Hello there I am new to the english world all together and have ridden western / trail ridden most of my life, so I would say I have little to know show experience. I am planning to enter a hunter show this June and am wondering if someone could give me a break down of what me and my horse are expected to look like, its a local show so it wont be incredibly competitive however I would like to go all out just for fun! I have two questions to start with 1.) What color are my pants suppose to be ? I have a tan pair but have always wanted a grey pair so was thinking of using this as a excuse to buy them but I am not sure if grey is ok? 2.) Are gloves a requirement ? What color and material should they be?
Now for the horsey part :) Since there are not many english shows in my area and I also ride western I am undecided on pulling my horses mane ... I have had appy's with no manes all my life so I REALLY like my QH mares mane Is there an alternative way to do there manes ? Is it impossible to plait a longer mane ? I will include a few pics of my mare & if you could give me ideas of what to do for her mane and also let me know if you think she would make a half decent hunter that would be great THANKS sorry for the novel !
