It looks like there are going to be some fun fairs and the such this year, and though Cin isn't really a WP or Barrel horse, I am feeling like participating as a lot of my friends are. A lot of people think he would do well in Halter or Showmanship but I am CLUELESS as to what I should be doing. I have a friend who says she will help me with Cin but I thought I'd ask for a little more input here on clothing, halter, etc.
The last time I did anything WP was back in the 90's when people wore colorful shirts and scallop edged show CHAPS and matching western boots, vests etc. And um, I guess that's not the style these days.
And as for a halter, I'm not sure what color to get. I have his light blue halter I take to dressage shows (the one in my avatar) but I was thinking of something leather with silver. I mean, if I'm going to lean a little more WP I might as well go the distance. What do you guys think of a light oil or natural leather halter for him? I'm worried that a darker color will blend too much and make it look like someone glued silver to his face. I also noticed that most show leads have chains. Um, yeah, Cin flips out if you put a chain on him.
What are your guys's ideas, remarks, etc?
