    Nice Enough To Show In?

    Someone has asked me if I would show one of their horses this year. I said yes, I absolutely love this horse. But I have to use my own tack, which isn't a problem. However, I was also planning on showing my mare, hoping that, on the odd chance, she would be ready for riding classes. I was planning on riding the other horse in most of the classes since he is more advanced, so I was going to use my Wintec AP, which is my nicer saddle. But there is quite a size difference between my mare and the other horse. He requires a wide gullet, and my mare is slender, so a wide gullet would be too big for her. She does have her own saddle that fits her quite well, but it's rather well used. The flaps are faded, and there are worn marks on the pommel and edge of the cantle. I noticed that there are two rings missing from one side of it as well. Even after having the saddle for a while, I just realized, when I was cleaning it, that my irons don't even match. << That's not a problem, though. I can easily switch them with my other ones in between classes. I was just wondering if it would be presentable in a show.

    Oiled up & shined, I believe it will be fine. On the rubs marks at the back, just use a brown felt to hide them.

    It depends on what kind of show it is. If its just local stuff then yes, I'd say its fine. You cover most of it up anyways! Just make sure it's as clean as it possibly can be and you bridle and girth match! :)

    There are only ever two rings, on the right hand side of the saddle. Nobody will notice what you're riding in, while you're in the saddle. Please just take care to make sure it fits your horse well though; it doesn't look terribly well-made, which is a strike against fitting well as it is.
