Smile Shows scheduled, all-around help needed (some gaited)

Okay, so I have a few shows scheduled now to prep for fair and a bunch of questions, as the only shows I've done have been our 4-H group's show last spring and fair last summer.

First question: On one of the show bills I have, it says chaps are prohibited for equitation classes; that pants and boots must be worn instead. Since when are chaps prohibited? Aren't they typically a requirement for eq classes?

Second: On another show bill, it says that riders may not enter w/t/c canter classes if they are doing w/t, and vice-versa. However, with most shows and circuits, isn't it typical that it's dependant on the horse? Meaning, if you do w/t/c with one horse, another of your horses can still perform w/t at the show? Just seems odd to me, that's all.

Third: We might be buying a 2009 Valley BP stock trailer, 2 horse, and I'm wondering if it's safe to tie a horse outside it without a truck hooked up? I'm used to goosenecks, so I'm not sure if this is common or safe practice with BPs.

Fourth: This is for you gaited people. A COSCA show mid-June has some gaited classes in it, and a few ?s about that. First of all, Artie doesn't gait anymore. He paces, though it's very comfortable. He's a Paso Fino, though, and by tradition, this breed is always shown riding 2-handed, even though I will be riding Western. But, since he doesn't gait anymore, should I ride 1-handed or 2?

Also on the gaited classes, can I enter in both Easy-Gaited Canter and Easy-Gaited No Canter classes? The bill states:
"***PLEASE NOTE: ALL WALK TROT ENTRIES MUST NOT HAVE CANTERED AT ANY COSCA APPROVED SHOW OUTSIDE OF THE NOVICE DIVISION, WITH THE EXCEPTION OF THE JACKPOT AND OPEN WALK-TROT PLEASURE CLASSES"
Does this mean I can only enter one or the other? In which case, I'll probably do canter. I haven't done any COSCA shows.

Fifth: What does "YA" mean on the show bill? Like, "YA Western Horsemanship."

I'll probably have more questions, thanks for your time!

First question: They mean TALL boots. Chaps are not typically allowed.

Third question: Tie him to a piece of twine that is attached to the trailer. Never tie to the trailer itself

Fifth: I believe that means "young amateur" or "young adult"

Thanks. So, to clarify, I can wear chaps for my Western events?

Kay, another question. What pants do you wear under chaps? I need black, but I'm not sure what brands are good and not overly expensive. Last year I just used a pair from Kohls, without chaps, would those be okay, you think?

Is it okay to braid Molly in hunter braids the night before and stall her overnight? We're leaving at 7am and to leave time to braid, I'd have to get up around 4! You think she'll be okay having them in overnight?

We're pretty much ready for sunday; we just picked up the trailer tonight, and I'm not going to expect too much from this show, honestly. Neither Arty or Molly are really in show condition, Molly hasn't been ridden in a few weeks, and they're both lacking muscle. We'll see, though. Wish us luck!
