Help! What braid is best?!
So I'm going to a show in a few weeks, on my friends Standardbred.
I've never ridden a Standardbred in a show, what kind of braid would be best ?
Anything else I should know about showing Standards?
I'll post a picture of his mane. Help! Haha, thanks guys.
As an owner of two Standardbreds, and a show groom for one of my friends who heavily shows her SBs, I can help!
What kind of show is it? If you're allowed to plait (make sure it's not in the rules saying "no plaiting").. I would just do traditional plaiting, of the tail and mane. Turnout for a SB is like turnout for any other horse, neat, presentable, and clean.
Showing standardbreds is like showing any other horse... depending on what you're doing (inhand or ridden), as long as you keep your horse moving active on your aids, you should be fine.
Are you showing in a SB ring or another?
All the best.
My friend need sher horse to be socialised a bit before she can take him to shows herself.
Oh, most gymkhanas dont judge on presentation, and plaiting is usually not mandatory. If you want to plait, I think rossettes would be ok, but you could probably just get away with conditioning his main each day leading up to the comp, then just brushing it and leaving it loose. Maybe pull it so its even, and brush thru a little baby oil for shine, but I dont think it will alter your results.
In that case, rossettes.
Haha. Around here, gymkhana presentation involves a lot of glitter, twinkle toes, and hearts clipped into the horses bum.
Pretty much at this gymkahna it's just bath the horse, braid main and tail, black hoof paint, clean tack, clean rider. :P Yeah. Should be okay. Lol.
& Thanks guys!
