Showing Western Ranch Horse this season, I have some questions.
This year I am trying something new with a new horse. I will be trying walk/jog Western Ranch Horse and I've never shown in this or even seen it be done. I have been told what the judges look for by my instructor but I have a few more questions. The show that I am going to is a local schooling show that is pretty laid back.
#1: I know that your saddle and tack isn't supposed to have silver on it. We have two saddles that we are choosing from and one has very little silver on it and the other is really old and only tooled. I can get pictures of these two saddles a little later today. Which saddle would you use? The one with silver is a dark brown and the tooled one is a redish brown. Like I said, I will get pictures of these.
#2: Do I have to wear a cowboy hat? I have ridden English my whole life and I do not own a cowboy hat and am not sure I can get one before the show.
#3. Does anyone know where or have videos or pictures of a Western Ranch Horse and rider turned out for a show?
Thanks and I will get the pictures today
