Question about a Morgan and halter

Hey everyone. I have never shown in halter with anything accept paints and QH's but I am trying talk a friend of mine into coming to a show with me next month. Her handsome boy is a morgan and we're not sure if we should put him in a bridle? An araby looking show halter? Or a leather halter?? Then with one bridle we were not sure if maybe we should leave on the caveson(SP) or not? Yeah I have no clue and then should we just square him up or park out? Thnx everyone. We tried to look up some pictures but they were not helpful at all.

With a Morgan, you can use a leather halter with a stud chain ONLY if you show him in western attire (you're dressed as western). You can't use an Arab halter, those only go on horses that are Arabs. You can use a bridle (any English bridle and English only, no western bridles, just western halters), but yes, you need the cavesson. If you show in a double bridle you will use the cavesson and only the curb bit, you don't need the snaffle.

If you have anymore questions just ask, I show Morgans.

If your horse will park out, you have to park him out. If he won't set him up as square as you can.

I don't know if it's legal to show in that bridle. Do you show in that bridle regularly?

he is pretty though. Oh yeah and you would have to braid his forelock, mane, and tail. French braids, not hunter braids.

I've never halter shown.. so that's what im trying to figure out! Lol. I have a black dressage one, and a brown crosby if that works better.

Thanks! So he does have to be braided? I've heard mixed advice about that? Lol.
