Trail Class Question?

Can you use direct reining at a trail class? Thanks!

Don't see why not. Is it a schooling show or a breed show? Mixed classes or one discipline only (meaning, do they have both English and western classes throughout the day, or is it just one discipline for the entire show)?

I would say it depends. If it's a young horse class, a schooling show, an informal/fun show then direct rein is possible. If it's a sanctioned, competitive class then it's one hand and neck reining all the way through the course.

Just western the whole day, its an all-breed schooling and competitive show if that helps at all. :)

If your horse is over the age of you can't. If you have a junior horse under the age of 6 and you are riding in a snaffle, then you can ride 2 handed.

I agree with GotADunQH, when I competed in tails this is how every show was.
