Go with the show halter!

Stuck with the rope for schooling!

The point of showing your horse in hand in any class is to see how the horse moves off your body and how you show the horse on the ground. If it were me I would show in a show halter, just because judges also look for the overall appearance of a horse when in a show ring but it looks like it is certainly your choice.

Long lead Lines that match flat halters?

When I see a show halter with matching lead line the line is usually rather short, flat, leather, and has a chain. Are there any that are between 12' and 25' feet long?

Some of the obstacles require you to stand 10' away from your horse with a loose line (backing), others require at least 4 feet between the handler and horse.

In my opinion a nice rope halter with a rope line that has a suitable feel for the obstacles would look nice and appropriate, whereas a show halter would look mismatched, or crossing disciplines.

I haven't been in a show and I don't own a rope halter. But reading what others say I would use a rope halter. In the end it could get you more points. I personally would try and get her to do it in a flat halter but there isn't anything wrong with standing out a bit and using a rope halter sense it is acceptable.
