    I have a question or two. What's the difference between showmanship and halter?

    Also is there a type of showmanship class that only judges how the handler shows the horse instead of judging the horses conformation?

    Showmanship is judged on the exicution of a pattern on the ground by exhibitor and horse. It is not judged on conformation. A halter harse can be on 2 feet the whole class and still be judged as grand champion - as long as the judges get a long enough look at him to see his conformation obviously where as a showmanship class is a performance event - judged of how the handler can command their horse in the pattern. Very different classes - same attire. It is like comparing show jumping to dressage - the turn out and presentation may look the same but the events are completely different :) hope this helps a little.

    And thanks Love a Hero, and welcome :)

    Because in ORDER TO RIDE you have to be able to control a horse on the ground.

    Why are you trying to be so rude?

    You are like this in every forum and you have no reason for it.

    I'm getting in on this one late, but thought I would add a few of my showmanship pics. Some are quite recent, some are very old. [img]
