Pulling Coggins is a good habit to get into.

With all the outbreaks lately - I don't take my horses to events that don't require them!

Is the show an open show or breed show?
If you go why not enter a halter class? You'll learn what you need to work on. Do you have horse friends close by. You could all get together and hold a "practice class" just to see how he does.

Open Show, i only have 1 horse that is registered, and i'm slowly getting her prepared for next show season. And there are no breed shows close to me for her breed. As for him, all my horsie friends live off the mountain . I could ask a friend about it and haul him and see how he would do. That is a great idea Dustbunny!! Thank you!!!
