    Showing Western Ranch Horse this season, I have some questions.

    Hello,
    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

    Its not a super common class. So I know here and there the rules change. A little silver I would say would better then just a saddle that is beat up. Most of the classes I have seen due ask you have a helmet (depending on the place) or a western hat. Think how it would be if you where going out into the west. Would would you have and look like?

    Here are the two saddles that I have to choose from:


    The one with a little silver


    The saddle without silver, but is older.



    So what do you think?

    N/A, its a local schooling show. I know its silly to ask since the show is so small, I just don't want to go in the ring looking out of place.

    No, its not, schooling shows are preparation for bigger shows :)

    I would use either saddle, use the one that fits the horse and you the best.
    If you have a nicely shaped cowboy hat wear it, but no shame in wearing a helmet. In some shows the hat is required.

    And for your last question, have you looked on YouTube? Also do you know what association rules you scholling show is using? That will give you the best idea of what is expected.

    I just looked and they are using AHSA and CSHA rules. And I've looked on YouTube and can't find anything, but I may not be searching for the right thing

    Local shows are a good beginning!
    If you aren't supposed to have silver on the saddle, I'd use the plain one if it fits. Can you contact the show management for the hat rule? Farm and ranch stores often carry a supply including ones that aren't expensive.
    This is the first I have heard of a Ranch Horse class. Sounds like a great idea to me!
