I know you do Arabians, but all the photos are arabs? Is this inspection just for arabs? While I know arabs are included in the registry, I thought they were not common to the inspections.
Allsion you are correct in that typically you will not see a lot of Arabians included however they are eligible. The Arabians you see in the photos on the flyer are of my stallion HG Esquire+, who IS a Purebred Arabian and was actually the 2010 AWS Sire of the year. Another is a son of his whom we bred, Hy Wynds, who is also a PB Arabian and was the site Gold Medalist at the Farm you mentioned you trained at in 2010 and was also his age group Gold medalist end of year recipient. This inspection is for all that qualify to be ran through ~ not just the Arabians....

I handled a number of horses, including the stallion in my avatar and his offspring. I haven't the last couple of years, though.

This stallion belonged to Lochill, so I did most of their handling. However, I was not at the 2010 or 2011 inspections in the area.

Druy, they run it very traditionally. You need to be fit!! You have to run the triangle in such a way that your horse trots with as much extension as you can manage without having the horse break into canter. If you would like more info on how to present your horse, let me know. There is a real formula to this presentation that differs from most "halter"/showmanship.

Sounds like the Sport Horse classes we just did. Magic and I took First in a class of 14- Her score was 93. We'll be attending another SH Competition next month. If it's similar to that, then I have a good idea.
I certainly wouldn't mind more info though; it's always good to learn from different sources...

I have no idea what sport horse classes entail. The name makes one think that they are similar. The biggest difference I know from most in-hand classes is that you do not want the horse to stand square. You want an open stance with the open side toward the judge. As the judge changes side, you step the horse forward (or back) a step to open the other side. Try to get the horse to stretch the neck forward to show off the topline. Arab people are usually better at this than anyone else ;).

Then the trot of the triangle. It is not uncommon to have to do it more than once.

Also nice but conservative dress is appropriate. Make sure it doesn't make seeing your horse's movement difficult. Wear quiet contrasting color. It is OK to wear a clean pressed white polo with khaki slacks, if you want a casual look. Nothing bright or distracting.

It does sound similar.. SH walks a smaller triangle first, and then trot a much larger one. The dress is the same as well. The stance is slightly different, but that is easily adjusted, and the neck, yes we Arab people are used to a lotta neck.. ;)

This is what I wore in Hunter Class, but I wore the same thing without the jacket for SH.


Thanks Allison!

Dru ~ peak here for a few videos that might be helpful as well.

This one is at SHN's where one of the Esquire+ kids (Evan Almighty presented in the 2 YRO Colt class) was presented by a Open/WB handler, Tommy Doyle and our gelding was presented by an Arabian trainer, Mr. Larry Jones.


This one is NOT at a show but rather the inspection and is the same gelding as in the previous video yet handled by my husband. It does have alot of his baby pics too so pls feel free to fast forward. This was done by us for his new owner Same gelding that is in the photo jumping :

And this is Esquire+ being shown at an Open show (Dressage at Lexington) last year with the Warmbloods by the Open/WB Handler Tommy Doyle where he went Reserve Champion Stallion. The video is pretty crappy but you'll get at least an idea somewhat...

I always find that by SEEING what is being told to me helps tremendoulsy! I am going to TRY to catch up with you this evening after 5:00
