Stallions in the show ring?
What's your opinion on Stallions in the show ring? (ie: trail, vwestern pleasure, english flat classes, halter, hunter/jumpers...etc)
Thanks. :) :-)
I had a friend that often showed his stallion in our WP class. He would use vick's vapor rub on his nose. The stallion was always well mannered and a pleasure to be around.
That is very interesting about the vick's vapor rub!! I should try that next year :) Thanks that's really neat!
I was around one stallion years ago that was first or champion every time he was in the ring with one particular rider and a dangerous train wreck (that usually got the gate) with another rider. I realize that there are exceptions and this is a very general answer. However, I think it's more about who is at the wheel than what they are driving.
I have never had a problem showing or riding my stallion with mares. He was typically the most well mannered of the horses. I rode in drill team and after I few weeks I was asked when I was going to ride my stallion. I had been riding him every time.
I see absolutely no problem with it so long as the stud has received good training and has someone capable riding him.
How else does a stallion get "proven"? What do you mean, opinion on stallions in the show ring?
ImagineThat, Well I plan on showing my young stud next year. And I was just curious about peoples opinons about stallions showing with geldings and mares. I know they have certain classes strickly for studs, like halter.
I personally don't think I'll have a problem with my boy; but you never know. I just like to see others opinons about studs that's all. :)
thanks for everyons opinons, I really want to try the vapor rub on his nose when I start showing. That's super interesting!
Oh.. ok. My trainer did the Vick's thing with his old jumper. I can help in covering the smell of mares. I think as long as you know 150% that you have control of your horse, you will be fine.
I had a QH stallion that I took to shows and trail rides... he had the best manners of any of my horses period. If he didn't, he wouldn't have stayed a stallion :) Everyone assumed he was a gelding LOL
A well behaved/trained stallion is no different than any other horse showing. I have seen many mares act worse. Backing up, peeing, ect.
If a stud is NOT behaved, it needs more training, or its balls hacked off if thats just the horses disposition.
