Western Show People: Kimberwick?
Hey all! I'm taking my friend's gelding to the Fair next week, and I've decided to enter him in the Novice Western Walk/Trot class. (This is an old OTTB, one eye, trained for eventing, so I figure we're going for the entertainment factor, rather than ever having a prayer of placing, lol). He does just fine in a western saddle, but he's never really been trained for western, so his jog isn't really a jog. Anywho, that doesn't matter cause...: I've been trying to find a western short shanked snaffle and I've been failing miserably. (He's 24yrs so we can't really pretend he's 5yrs and get away with a non-shanked snaffle). It's for next weekend. Ick.
Anywho, does anyone know if kimberwicks are legal in western showing? I'm assuming not, but just in case...
