Head lowered or raised in pleasure comp.?
God, I learned this a while ago but it just sank out of my brain like quicksand : /
It's spring again and show season is approaching, and I mean FAST! So... ouch.
In western pleasure, should the horse's head be lowered or raised? Hm...
Man do I feel... newbie-ish.
Anyways, I was informed this morning that someone actually wanted me to ride their horse in a competition next weekend. Hence the reason I need info, PRONTO. The only details I got from my riding coach was that the mare was a 7 y/old registered Paint mare by the name of Doc's Keepin' Time. Everyone calls her Minute or Minnie. Sounds like fun, eh? Apparently she has some bad habits in the stable, though - cribbing and kicking at stall doors.
I'm going for a "test ride" tomorrow after school. Wish me luck!
Time, truth and hearts.
