showing help
 
okay...i have been showing all my life...but this will be my first time going without a trainer. :shock:

I will be entering a Low Jumper class 2', a Schooling Hunter Class 2', a Long Sturrip Class 2'3 and a Hopefull Hunter Over Fences 2'6 '3. Depending on the day I might drop the Hopefull Hunter Class.

I have not done any out of barn shows in a while and i have a few questions.

Jumpers
1. Can I use my running martingale? 2. Attire is a polo, breeches, and tall boots? 3. Can I use any color saddle pad "square"? 4. Can I use open front boots and bell boots?

Hunters
1.Do manes and tails have to be braided?

Both
I use a Elevator Bit when im doing jumpers is that okay? If not can I use a Full Cheek Twisted Snaffle. For Hunters what bits can I use other than a D-Ring Snaffle?

Thank you so much for your help =]

Jumpers:
1) Yes
2) You can go "formal" (breeches, show shirt, and show jacket) or "informal" (breeches, polo) Tall boots are best.
3) I believe so... I prefer white to show though.. it's more .. professional?
4) Yes.

Hunters:
Braids are a part of your overall turnout, which the judges will judge. It is considered to be proper hunter attire to braid at least the mane.

Both:
To be 100% sure, check with the show stewards. You can use the bit for jumpers for sure, not 100% sure about hunters.


GOOD LUCK! Have fun!

Any form of elevator bit is not allowed in the hunter ring, but for the jumper ring an elevator is perfectly fine (what I show in).

For Jumpers
(1)Yes you can use the running (2)yes if its a schooling show (3)yes you can use any color/shape saddle pad you want if its a schooling show (4)yes boots are allowed

For Hunters
(1) its up to you. It adds to your overall appearence. You can still win without a braided mane and tail, but it gives the judge a better feeling to see a well put together horse

I hope this helps. If you have anymore questions just ask :D
