The Yearling Longe Line class.

What are your thoughts on the Yearling Longe Line classes?

This would be a ApHC class; I have a 7 month old appaloosa I'd like to get out and show next year, just to have some fun and let him see the world.
I've looked into it a little, but that is about it; I plan to look more into it but would love first hand accounts or experiences.

Does he have to be halter quality? Because I honestly don't think he is anywhere close . I think he moves ok, he stands a little toed out in the back right now because he hasn't had a trim yet (he is a bit of a rescue in the works)... but I'm hoping we can improve that (I know you can't fix it, just improve it).

What will it take to get him there? I'm not looking to win big, but I don't want to look like an idiot out there either!
I really would like a better grasp on what kind of horse it takes to compete.

A little more about the horse:
He is in the process of getting registered; I need to take photos but I want to wait until the 20 inches of snow melts and/or he sheds out a bit.
He, thus far, is Non-characteristic or solid
He is 7 months old, 13 hands as of last Wednesday
Here is his pedigree: Myspotsundetectable Appaloosa



thanks.

From what I've read, they don't have to be halter horse quality, but they do need to be balanced and show the desired conformation for a future pleasure mount, but it's mostly judged on movement.

I have a colt the same age who I'm planning on taking out next year, but he has halter performance breeding so either way he's got a great shot. I honestly have no idea what the quality of the ApHC is in the LL classes, maybe look up youtube?

I've got a lovely bunch of Neuticals,
There they are all standing in a row

That is a link to the ApHC Rule book. Sorry.. it wont let me just copy and paste a section. But yearling Lunge line starts on Pg. 173. YOu can put the page number in at the bottom so you don't have to search.
And you do realize that since he has no color (yet), You will have to get a performance permit to show him?

Yep $250 later :roll:

When all is said and done it will have cost me somewhere around $400 or more to register the colt I got for free haha.

Now that's dedication to a horse.

Yea. I understand. We have 6 appaloosas (all related... lol)in the family. And two are stock. So my mom and sister have the two with no color. And actually they are both starting to get color. They are turning 5. So we can get their papers upgraded :) But they are truely wonderful horses.
I now have my own place and I can tell you my horses eat the best feeds and hays while im eating ramen. But they are my passion. My life. So I understand the dedication part. But good luck with him in Lunge line. And if I talk to the breeder we have got all of our horses from I will ask for any tips ;)
