Western rider in Fun Show

We have lots of Fun Shows here in the area. One of the classes is Leadline/beginner trail class.

Normally one of the obstacles to perform is the ground poles. The instructions call for a 2 point over poles.

I would like to know what is a western rider to do? Does the western rider do a 2point? If yes, could you post a link or a picture to show what it looks like?

Thanks so much

That's kind of an odd instruction for a trail class, if it were me I would just stand in the saddle a little bit with some bend to your legs - ranch horse pleasure style.

This is probably what most people will do:

But I would do this:

You might ask show management to clarify.

Yes, it does seem weird to me also (but I am no expert). This is what the little guy did.

I just don't understand it for a western rider. Who would want that horn in your gut. LOL But I do see with that second photo up there might be a good way to go.

Thank you, that does help.
