it was a money class I wouldn't do it.

If you have to use product to ride in a class and to help you out - chances are you shouldn't be riding in that class anyway. This is why I see so many people fall in BB classes.

When I was a kid showing in 4-H, we had bareback equitation, and hairspray was a common practice. We didn't use it in gaming though, defeats the purpose (which often WAS to fall off, that was half the fun. We were dorks.)

When I got out of 4-H and started showing more seriously, I was a little disappointed to find we didn't have bareback equitation anymore - I always aced that one!
