My horse got bit yesterday-can she still show in halter class?

Help! My horse was bitten in the side yesterday by another horse. She now has a few scrapes from the teeth-few inches long, not very wide. I know judges consider overall conformation, but what about things like this?

It is one of those unavoidables and no the judge shouldn't be looking at bite marks. The look for conformation and unsoundness. My mare fell in the trailer and somehow cut the skin on her stifle. Only a skin cut and about 4" long. Since the show hadn't started I told the judge what had happened and should I just pack up and go home. He said as long as she didn't favor it I could show. We placed in halter.

In halter the judge is looking for the horse that is put together the best for it's breed. The judge should not take off for a few minor scrapes. How a horse is turned out does make a difference and if two equally well put together horses are standing side by side something minor could impact a judges mind but otherwise, no. It should not be an issue. Good luck in your class.

Nope, you're fine :)
They do make grooming chalk that can mask it a little, but I don't think it's really worth it, seeing as it doesn't make much of a difference.
