Please help! Some questions about a upcoming horse show!?
Okay I have showed last year in walk/trot ... it was my first year. This weekend (may 31st and june1st) is my first horse of my second show season. I am in walk trot canter and I am in hunter classes and some western classes and those are the hightest classes at the show. First off, I only have jodphurs and paddock boots ... will I be judged against or stand out if I don't have tall riding boots in the hunter classes?? Second... my horse really doesn't like to keep her head like a hunter or like a western pleasure horse, I can kind of manage to keep it in the correct position in the walk and trot but I can't in a canter (or lope). She feels the need to have her neck and head like a racehorse while cantering (okay well not quite that bad ,,, but you get the picture) .... so will I have major points taken off for that ?? Please help asap (as soon as possible)!!
Thanks in Advance !
